Maryland Child Milestone Photographer | A Sweet Treat

This sweet cake smash session was so much fun! Just look at that adorable smile. We celebrated in style, decorating his smash in a simple yet festive background with shades of blue balloons everywhere to commemorate this sweet little boy turning one. 


How Quickly a Year Flies

Getting to get to know clients over the years is one of my favorite parts of being a professional family photographer.  I captured the first weeks of life with a newborn session for this little charmer and he was just as sweet and adorable this time around. I loved seeing this special family back in my Maryland Photography Studio and documenting how much he has grown. 


Giggles Galore

Before we got down and dirty, smashing up some yummy cake, we captured some clean invidual portraits of this handsome man as well as some family portraits. He looked adorable in his Fall styled outfit with a button down checked shirt and a vest that was the icing on the cake :). I simply adored his giggles.


After we finished up with the pre-cake portraits, it was time to party. And boy was he was ready!  He loved getting to dive into his birthday cake and bop around the balloons. This sweet one year old was not shy at all and loved making faces for the camera. We had such a great time together. I look forward to seeing this family again next time!

one year old twin boy cake smash photography

The only thing better than one sweet baby is two sweet babies! That is exactly what we get with a twin Cake session! This was a session with two brothers who I had the pleasure of photographing as newborns too. See my favorite image from their newborn session at the end of this post! 

This was such a fun session. We started with portraits of the boys together and individually. As you can imagine with one year old twins, its always a challenge! Then we set up for their milestone birthday cake smash. When one was enjoying the cake, the other was crying, and vice versa. But that is the beauty of capturing the real life of twins :) 


Mom wanted a Thing 1 and Thing 2 Dr. Seuss theme to go along with their first birthday party decor. This theme was perfect for this rambunctious and adorable duo. I love the way it turned out! 


Siblings are something special but twins make that bond even closer. These boys have a built in best friend and I love capturing this relationship for them.  I have photographed several sets of twins over the years and they are each so special. 



Here at the studio, we customize our birthday sessions just for your baby. We have different options that we design for backgrounds, decorations, cakes, and more to make sure that we create modern, fun, timeless, and beautiful memories in these photos as best as possible.

Mamaslink babies visit the danielle sara photography studio

We had such a blast with all these adorable babies for Mamaslink's mini photo sessions at our Rockville photography studio! Here is just a quick preview at some of our favorites from this past round.  So much cuteness! 

If you have a baby one year and younger and are looking for a great way to connect with other moms in the area, sign up for the next session of Mamaslink!  It is a six-week class that explores different activities in the area for you to do with your little one. One of the classes is a mini-session at the Danielle Sara Photography studio. 


Bright and Happy Cake Smash photography session

I absolutely loved this cake smash photography session at our studio! I photographed baby C as a newborn and was thrilled to have his family back for his first birthday session.  He is the most adorable little guy with the biggest smile and cute personality! Cake smash sessions include pre smash portraits, which are sometimes some of my favorites.  I'm so glad I was able to capture this precious stage for his family. 

Mom wanted a clean, bright background for a festive cake smash and I think we nailed it. I aim to make every session customized yet cohesive, clean, and modern from the decor to the cake to the clothing. 

For this session, we planned to include his big sister in the cake smash since they both share the same birthday and she never had a smash.  We put all the details together so you and your little one can enjoy a memorable session!  

Baby Sylvie's session at the maryland newborn studio

I loved having this sweet family in the studio for their baby's newborn session.  This tiny girl was a peanut at about 5 pounds. She was so expressive and gave great eye contact when she was awake! Whether it’s simple sleeping portrait, staring up at you, or smiling, newborn portraits capture so much personality and emotion. It's always such an honor to be trusted to capture the first weeks in a baby's life.  

I love for parents to be able to look around their home everyday and remember how tiny their newborn was and how much their baby has grown. That’s where my job comes in! I work with my clients to document all of the sweet details of your baby so you can freeze time.  Then, I take it a step further by determining the images, sizes, and display options that best fit your home and style. The result is works of art out of your family memories for your family to enjoy now and in the future.  

Enjoy a little peak into Sylvie's portraits and her gorgeous white on white artwork created for her home.
