When Do I Book My Cake Smash Session? | Northern New Jersey Cake Smash Photographer

When is the best time to book a Cake Smash Session?

I get this question every now and then, but majority of the time a lot of people inquire right around their little one’s 1st birthday.

If I can give any advice it would be to book your session sooner rather than later. The sooner the better actually! I have clients who book their Cake Smash Sessions right around when their little one turns 5-6 months old. Is that too early?! NO WAY!!!!

A lot of time and planning go in to my Cake Smash Sessions. Custom sets can take a few weeks to put together and design. Also, I love having the photos done and ready for the 1st birthday and for the birthday boy’s/girl’s party.

So, don’t be afraid to book your custom Cake Smash Session early! I can’t wait to see you here at my Cake Smash Studio located in Hewitt, NJ. (Northern New Jersey)

Baby Girl Chaparro's Newborn Session - Northern New Jersey Newborn Photographer

The studio located in Hewitt, NJ was nice and warm and awaiting the arrival of a tiny little newborn girl. Pink wraps and backdrops were out and waiting, along with gorgeous headbands and props.

This gorgeous little lady couldn’t be more perfect for her session. She transitioned between setups perfectly and was so squishable and adorable!

Mom and dad picked the perfect shade of pink for her session and decided on the most adorable props. I can’t wait to have her back in the studio in Northern New Jersey soon for milestone sessions!

Dubsado - The Most Awesome Client Management System!

Let me talk to you about the most awesome client management system ever created . . . Dubsado!

Before I was introduced to Dubsado, I did everything the old fashioned way when it came to my business . . PAPER and PEN. What in the world was I thinking?! I never sent out electronic invoices, never put any client names in to a computer system . . NEVER.

I was then introduced to Dubsado and it has changed my business beyond words, no joke. I tried a few different trial runs of a few different client management programs and Dubsado by far was the easiest to use, most visually appealing to me and my clients loved it!

I no longer have 100’s of papers on my desk with names and numbers. Everything is in Dubsado. I do everything from inputing client names, invoicing, sending out contracts, sending out prep forms and questionnaires and even scheduling sessions!

No joke, I do all of that in this one program. My life is so much easier now having been using Dubsado for about 2 years. Thank you times a million Dubsado for coming in to my life!!!

Baby Boy J's Studio Newborn Session | Northern New Jersey Newborn Photographer

Baby Boy J was born right around Christmas and he joined my in our studio located in Hewitt, about 3 weeks later for an amazing session. We had everything out for mom and dad to choose from… Whether is would be something grey, blue or cream, and they decided to go with a nice light blue and cream.

He arrived quietly sleeping and I couldn’t wait to start cuddling him and start the session right away.

He snuggled in pretty well and preferred to be wrapped right away. How can you blame him, to be nice and snuggled up in a warm and fuzzy wrap.


After doing a variety of poses it was time to unwrap this little squish and get some adorable photos unwrapped. He just loved being wrapped, but he did fall asleep not long after and we got some adorable shots!

He was such the perfect little guy! I loved creating these memories for his mom and dad. <3

I am so happy they chose Jennifer Parrello Photography, LLC. to capture these amazing memories.
