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

About Karen

Every cake smash photo-shoot project started with brainstorming a theme. For Bowie’s cake smash session, her Mommy was looking for a theme that portrays a simple, happy, and healthy little baby.

Bowie is very out going. She loves to smile, loves to play with other little children, loves to kiss boys, and loves to go out everyday. When she doesn’t get what she wants she yells at Daddy. She likes to feed Daddy and Mommy when she does not want her food.

Bowie’s Mommy Googled “baby girl cash smash photo” to get an idea of what other babies’ cake smash photos are. There are hundreds or thousands picture there with different color themes and all look pretty. She finally chose Pink and Gold as Bowie’s theme colors. She believed Bowie would look very pretty in it. In addition, pink is her own favor color since she was a child. “I wished I had everything in pink in my room such as bedding, wall color, furniture, etc. Obviously, I did not get what I wanted, so I pass my wishes to Bowie. Not sure she would like pink as much as I do. Daddy has been complaining about too much pink in Bowie LOL.”, said Bowie’s Mommy.

We came up with a simple but elegant princess theme with Pink being the main color and accented with Gold. Tutu, onesie, matching bow headband and chunky necklace designed and handcrafted by Tutu Gorgeous Girl.

Bowie’s Mommy didn’t really have any concerns prior to the session. “Bowie is pretty out-going. The session turned out good. 5 stars overall”!

Advice from Bowie’s Mommy: “Keep it simple and be your normal selves. I should have planned out more of the scenery and babies nap timing.”

Bubble bath theme is included in every cake smash session. The bath tub was filled with lukewarm water. Bowie didn’t want to come out.

Bowie had her first birthday party a week after the cake smash session. Take a look at the party setup that Bowie’s Mommy put together.

Birthday Party Setup

“My husband was no help LOL but the rest of my family was very supportive of it. Most of the stuff was from Amazon, gotta love Amazon Prime. The cake was from Audrey’s Concerto. Really do love their cakes. We buy a lot of cakes from them every year.”

From MuSen:

I am so in love with Bowie’s princess theme cake smash. Simple but elegant. I love providing my clients with collage designs. Below are what I did for Bowie:

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."
