Category Archives: Cake Smash

I love meeting new clients, especially when we have such a good time chatting before our session! Jamie’s mama, Akelah, and I gushed over our plans for Jamie’s cake smash session for over a month. She’s my kinda lady because we were sending emojis and gifs all over the place in our conversation. I love it! So I knew we were going to hit it off right away, and we definitely did! I introduced myself to Jamie and she quickly jumped into my arms! Instant BFFs! Not only did we giggle over me trying to eat her toes, but Jamie and I were jamming to Usher when we needed some inspiration. Because Usher is ALWAYS good for inspiration 😉 Although, as far as actually smashing her cake, she would rather have stayed clean and dry. One look at her icing covered hand and she was outta there! I promised her as she was getting cleaned up, that the next time we hung out for a family session later in the year, we could stay mess free (and of course, listen to more Usher!)

I hope you’re ready to smile a ton while you’re looking through these. My cheeks hurt already!

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

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.

Olivia was dressed to the nines for her portraits and I LOVED IT. I could NOT get over how adorably fancy this dress was. It had a train and she had 3 strands of pearls… it was so awesome. I feel like these pictures would look so awesome next to her wedding portraits one day. Ohhh the ‘time flies’ feels. Being fancy didn’t stop her from smashing her birthday cake though. She straight up destroyed that thing. High Five Olivia!
