When we were planning this session Mariah + I were trying to come up with a location where we could do both Family photos and Little Milo’s cake smash photos all while not having either of her boys get too distracted by the surroundings. And I have come to realize that this is actually a pretty tricky task. Anything that would be fun for candid family photos later on in a session, would likely result in distraught kiddos before that point. Luckily though, they still had access to the unbelievably gorgeous private farm that we used for Milo’s newborn session last year.Continue reading “Almonte Farm Lifestyle First Year Portraits & Cake Smash Family Session: The Kealeys”
Ottawa First Year Milestone + Cake Smash Session: Alice (Alice in One-derland Theme)
How on earth has an entire year already passed since Baby Alice first came into the studio?! I mean, it literally feels like her newborn session was yesterday and somehow, she has already been promoted from Baby Alice to Little Alice because she is one year old and just joined me for her milestone and cake smash session!
I think that’s something I need to get used to with the studio being open for over two years now, just that babies don’t stay babies for long and they get so big so fast!Continue reading “Ottawa First Year Milestone + Cake Smash Session: Alice (Alice in One-derland Theme)”
Ottawa First Year Milestone + Cake Smash Session: Faris
I am sure I have said it before but, it ends up being 50/50 as to whether or not the birthday boys and girls who come into the studio to celebrate actually smash in their cakes. In fact, it’s so hit and miss that I sometimes think it’s a little odd to call it’s cake smash as it’s just as likely to be a cake ‘meh’. But Little Faris definitely knew what to do when his parents sat him down next to his cake as he got right into it without any hesitation or delay!Continue reading “Ottawa First Year Milestone + Cake Smash Session: Faris”
Ottawa Arboretum First Birthday Portraits + Cake Smash: Ella
The original plan was for Sweet Little Ella to have a cake smash outside in the Arboretum followed by a big family birthday party at home a couple weeks later. And although she did have a cake smash in the Arboretum, thanks to Covid, her birthday party was a quiet affair at home with Mom and Dad. But it was all still great fun, and hey, this way she got to smash multiple cakes and donut towers … well, she got to touch them all slightly and then get really upset about it – same thing right?!Continue reading “Ottawa Arboretum First Birthday Portraits + Cake Smash: Ella”
Happy Birthday Baby Girl
A year ago today, Dave and I became godparents to the sweetest little girl!
Evelyn is happy and cheery pretty much all of the time and it is next to impossible to not feel the same way when you are with her. She is definitely a little chatter box and when we spent last weekend with her and her brother I spent most of the weekend listening to her babble, helping her walk (a brand new skill she has) and clapping with her and she currently loves clapping.
Happy First Birthday Evelyn!!
