Briley Cake Smash


I LOVE doing 1 year cake smash sessions! You never know exactly what to expect when it comes to each child. Sometimes they dig right in and other times they take a small taste and evaluate the situation. LOL! They are all different and I really enjoy photographing these special moments in their life!


This past weekend I got to photograph Briley for her birthday session. She is definitely one of the sweetest little girls I’ve ever photographed. She was a little shy at first but she warmed up to me pretty quickly and flashed me some pretty little smiles.



Her mom Macy made all of her decorations and brought a beautiful quilt for her to sit on. She also made her cake! I love when my clients are so crafty! ūüôā




She wasn’t too sure about the icing. She liked it but she couldn’t figure out why it was stuck to her hand…? Lol! ūüėÄ


Overall I think she had a fun time! Who doesn’t like to get a little messy every now and again?!




Happy Birthday Briley!






Axel turns 1!!!


Hey everyone! I just had to share Axel’s one year/cake smash session with all of you!¬†I met up with Axel and his mom and dad¬†at the¬†Mtn. View¬†city park and¬†he was all smiles from the time¬†mom got him out of the car to the very end when we said bye. He was SO CUTE all dressed up in his mickey mouse outfit!


I brought a few props to his session, including some balloons, and he was mesmerized! He kept trying to grab his balloons and finally caught one after a few attempts. I think he was a little surprised! Lol!


It’s amazing how fast one year will go by. It seems like just the other day he came to see me for newborn photos.
I didn’t think he could get any sweeter …but he proved me wrong! ūüôā


After we spent a few minutes snapping photos we moved to a different area and got ready for the smash cake. Lauren informed me that Axel LOVES to eat so I was excited to see what he would do with his little cake.

She set it down in front of him and he immediately dug in! He didn’t need any coaching or reassurances from mom and dad…. he knew exactly what to do!



He stuck his tongue out at me towards the end and it made for a perfect picture! I think it’s safe to say we all had fun during his photoshoot and watching his little eyes light up was just the icing on the cake! ūüėÄ


I couldn’t resist¬†snapping a photo of mom and dad before they cleaned him all up! I think he was still trying to find some leftover icing! Lol!


My Very First Blog!


Hey guys! I have finally joined the blogging world! It’s definitely a learning process and I’m still finding my way around here. I consider myself pretty tech savvy but creating and customizing a website/blog is a whole new world. Hopefully I get the hang of it soon!

Anyways I wanted to start off my very first blog with my photoshoot of sweet little Charlee. Her birthday is coming up soon and I got the honor of doing her one year/cake smash photos!

It was SO hot and humid that day but Charlee didn’t seem bothered by it at all!¬†She was wearing an adorable¬†little tutu that her momma made! Kelsey also made her cake for the session.¬†CRAFTY MOM GOALS¬†right there!

We started out with doing some super cute pictures of her in her pink tent!



It’s amazing how much they change in one year and how we change with them! Our lives are forever altered when we bring our children into this world.



I think this picture says it all perfectly right here. The Lord gives us strength, peace, and courage to face each day. Because let’s face it, raising kids is HARD WORK right?! We¬†want to do¬†the vey best we possibly can to take care of the precious gifts He’s given to¬†us!IMG_4067logoweb

Charlee was really relaxed and just chill for most of our photoshoot. I could tell she seemed like she had a really laid back personality! I tried my tickle technique and got a few small¬†grins. ¬†Mom and Dad pulled out all the tricks to get her to smile for us after that,¬†“Peek-a-boo!” and “Where’d Charlee go?” was a couple, among many! ūüôā


Then it was time to EAT CAKE!






She was hesitant to dig into her cake at first, but no worries, Mom and Dad helped out!





After the cake smash we headed back down to the creek to clean up and splash around. We were all soaked in sweat and it felt AMAZING!
