PRESENTING | Look Who’s Turning 1

She’s not a tiny little newborn anymore…wow how time flies.  Just 12 short months ago I got this shot which immediately became the front of my newborn session business cards and remains one of my favorite images to this day.  [See more from Penny’s Newborn Session] As you’ll see in the not 1, not 2, but 3 storyboards below, that cover the pre and post aspects of a cake shoot along with the mess in between, she has gotten sweeter and sweeter with each passing day and still delivers shot after show stopping shot with her angelic, expressive, and precious little face…and personality!  

After convincing me they really really would not have any use for the tin tub that they’d just purchased the day before to use in this shoot they let me pack it into my trunk and bring it home to join my prop collection!!  So book your tub shoots now!!  Can’t wait!


PRESENTING | Caleb’s Cake Shoot

Another one of my favorite type of shoots…the Cake Shoot! This one was a little bit different though as it was my first Cake shoot with a boy and I think I learned something. Boys are different than girls, where cakes are concerned, and perhaps in other ways as well. 🙂  In the past cake shoots I’ve done with girls you can usually see on their faces that they’re a little unsure about whats going on. Then when they figure out they get to eat the whole cake, they do so very calmly and neatly. Whereas with Caleb it was a bit of a different story. Being so excited after his first taste he reached into the cake grabbing fistfuls more with both hands then with so much thrill he proceeded to just shake his hands and arms over and over flinging cake and frosting everywhere!! Off the backdrop onto the carpet, the walls, us, everywhere…as he just shrieked and giggled with sheer joy. It was awesome. I’m pretty sure it took just 2 minutes for what was once a beautiful birthday cake to exist solely as crumbs all over the room. It was a great time but nobody enjoyed it more than the birthday boy.

PRESENTING | Baby Browns Turns 1

You saw her leg warmer invitations and knew the day was coming but it has arrived. Now prepare for this sweet girls baby browns to melt ya! I wish we all could look so cute sitting in a diaper shoveling cake in our mouths by the handful. Can you imagine?!

Presenting | Saylie Bear Turns 1!

I can’t believe it’s been a year since I took this picture of my little Say Bear!

Last week we stuffed ourselves with fruity pebble treats, Cheddar Goldfish, mini PB&J sandwiches, and cupcakes galore celebrating my nieces 1st birthday in style. No 1st birthday party is complete without letting the birthday babe go hog wild on their own cake…am I right? So true to the birthday tradition we set her cake in front of her and let her have at it!
