Cake smash!

Is there anything more fun than watching a one-year-old completely destroy a birthday cake? I mean, sure, I guess there might be, but this is definitely at the top of my list. Cake smash sessions are among my favorite types of photography (right after newborns, because NEWBORNS!), so I was thrilled when Hayley asked me to document this great first-birthday session for Little Ernie. Momma Hayley is throwing him a Dr. Seuss-themed birthday party, so that was the theme for the session.


Holiday Mini Session

Recently I did a holiday mini session for Hayley, her husband Ernie and her son Little Ernie. We focused on the little guy for most of the session, and you’ll totally know why once you see these pictures. He’s just too stinking cute! It was unseasonably warm outside, so we headed out right before sunset and caught some amazing lighting for the family photos, complete with Dean Martin the Labradoodle. Here are some of my favorites from the session:

Fall Family Session

I’m not one of those folks who geeks out every year when fall rolls around. Sure, I like hot cider and pretty leaves, but I’m a summer gal through and through. That being said, there’s one thing about fall that gets me every time: the photo opportunities. So I was thrilled when Natalie asked me to take photos of her beautiful family. Her husband, John, had to leave early, but Natalie and littleĀ Cece stuck around for some adorable toddler and mommy-and-me photos.
