I have been photographing sweet Charlie since before he was born. It’s always an honor to be chosen to capture a family as they grow.

His favorite song right now is Baby shark. Daddy started singing and Charlie was dancing. Look at those little teeth!

He was so happy this morning. I just love this closeup.

Look at him standing up! When did he get so big? ūüôĀ

Look at his eyes here! He is gorgeous! If you are looking for Cypress photography in the Houston area, contact me now.

I love when mommy and daddy want to join in. Look how sweet this family is.

That look on Charlies face while Daddy is holding him up! I love it.

Look at that smirk with his mommy.

Cake time! Charlie devoured his cake. We eventually had to take it away, he would have eaten it all!

So happy eating his cake.

Look at that smile! He loved smashing his cake.

Grahm and Brody first came to me to capture their half birthday portraits. Look how cute they were!

This time it was for their first birthday portraits. Time flies! Look how much they have changed in 6 short months.

We started off with some outdoor portraits of the boys.

Just look at Brody’s little teeth!

They loved being outside.

Next we went inside for their cake smash! Momma wanted a simple setup with gray and blue. I love their giant cupcakes by A Piece of Cake

Double the boys, double the cake!

Grahm was all about his cake. He wanted to take big bites!

Brody took some bites, but then was more interested in crawling off. Thank goodness I had an assistant to help him back to his cake each time ha ha!

I love this one! Momma has her hands full and this session was no exception. But look at that smile. Also notice Grahm still eyeing his brothers cake!

I’m so in love with the candid shots we got of them playing with their cake. Grahm was all about stealing his brothers cake!

I have been capturing Jaxson since he was a newborn. I have loved seeing him grow through the years. He has to be the cutest baby I have ever seen! Look at those rolls.

Katy baby photographers

How can you even pick a favorite? I’m obsessed with them all. Those rolls and that smile! He even laughed out loud when he smiled!

Capturing Jaxson’s first birthday portraits was amazing. He was the happiest little guy and gave the most beautiful expressions.

He gave out the biggest laugh when I captured this one. Just look at those tummy rolls! I am in love.

Katy baby photographers

His little jeans with suspenders were just the cutest. I cannot handle those little teeth.

Katy baby photographers

Can you believe he is walking? I got so excited seeing him take off.

Momma got this portrait matted in a 16×20 reclaimed wood frame. I cannot wait to see it!

Jaxson wasn’t sure about his cake. He did not think getting messy was all that it was cracked up to be!

Katy baby photographers

I adore his cake! His theme was dinosaurs.

Katy baby photographers

He did not want to eat it! We tried and tried but after one bite that was it!

And that was a wrap.

Cypress photographer – I can HEARTILY believe Brenna is 1

MJ’s Photography is a Cypress photographer located in the Katy area.

I can “HEARTILY believe Brenna is 1!”

Cypress photographer

Sweet Brenna is 1 and I cannot believe it. Brenna is a heart warrior, so of course her theme had to include hearts!

Cypress photographer

Isn’t she beautiful? She has the most perfect little features. We had to show off her scar. I hope she always knows how special that scar is, how tough is shows she is.

Miss Brenna drove 8 hours round trip for her first birthday portraits. She was a little nervous at first, but she warmed up. Mom says that she is used to being pricked and prodded, so it makes her nervous. Poor sweet girl!

Cypress photographer
That tongue…that scar…that face

This is a favorite! Look at that little expression.

Cake Smash!

Cake time. Cypress photographer

Momma saved the top of her cake from her baby shower for Brenna’s 1st year cake smash session! How special is that? It makes it extra special.

Cypress photographer

Brenna was not the biggest fan of the cake, but most 1 year old are not. She still did so well and gave the cutest faces!

Cypress photographer

Putting sweet baby girls in vintage dresses with bonnets just gives me all the feels.

Color or Black & White? I cannot choose.

Elise is one! MJ’s Photography –¬†Houston baby photographer

East Texas first birthday photographer

Somehow I blinked and my newborn baby is turning one years old. How does that happen? It can’t be!

Houston baby photographer

It is the eve of her first birthday and as I sit and look through all of her birth and newborn pictures, I wonder just where the time has gone. An entire year has went by. I cannot wrap my head around it. They always tell you that the years are short when you have kids, they are right. They are so very short.

Elise is such a joy. She loves to laugh, smile, crawl, and get into mischief. She is the light of the room. She looks up to her big sister and her big sister could not love anyone more. I love seeing them together. Houston baby photographer

She is just under 20lb. She still doesn’t have any teeth! Not a one! She is taking steps, but doesn’t fully walk. That doesn’t stop her, she crawls up playscapes and all over the yard. She is into everything. She can climb and she can climb up high. She says Mamma, Dada, Bye bye, Emma, and night night. She plays peek a boo, hide and seek, chasing after her big sister, and she loves her animals. She sleeps from 6pm to almost 8am. She is still taking two naps, this girl loves her sleep. She will eat anything you put in front of her. No teeth, but can eat anything! I’m amazed. She is such a blessing to us.

