Hi, there! I’m Karen - a boutique family photographer with a special love for babies! 

About Karen

First birthday cake smash has become one of my favorite type of photo sessions lately. So much creativity, personality and characteristics involved. For this particular session, Mom is an enthusiastic R+F independent consultant and super passionate about what she does. For her son Jacob’s first birthday, we brainstormed the idea of having the baby role play a dermatologist along with a R+F themed cake smash.

The inspiration came from this advertisement picture. We therefore decided on a plain gray seamless paper background along with props and banners that would give us a laboratory look.

R+F Ad

Silver and white smash cake adorned with gum pastes and real R+F travel size products is hand crafted by Slice of Fancy/Sweet & Stuff.

R+F Smash Cake

Cake is vanilla flavor with lemon buttercream.

Chemistry bar glassware made of REAL borosilicate 3.3 lab glass capable off withstanding extremes in temperature is from Med Lab Supply.

Crafts By Jackie put together a thoughtfully designed happy birthday banner using fonts similar to R+F’s.

For Jacob’s safety we removed the glassware during actual cake smash

Cheers

Color liquids inside the glassware are actually Powerade.  Picture showing behind-the-scene Powerade cheers (“gon bay”).

Mom is also a good sewer. She made Jacob’s doctor smock out of her preggo pillow case. Jacob’s big sister used the remaining fabric and made her own doll a dress, on which she wrote heart-melting happy birthday wishes to her baby brother.

For this session I sneak peek with a first birthday cake collage and it was such a big hit.

People also responded so well to this bathtub picture.

Bathtub

This baby size bathtub is one of MuSen’s all time favorite props.

Wait! We are not done yet! After the cake smash we also took the little guy out for a walk and captured some lifestyle pictures there.

She listened to what type of photos we were looking to achieve and offered suggestions since she is in fact the professional! Karen was always very responsive if I had any questions leading up to the actual photo shoot and was an absolute pleasure to work with the day of our session. Everything went very smooth, and our proofs were delivered very quickly. After the selection process, our final images were delivered also very quickly and looked so amazing. We have received so many compliments and will be using Karen again in the future. I highly recommend MuSen Photography to anyone looking for quality professional photography!

I hired her to do my daughters first birthday party photos and she captured the moment perfectly. I was so pleased with her work I hired her again to do a mother and daughters photo shoot for Mother’s Day. She NAILED IT one of the most beautiful photo shoots I have ever seen. Karen picked the location, lighting, told us how to pose her eye for perfection is beyond words she saw my vision and made it come true. She also was very easy to contact and communicate with. The turn over time to receive the photos was fast and easy. Karen is also very sweet it was truly a pleasure working with her.  I highly recommend her and if perfection is what you seek Karen is definitely the one.  I look forward to working with her again. Thank you so much Karen you rock .

"Karen is absolutely amazing."
