KIND WORDS:

No. Every child is different and unfortunately toddlers are very unpredictable. They may be smiley at home but smile very little during the session. I will still photograph their seriousness and do all that I can to make them smile, it will definitely be joint effort. 

06. DO YOU OFFER RESHOOT IF BABY IS NOT SMILEY DURING SESSION?

No, there is no additional fee as long as you only want one cake. One cake is included in the session fee. If you would like for each child to have their own cake, there is a $50 fee. for the additional cake. 

05. I HAVE TWINS, IS THERE ANY ADDITIONAL FEE FOR 2 CHILDREN?

Yes. I have several places that I love. One website I highly recommend is etsy. They have several stores to purchase a picture perfect cake smash outfit. You'll want the outfit to match the theme and/or colors as much as possible.

04. CAN YOU RECOMMEND A PLACE TO PURCHASE A CAKE SMASH OUTFIT?

No. This session is focused on your little one. Toddlers only have a short attention span so we have to utilize the time wisely. There happy place usually last about 45 minutes to 1 hour. You can add on a separate family session for another date for 25% off.

03. CAN FAMILY PICTURES BE TAKEN AT THE CAKE SMASH SESSION?

Unfortunately this is sometimes the case. We can try different tricks to get them to look interested in and/or smash the cake; for example, we can put their favorite snack, like gummy bears, in the cake for them to dig out.

SEE WHAT WE OFFER

HI, I'M TAI!

meet your photographer

For 11 years I have been able to provide invaluable memories for families in the Clayton, RDU, and Fayetteville area. Their baby's tiny beginnings and
budding personalities will forever be remembered.

I am so grateful photography found me. As an introvert photography was not something I thought I could do but I push past shyness to give my clients an amazing experience. I will play your child's favorite jams (coco melon on repeat) and tap into my inner toddler to keep them entertained.

As a mother of 4, I unfortunately did not have my children's first year photographed and for one I only have snapshots with the random thumb covering the lens. This is one of my biggest regrets of their childhood and pushes me to make sure other families do not suffer the same fate. Your baby and all others deserve photos that tell their tiny beginning beautifully. 

Here are a few fun facts about me:




I love peanut butter out of the jar, I only need a spoon.

Chocolate is my kryptonite add coconut and I'm in Heaven

I love technology, especially if it makes my life easier

I keep 90s - 00s Hip-Hop & R&B on repeat

I'm spoiled and LOVE IT!

I'm a Taurus!
