Welcome Friends!

I’m your resident portrait photographer, unapologetic tomboy, unabashed reality TV lover (the cheesier the better!) and memory-capturing sidekick. I’m here because I believe that everything happens for a reason.

Family Session with First Birthday Milestone | Cake Smash Photoshoot in Houston

I am so excited to share this adorable family and cake smash photoshoot from my studio near Houston! When this beautiful Mom reached out to book a session for their daughter’s first birthday milestone, we got to talking about family portraits too. Mom realized she really wanted a signature session so the whole family could be involved, so I got to work planning all of the details for her!

It was such a joy to have this family in the studio. Sometimes you just click with families and we ended up having the best time! These two big brothers were so photogenic and gave me the best smiles. I know from having two boys of my own that sometimes they aren’t as into the idea of having portraits taken as girls are, but these boys did amazing!

One of the things I love most about having the studio is giving families time to get comfortable with me in the space before their session begins. While Mom was pampered with professional hair and makeup, the boys and little miss played on the floor with me. I find that getting down to their level and connecting with kids when you arrive is so important to help the session run smoothly. This is especially important for one year olds!

Once baby girl was comfortable, we started with some sweet photos of her with Dad. When the boys joined them it made for some of my favorite images! We then transitioned to sibling portraits and added Mom after she was ready.

Next, it was the birthday girl’s big moment… the cake smash!

Cake Smash Photoshoot in Houston Studio

Before every cake smash session, I send my clients a list of ways to prepare your one year old for their session. I always try to tell parents to embrace baby’s reaction to the cake and frosting. Some kids dig right in and others not so much, but its always entertaining!

This sweet baby girl did so good though! She wasted no time digging in. The boys were so sweet encouraging her throughout the cake smash. They even indulged in a little cake afterwards, too.

After their session Mom decided on a beautiful wall gallery design, be sure to scroll down to see!