Each month I captured her little personality. This cake smash was a blast.

Miss Macee was such a ham for her first birthday portraits. I have been lucky enough to capture her from the time she was in her mommy’s belly until now. She has sure grown, but that precious personality has stayed the same.

She has the most beautiful and captivating eyes.

Sugar Land first birthday photographer

This little girl gave out the biggest smiles for her daddy during her first birthday portraits. Mom did amazing with her outfits!

Sugar Land first birthday photographer

Here are some of the many faces of MJ. It was so hard culling her gallery because each face made an amazing picture that I could see mom hanging in her home. I just love her amazing personality.

I love doing first birthday sessions. We start off with them in a different outfits and just let them be themselves. Here are some more faces of MJ! I just love them.

Then we get to the fun part….the CAKE! I love watching them dig in. Macee was all about her cake, she went to town on it! She had the cutest little beard from the icing.

Just look at her grin! She sure does know how to smash a cake!

Longview cake smash photographer

I absolutely love getting to photograph my newborns at their first birthday. I have gotten to see Daniel grow over this past year and I have enjoyed it so much. They grow so fast!

Mommy got this first image below on her fine art canvas. I can’t wait until it comes in!

Daniel has grown into the most adorable chunky baby boy! Look at those gorgeous curls. He’s standing, taking steps, and soon will be running with his mommy chasing after him!

He started walking to his mommy here and I teared up. I just remember his newborn session like it was yesterday and now I am doing his first birthday session.

He started walking to his mommy here! I most definitely teared up.

Daniel’s mom made his cake for his cake smash session. It turned out great! We decided to do his cake smash session in front of the creek. He just loves water so much!

He wasn’t sure at first. He was really into tasting those delicious rocks, but once mommy showed him what the icing tasted like, he dug in!

I just love how you can see his tiny bottom teeth!

Katy first birthday photography

After he turned the cake upside down, he took a little dip in the creek! (Don’t worry grandma was right behind him)

Have you heard of a Cake Smash session? There are a lot of trends that come and go, but a Cake Smash session is here to stay. I am a Cypress baby photographers and I love doing Cake Smash Sessions. I typically schedule them when the baby is around 11 months old. That way they are done by the time the Birthday party is thrown!

Here’s how Cake Smash sessions go down at MJ’s Photography |cypress first birthday portrait

MJ -cypress first birthday portrait

  • We plan a theme. Since most of my Cake Smash sessions are of clients who are part of my “grow with me” plan, meaning I have done their newborn portraits and 6 & 9 month milestones, we usually already have a consistent theme going with their little one. I do get new clients that come in just for their Cake Smash session, in that case we put together some ideas. I am more of a simple background kind of photographer, so I stick to the basics. What colors do they want? What theme is their birthday party going to be done in? I provide most of the props, such as the large number 1, the things for them to sit on, the background banner that displays O-N-E, and some other accessories. Of course lots of parents choose to bring more and that is completely ok!

cypress first birthday portrait – MJ

  • We plan outfits for their Cake Smash session. I allow a couple outfit changes. We usually do one outfit before the cake, that way we can get an “official” first birthday portrait. Then we change them into their “cake smash outfit.” For girls, some opt for the tutu and necklace look, a romper, or a cute onsie with a number 1 displayed. For boys, my favorite option is the shorts with suspenders and a little hat! Some other cute options are bloomers and a matching bow tie, or just a diaper cover. Again, less is more.

  • Parents bring the cake for the Cake Smash session. The main reason for this is because of allergies. Each baby is different and it is safer if the parent brings the cake. I am big on baby safety whether it is a¬†newborn portrait or a¬†cake smash session. Most opt for the smaller cake. There is not need for a¬†huge cake to make it a success. You want to bring the cake at room temperature, that way it is easier to dig into. Of course, living in Texas, this is never a problem! Colors to avoid? Red. Why? It is so hard to clean off of them and leaves them with a skin dye for a little while. For icing, avoid fondant-it is really hard to break into and can create a choking hazard.

cypress first birthday portrait

  • Can I just assume that my baby will dig in? No. Not all babies will. My daughter wanting nothing to do with the cake and avoided it at all costs. Some do that. She also had never had cake before. Babies are hesitant with new textures, so give them a little practice run before with a small cupcake, this will help.

cypress first birthday portrait

  • Lastly, make sure to bring wet wipes, extra clothes, and plan on giving your little one a good bath when they get home! ¬†There will be cake everywhere, but that’s the whole point of a Cake Smash session!

cypress first birthday portrait

Cake smash sessions are a blast. It is such an amazing way to capture their personalities¬†for¬†their first birthday.¬†¬†I love photographing first birthdays. So much personalities in such little babies! The only problem with cake smash sessions is, WHY DIDN’T THEY COME AROUND SOONER! I wish I had one of myself ha ha!
