Crystal Lee 


Myrtle Beach's Leading Cake Smash Photographer

Because life is an adventure and no year is faster than the first

You did it! You turned that little bundle of joy into a walking, talking bundle of energy and personality. They're graduating from baby to toddler... and that is something to celebrate!! 

Here we do FUN. We do COLOR. And we CELEBRATE like no one else!

Treat yourself to an amazing portrait experience, with unique photos that won't look like everyone else's.  

"An absolute joy to work with and has a great eye for posing! That fact that she’s a baby whisper doesn’t hurt either!!

She's very accommodating and patient

which makes for a stress free shoot. I’d give her more stars if I could!"

The Process

A custom experience, from Start to finish!

I take special pride in our fun, colorful cake smash sets that are custom designed to fit your unique theme or color scheme. You provide the baby and the cake, and let me take care of the rest! I'll even handle the cleanup.

Here's how it works:

1. Booking & Scheduling

It’s never to early to start planning your cake smash session! Session times are available weekdays between 9am-3pm and very limited Saturday mornings. These sessions are for baby only, no family or siblings.

Booking at least 2-3 months in advance will give me time to design your set and order any necessary items. I take last minute bookings when possible, but sessions booked less than 4 weeks in advance will most likely need to choose from what is currently available in studio, as I won't have time to create a fully custom set. 

To book, I just need a signed contract and $150 retainer payment to reserve your session date and time. 

2. Photo Session Styling

Now the fun begins! Once you’ve booked you will receive a detailed prep guide and questionnaire so that I can start the creative process! Please do your best to avoid falling down the Pinterest rabbit-hole... the selection there is limited and so many themes are overdone. Your little one is special and they deserve a cake smash set that is as unique as they are!

No need to bring props from home, I've got everything covered.
Save the banner and customized onesie for the birthday party. We'll discuss outfit selection so that you can choose an outfit that will photograph well, and I do have a few options available in my growing client closet for baby to wear. 

You'll receive plenty of communication from me before the session about what to expect and how to prepare.

3. During The Session

Cake smash sessions are roughly 40-60 minutes long. Some babies love to jump right in, while others need some time to get comfortable. "Stranger danger" is common at this age so I will take your little ones cues as we move throughout the session. 

We will start with one outfit for "clean" portraits" if your collection allows for it, then we move over to the cake smash set and finish with an optional matching bath splash. Not every baby enjoys the cake... but almost everyone loves the bath! 

4. After The Session

You will have a sneak peek from your session on social media within 48 hours! From there your images will be individually hand edited and your full gallery will be ready to view in just 2 weeks.

From here you'll make your download selections and approve any custom products that were included in your collection. Remember, these beautiful images were meant to do more than live on social media and your hard drive!

Displaying Your Photos

My goal is to create more than just photos for you… it’s to create art. To take this precious time of your life and document it in a beautiful, sometimes whimsical way that you can display as finished pieces of art in your home. My job as your photographer isn’t truly done until your images have been printed and displayed. Don’t just let these gorgeous photos sit on your hard drive!

I hope to provide you with beautiful, tangible pieces from your session that you and your family can enjoy for generations.
