Birthday Bash, Part 1 – Cake Smash

I had made some changes to my business offerings a few months ago. Added more digital sessions, simplified session options and so on. I am really happy with how everything is working. This little guy’s mommy took advantage of some of these new session options and scheduled two separate sessions. The first, shown here is part one: the cake smash.

Because this session is only for cake smashing, I had more time to get creative with a colorful set. I create banners, buy balloons and everything else to design a set that goes with your birthday theme. This time, mom had also contributed with two birthday banners of her own. The Happy 1st Birthday banner is from The Party Paper Fairy and the fabric banner with Mickey and the number 1 is from Pippa Stitch Shop. The cake she brought it was perfect too. I provide a list of local bakers for clients to check out for their cake needs. It just so happened that mom unknowingly chose one that was on my list. Big shout out to Ashley’s Sweet Treats here in Oak Harbor, WA for the great cake! With all that, I just coordinated my banners & other props with those and this is what we got. I LOVE IT!

Little B was shy at first, which is pretty normal. He was checking out the place, checking out all the colors and of course, watching me. We kept him busy with hats, balloons and confetti. He went from unsure to just being himself, walking and being silly. He was not too sure about the cake. At first, he looked like he was afraid of it. But as mom dug in a little to help him get to the cake, he began to enjoy it. Probably enjoyed poking at it more than anything, but he did eat some. Altogether, it was a success! Yay!

Welcome Baby M – Newborn Session

Baby M was 12 days old when he came in to make his portrait debut. He was very sleepy, very calm and fun of smiles. Just like my previous newborn, he too was a grunter. Letting us know that he knew we were there. It was so cute to hear him. We began with a few image of him in a cute onesie that was an ode to his Grandpa (seen in the 2nd photo). We then got him wrapped up for some individual photos and some with mom. Then we started to unwrap him for more individual photos and some with dad. There were a few requests for particular looks/poses and this little guy was happy to oblige.

Early Christmas Pictures – Family (Sisters) Session

Every year, these girls come visit my in October to get their annual portraits done. We usually do them in the studio but this year we went for something outside. We headed to a farm on the south end of Whidbey Island after watching the weather and waiting for day without rain. Although mom didn’t really ask for a Christmas-themed set, she was gracious to let me give it a try so I could get some samples for mini sessions coming up.

With the chill in the air and the wet grass, the girls were great. We did have a few moments of needing a break and recomposing, but considering all the factors, I was so happy with it all.
