First birthdays are such a big milestone and we are so glad you picked us, The Pod Girls, to document this fun time! I know how exciting it is because some moms have told us they have been thinking about this moment since even before their baby was born! Parents go all out when planning their little one’s birthday party – from picking a cute theme to ordering a cake, invitations, and decor to match. We enjoy seeing everyone’s Pinterest inspiration boards and bringing all of their ideas and visions to life. We even partner with and amazing party planner, Rise To The Occasions, who will be sure to give you a party to remember! Your baby only turns one once so why not do it up?

To make it easier for all you busy parents, we’ve put together an all-inclusive First Birthday Package that will save you lots of time! Included in our package is your portrait session along with the styling and outfits for the shoot, a custom SusieCakes cake, a framed party display piece, and my personal favorite – personalized party invitations designed by me! I love that every birthday invite I design is so unique and custom to your theme and style. Whether it’s girly & colorful, or rustic & mustaches, I’ve got you covered. Our cards are not only cute but fantastic quality too! We offer flat or folded cards in a variety of shapes and sizes printed on deluxe paper stock. Our paper options will make your card standout from all the rest! Choose a pearl finish that will give your card a soft shimmery glow, bamboo that has texture and weight, or our newest paper soft touch matte that feels like velvet and your friends and family won’t want to put it down. Check out some of my favorite party invitations below!  Which one is your favorite?

When booking a cake smash session, we take care of the cake design, order and delivery, your framed party display and of course the designing of your invites.
