Garden tea party themed birthday session and boho cake smash | Long Island baby photographer | Michelle Behr Photography

When it came time for Amelia’s cake smash we knew it needed to be outdoor since her newborn session was outdoors as well! In the same private location, we staged a garden tea party theme and a boho themed cake smash! We used Hydrangea which we had used for her newborn session and momma got in a shot just like her newborn photos! The boho theme was so fun to style! We decided on dreamcatchers and feathers and a naked iced cake by Flour Blossom Bakery. Amelia decided that cake wasn’t for her, but we didn’t mind since she gave us so many amazing photo opportunities beforehand. Take a look at her first birthday photos and cake smash session below!

Why you need to have a professional newborn session…

You need to have a professional newborn session so you can have a beautiful gallery to cover your walls with, make birth announcements with, give your children self esteem by knowing they are important enough to be displayed throughout your home with, and of course so you can remember the fleeting moments of how tiny your little baby was when they were born!

This was a super sweet session in my studio, located in Greenlawn, Long Island. Big brother was amazing with his new sister. That smile is everything. We got a nice hanging pose for mom and a lot of purple, of course! Enjoy some photos from the session below.

The most amazing part of this job is watching my clients families grow. The little guy is the third boy for this beautiful family whom I love to photograph. Just last year we had done their second son’s cake smash! We had to grab one quick shot of all of the boys together before they went home with daddy and we focused on the newest little boy! Sharing some sweet shots from his session below.

*Remember to book your newborn sessions early so you don’t miss out on these special photos! Around the 20th week of pregnancy is a great time to book.

Newborn photography | Huntington Long Island

I am back at it today! I only have like another 200 sessions to blog! This is one of my recent favorites. She was such a sweet little baby to pose. She did wake up for the parent posing portion of her session, but we made it work. We even captured a smile when momma went to kiss her teeny, tiny toes!

*Remember to book your newborn sessions as far in advance as possible. After your 20 week anatomy scan is a great time or even sooner. I do book up quickly and hate to have to turn anyone away. I love to pose newborns and I don’t want to miss out on yours!

2nd Birthday Photo Session | Long island baby photographer | Michelle Behr Photography

So it’s been two years since I have blogged. It is only appropriate that I start blogging again with the very family I left off with! Last blog, Aviana had just been born! Now we just had her 2nd birthday session! We always have so much fun styling her sessions. This one was no exception. A dreamy unicorn themed birthday session, what more could an adorable little 2 year old want?! I love the gold and blush soft tones of her photo session. These photos are made for a wall in momma’s home for sure!
