I LOVE this baby girl. Today was actually my fourth shoot with her family, but last week, they came in for a cake smash just for A! She is so sweet and her big blue eyes melt me. She’s one of those babies you just want to put the camera down and hug in the middle of the shoot. She had fun crawling around the studio last week and loved digging into that cake. This was one of my favorite cake smash themes to date. The adorable elephant Sweet Indulgence adorned the cake with was just the right amount of playful in a timeless baby girl set! Enjoy your sneak peek!
Little K came to visit us for his first birthday, and he was so fun to hang out with! He has such a spunky little personality, and it definitely shows in his portraits. He LOVES trucks and cars, so we brought out our antique car for him to play with, and I don’t think there was an inch of the studio he didn’t cover with it.
He also loves puppies! We got him into his adorable puppy Halloween costume for a few shots, then HIS puppy, Dutch, made an appearance in the cake smash! Too cute!
If there was a leaderboard for “Best Dressed Baby: Fall 2012″, M would most certainly be on it. I can’t even handle the sportcoat with elbow patches! He looked perfectly dapper for his one-year formal portraits, and effortlessly pulled off a few vintage-inspired fall looks.
His birthday party theme was Dr. Suess, and we ran with that for our cakesmash! Sweet Indulgence created another perfect Cat in The Hat cake, and we had so much fun making truffula trees in the studio for it. Thing 1 and Thing 2 made another appearance, too. I think it turned out awesome, and M seemed to agree!
Happy Birthday, M! We can’t wait to meet your new younger sibling soon!
I first met adorable baby G back at her newborn session last year. She was a Gerber baby back then, looking just like a doll as she slept. If it’s possible, G was even more adorable as a 1 year old, running around the apple orchard. Her disposition was so sweet! After chatting with mom, we decided not to do a cake smash and to instead focus the session on G and portraits of them all together as a family. The orchard was a perfect spot for her to play and the apples were a big hit! And can we talk about those boots? They kill me! Enjoy your sneak peek!
We first met handsome baby J back in the spring for a little outdoor portrait special we ran. It was so much fun to have him back again to celebrate his first birthday last week so we could see how much he had grown. At 1 year old he was crawling all over our studio and loved exploring every toy and prop. I loved the bright colors mom chose for their family portraits and how she pulled everything together with the pattern of her shirt. Nice styling! The birthday outfit she brought J for his cake smash was to die for as well. Just an all-around-adorable session! Enjoy your sneak peek!
Talk about a gerber baby! I’m finally getting caught up from traveling over Labor Day and I’ve been dying to share this preview with you. C was such a gorgeous baby girl. I have to include one of the hat photos in this sneak peek because mom and I worked so hard at getting C to keep it on her head long enough to snap a photo. We tried every trick in the book and FINALLY got something just before we called it quits for our cakesmash. This is one of my favorite cake smashes to date. I always love when mom picks a different color scheme to mix things up. And what is cuter than little bunnies?! So sweet! Enjoy your sneak peek.
I constantly find myself wondering where a year could have gone when the sweet sleepy newborns I remember show up back at the studio as little people. I last saw adorable M as a newborn and she returned to celebrate her first birthday. She has the most stunning eyes (which of course I didn’t have the chance to see at our last visit). They are a marbled greyish-blue that almost look violet at times. Gorgeous! And don’t forget her long black lashes and contagious giggle. She had so much fun at her birthday session, as I think you can tell! I had just as much fun capturing it all on camera and loved catching up with mom and dad too. Enjoy your sneak peek!
I last saw this handsome little guy when he was about 4 months old. When he came to visit me for his first birthday last week, my, how things had changed! C was on the move and had lots to do exploring the studio. He loved all things that moved from planes, to trucks, to our new little wagon. Mom loved a cakes mash we did back in the spring with a Vinyard Vines theme so we broke out our favorite little whales and created an adorable set for C. He went straight for his cake, but it didn’t slow him down any. Even I was covered in frosting by the end of this one. Not that I ever mind, because the only decent way to get frosting off your fingers is to taste it! Enjoy your sneak peek!
Last week baby P and his family visited the studio and we had so much fun celebrating his first birthday. We started our session with the whole family in their Hanbok and took some beautiful portraits of P with his grandmother. Then we broke out the cake and decor for a sweet ending to our session! P was a huge cake enthusiast, but he much preferred playing with it than eating it. He wanted to paint our whole studio with the bright green frosting! If he is an amazing painter one day, I won’t be surprised. Enjoy your sneak peek!
Get ready for some cuteness! Baby V and I have been buddies since her 6 month session and I couldn’t wait for her to be back in front of my lens again. She is stunningly gorgeous from her little brown curls to her gorgeous blue eyes and she is SO expressive! She’s a busy girl, but never minds flashing me some giant smiles while she plays. Because dad was going to be in his dress whites, we decided to head down to the bay for the family portraits. Of course the blinding mid-day sun took the boats right out of our background, but I love how soft and washed out the resulting images are from all of that gorgeous backlight. V loved to simply run around and play with all of the toys I brought along. Then we set up with a sweet and girly nautical cake smash so V could dig in! She loved her cake, one of my favorite Sweet Indulgence creations to date. Enjoy your sneak peek S family!
