First Birthday portraits & CAKESMASH & mILKBATH


You don't have to worry about purchasing and bringing outfits for your little one! I have lots of outfits  in sizes 12 - 18 months for boys and girls. Tons of accessories as well.  

Fun • creative • adorable

Wardrobe provided

If you're already coming to my studio, might as well jump in front of the camera for a couple family photos too!  We can take family photos, sibling photos, or some simple photos of your child before we move on to their birthday photos with a white background for no extra cost.

Family photos

I have over 200 backdrops for you to choose from for the adorable festive birthday photos. Small things like ONE signs can definitely be switched out. Just reach out if you want a theme that's not already on there and I'll see if I can help.

Your questions. Answered.






1. What are our options for the cake?

I can provide the cake for $25 extra, you choose the simple design from the list of options on this blog post
  HERE. I can provide a fake cake, which you can view on that blog post as well. Or you can bring it, if you bring the cake I recommend a 6 inch size and to avoid red frosting. 

2. Can a parent or sibling jump in for some photos?

Yes! That's why I offer photos on a solid white background for no extra fee, this is where people normally do the family and sibling photos. However if you wanted to do them on the themed setup, that's perfectly fine too, You'll just have to sit on the ground since the backdrops are small since they're sized for toddlers. 

3. What's the turnaround time for the photos?

I will send you a watermarked gallery within 24 hours from your shoot, you'll choose the photos you'd like from there. You'll receive the finished edited photos 7 days after you've chosen them. If you need them earlier just check in with me before booking.

4. Are prints included?

No, 10 digital files are included. You do have the option of purchasing prints through the gallery I'll send the finished photos on, or purchasing them on your own. 

5. Where are you located?

A home studio near Willowbrook mall, exact address will be sent after booking. 

6. How much do we pay to book?

You'll pay half of the session fee to book. The other half is due the day of the session. You can rather pay ahead of time by clicking a link in your appointment confirmation email, or I can simply swipe your card at my studio. 

"It was a pleasure working with Marykate! She took our daughter’s first birthday pictures. From the very beginning she was communicative. She explained the process well and worked with us to pick out the themes and the outfits for the session. She was amazing and knew how to keep our baby engaged in the photos. The photo session was fun and entertaining for my husband and I as well. We laughed so much and loved dressing her up in different outfits."
