a smashing success | cake smash photographer

Oh my word! That is all I have to say for this session. This little girl was SUCH a cutie! She was just the sweetest thing… and she really got into her cake smash :) It made for the most fun in an afternoon a girl could have :)

Thanks so much for spending some time with me, it was so funny watching your little princess get thoroughly covered in cake! I absolutely adore these sessions…. 1 year olds are just so amazing and fun to be around!

Seriously cute!!!


Her mom brought all this awesome stuff for her session! We had so much fun outfitting her up!

AND then…… it was cake smash time!! I have so many favorites, it was incredibly hard choosing a few to blog! These sessions are just the greatest.

At first she was not sure what she was supposed to do lol. She was looking at us like ‘ummmm ok… what now?’!

Then she decided ‘ok I’ll just touch it, are you happy?’.

Which brought on another look of ‘seriously what am I supposed to be doing here?’ while mom and I were cracking up.

And then it was ON!

Heehee look at her face now :)

And a brief glimpse of what else went on….

Love these sessions!!! Thanks so much for bringing her by!

I love that I have been around long enough to keep getting repeat customers!!! This little guy was so super sweet at his newborn session!!! I was so excited because it was the first time I got thepose and he let me take so many more!!
He was just as wonderful at his one year old session as his newborn. A bonus for mom… there were no nakey shots so there was no fear of poop 😉

Today was such a random weather day…. when I left for the session I was SURE we wouldn’t be able to do it. We were meeting at Fish Creek and when I left home is was totally storming. Thunder, lighting, and some crazy rain. But…. we decided to try and we are so happy we did!! It was beautiful at the park! No rain at all, we were actually fighting sunlight at some points. When we were leaving the thunder (and mosquitos) were rolling in. So we timed it perfectly. He is so very cute. Thanks so much for letting me spend some more time with your wonderful family!! It was a pleasure seeing you all again.

We even snuck in a cake smash… OUTDOORS!! So completely awesome. He demolished that cake :)

Oh my how I love 1 year olds!! And cake. Put the two together and it is a session in HEAVEN! Mix that up with someone whom I have taken photos from since before he was born… and it was just pure sweetness.
Love this cute little baby boy :)

While there are still tons of pics to go through the smash ones were just too sweet to pass up! Thanks so much C for bringing him over and saying yes to the smash!!! He is over the top cute and as always it was an extremely fun sessions with you!

This one cracks me up. Every time I look at it!
The problem when mommy is an extraordinary baker is…. betty crocker just doesn’t cut it 😉
Everyone together now. Awwwwwwww.
What a good sport. Gushing cuteness.

One year old fun!!!

Oh to be one again :) what an amazing age. Learning to walk, starting to talk, drooling everywhere…….. I love this age! It is so much fun photographing one year olds. Because shortly after one, getting pics of kids is about 10X harder hahahahaha.
This little man has been in a few posts. He is just happiness. You can’t help but be happy around him. As you can tell he is also a total ham. He kept us on our toes…. almost tipping the bucket over, tearing down a backdrop, and running away from us. But well worth it!! The pictures are just amazing. Make me wish I had been doing this when my kids were small!!!
Also included – a few more pics of the cake smash. Which has quickly made it to the top of my list of very fav types of shoots.

the beginning of the cake smash…. he was DEFINATELY more interested in the candle!!!

Oh he wasn’t enjoying himself at all 😉

Well today FINALLY came :) I have been waiting for this lil man to turn one as much as his mom has been dreading it!!!!!!
I have wanted to do a cake smash/1 yr old shoot for SO LONG!!!! I was so excited for this shoot, the night before I was talking about it all night. SO – this isn’t his blog post… I have a bit of editing ahead of me for that. BUT as it was shot with my 50 (although not even close to wide open lol) I wanted to slide in some pics.
I love these types of shoots…. I’m really hoping I get some more of these in the future!!!

So I mad a little storyboard for one of my fav lil men. I met him when he was 6 months old to get his 6 month old pics and I am so lucky to have made a wonderful friend (his mom) in the process. Here’s to many many years of great friendship and good pics :)

Storyboards get printed on boards or canvas and are FANTASTIC. They look just as you see them here. I like them just cause you get to see more pics in an image 😉 I converted one to one of my fav (different) black and whites…. it’s like a little blueberry got mixed in to the conversion.
