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”
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)”
Little Ella showed up for her session a little sleepy, but somehow it still only took about 2 minutes before she was showing off those beautiful smile and her amazing walking skills! The latter of course meant that both myself and her parents spent that majority of the session catching her and putting her back in front of the background, but hey, that’s what cake smash sessions are all about!Continue reading “Ottawa First Year Milestone + Cake Smash Session: Ella”
I started shooting family session about a year after I started weddings, and honestly, I have loved every minute of it! Not only do I get to work with some of the best families and most hilarious kiddos, but I get to see our couples and families as they start and grow their families over the years! It really is such a treat to be able to watch these tiny babes grow into super fun kids full of spunk and personality! So with that all said, I think it is only fitting to wrap-up the 2020 year that was filled with so many wonderful family sessions!Continue reading “2020 Favourites: Families + Newborns”
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”
