Let me just say, I love planning cake smashes. I looove a good party theme. And I LOVED when Cora’s mom sent me a picture of the tutu she bought for our session. I definitely squealed. I immediately had the rest of the session planned out- backgrounds, banners, cake design, colors, balloons… I couldn’t wait! Cora probably had my CLEANEST cake smash session to date, but that’s pretty fitting for her golden, princess themed smash! And you might need a life vest when looking at Cora because you’ll probably fall in to the ocean of her amazing blue eyes. Enjoy little miss cutie, Cora!

      Oh my gosh, thank YOU guys. I had such a great time! <3 I LOVE watching my little clients grow. I can’t wait to have you back again!ReplyCancel

You read about his birth story last week and just like that he’s ONE. It kind of feels like it’s only been a week since Zac was born. Since we don’t plan to be out numbered, he is our last baby so I’ve been trying to soak up every detail. I would smell his soft head so much to try to remember that perfect new baby smell, I hold him for an extra minute before putting him down to bed in his crib, and no matter what I do, he just keeps growing (the nerve….LOL!) So here we are, with a one year old (and a 5 year old that needs his own session soon!) who are as different as night and day. Jesse is my calm, cautious, day dreamer and Zac is my energetic go-getter. I had no worries about his ability to destroy this cake, but I wasn’t too sure how much he would actually like EATING it. Even from his first days of food tasting, he never really enjoyed sweeter flavors. Bananas are about as sweet as gets. Anything with pears or apples… and forget about cinnamon! Raspeberrys and icky faces is all you’ll get from Zac. He was an all vegetables all the time kind of guy (though he is now slowly warming up to fruits.)  Matt enjoys unsweet tea and I have no doubts Zac will follow along in his footsteps. See for yourself how Zac vs. Cake went down:

Oh wait- first! I’m a sucker for side by sides, so here is newborn baby Zac next to Birthday Zac.

6lbs, 12oz; 19″ long vs 20lbs, 2oz; 28″ long! wow.

And we set up a little reenactment of Jesse’s cake smash from November 2012!

Ok now onto Zac’s session:

A little too sweet?

It’s interesting because he has sucked on a lemon slice or two at restaurants without flinching at all!

But a vanilla cake with vanilla frosting? ALL of the icky faces. Haha!

It was definitely smashed though!

Lashes. For. DAYS.

I’d call that a success! Try to slow down with that growing a little bit, ok bud?blogsig

After a ton of family sessions over the fall months, it’s so refreshing to get back into studio sessions when the weather turns cold. I get to sit in my warm studio filled with tons of winter light and I still get to capture amazing little moments. Mom and I planned out a few different outfits for Anna to model for us and we basically just hung out and laughed together watching Anna stare at us and joking that she needed a pantsuit because she was being all business. LOL! No matter what though, Anna is such a little beauty (and we actually got a ton of smiles, but it didn’t feel like it for a stretch there.) Six month sitter sessions are some of my FAVES.

1217191514161I love sneaking in family moments in 6 month sessions while they’re still tiny and squishy.

And you guys KNOW I saw this quilt, immediately instagramed it and had to get it in a shot with Anna.

Anna’s grandma got her this beautiful Japanese outfit in honor of her heritage! I LOVE IT.

    Emily, the pictures came out so beautifully! I love how you captured the love and joy of our family and the personality of our little Anna. Thank you for such an amazing session – and for trying so hard to get her to smile :). We had an amazing time!ReplyCancel

      Thank you so much Eriko! I had a blast with you guys. Anna was such a sweetie and all of your smiles are so contagious! I can’t wait to see you all again. 🙂 ReplyCancel

This cutie had me laughing the whole session. He was chatting us up almost the whole time! He was great at sitting in one spot though, that always makes my job a little less work 😉

Oh my gosh. Where do I start with Kai’s session. I am such a sucker for curly hair in it’s amazingly beautiful, natural state (blame it on my PIN straight hair and it’s inability to hold curl for more than five minutes.) Kai arrived at my studio with her hair in twists. Her beautiful mom (no, seriously guys, I snuck her into one of the pictures and she said she didn’t have her typical make up on, but girl came in looking better than me on my BEST day. for real.) asked me what she should do to her hair as she started untwisting. She asked if we should just let it out and I was like YESSSS. Haha! And as we can see, Kai was so stunning. Her smash was a ton of fun too. I let her blow raspberries and be messy and she even licked icing off her foot! My kinda girl! You do what you have to do to get all that icing.
