Antique Plane Cake Smash - North Haledon, NJ

By Shannon Mulligan, Posted in Cake Smash

I LOVED this theme! How stinkin' cute is it? I was so excited when Mom emailed me about the session - she had the theme already picked out and was ready to go. There is nothing better than a very prepared Mom!Last week was the first time I met this family and boy did they travel far to get here. It probably took them about 2.5 minutes. They literally live 3 blocks from me. It's so amazing meeting and working with families that are in your town. I feel like we already knew one another because we are part of... read more.

By Shannon Mulligan, Posted in Cake Smash

Ok...let's just talk about this little guys eyes! They are absolutely beautiful. I could have snapped pictures of him all day! And lucky for me - this is the third time I've seen him in the past year. Tank will be turning ONE in just a few weeks and I love that I've been able to capture so many memories for his parents of him growing up!I first met Tank and his family at his newborn session. They then came back into the studio when Tank was just a few months old for some holiday photos. And now, I got to se... read more.

Elmo Cake Smash - North Haledon, NJ

By Shannon Mulligan, Posted in Cake Smash

Holy Moly Cuteness! Matthew came into the studio this weekend....on his 1st Birthday! I was so thrilled when mom mentioned it was his birthday! What better way to celebrate a birthday then to smash a Giant Cupcake!Elmo was the theme and I just loved the simplicity of it. We didn't get too crazy with ELMO everything - it was just the right amount. It allowed me to focus on the little cutie in front of the camera. Matthew LOVED his smash cake. It took him a little while to get into it, but once he discovered... read more.

Today's blog is a bit different but I have to spot light a very talented gal that I get to work with. It's not every day you find a vendor that you absolutely love!

Bubble Guppies Cake Smash - North Haledon, NJ

By Shannon Mulligan, Posted in Cake Smash

Oh Lucas....you little cutie pie! I had so much fun last weekend with Lucas and his parents. Lucas came into the studio after a little nap in the car so he was a little sleepy. Once we got him into his first outfit, he was loving the camera! He smiled and sat perfectly still for me. He loved looking at banner and balloons (love the shot of him sitting with his back towards me!) The session was moving along and Lucas was rocking it.We changed Lucas into his Birthday outfit and we were all set for the cake sm... read more.

Solomon Cake Smash - North Haledon, NJ

By Shannon Mulligan, Posted in Cake Smash

By far one of the best Cake Smashes to date!!!! Solomon was AWESOME! He came into the studio just after a quick nap in the car but let me tell you...you'd never know! Once we got him dressed and ready for his pre-cake smash photos, he was in model mode. He just stared into the camera and let me work my magic! And boy do these images show that. Solomon had beautiful eyes and the cutest little smile.Once we got him into his jeans and suspenders, he was all business. He knew what he had to do and he LOVED doin... read more.

OMG - Total cuteness overload! Dylan was such a little lover! I loved meeting him and his parents this past weekend at his first birthday Cake Smash session! I love that mom wanted to keep the theme nice and simple. With such a classic theme, I was really able to focus on Dylan's beautiful blue eyes and his super cute outfits! Not only did he sit and smile for me, he also shed a few tears and covered dad in icing! And right after the tears, came more smiles. A perfect Cake Smash session.Dylan had no issue e... read more.

COOKIES!!!!!!!!!!I was so excited when the theme was chosen for this cake smash! Who doesn't love Cookie Monster?!

Purple Minion's....I must been out of the loop because I thought Minion's were only yellow! But once I did some research, I found these crazy haired, one eyed, purple minions! How stinkin' cute!

Blue/Grey Cake Smash - Jake's 1st Birthday

By Shannon Mulligan, Posted in Cake Smash

Oh Jake.....the first little one to go face first into his Giant Cupcake. I could not have LOVED this session anymore. We put the cupcake down in front of him for two seconds and he was already interested in it and moving right toward it. NO ONE had to persuade him to dig in. That to me is the BEST type of cake smash!It took Jake about 4-5 min. to get the icing EVERYWHERE! He even had it in the back of his hair as if he was shampooing with it! Ohhh....I loved it. He was about done in 5 min. though and moved... read more.
