Scottsdale Cake Smash – Cotton Candy Cake Smash

As a Scottsdale Cake Smash Photographer, I get so many clients wanting so much themes sometimes I feel a a little burnt out and that I do the same theme over and over. I have my own list of themes that I have either seen or though about I always thought would be fun to do and could spark some creativity! When Jocelyn’s mom told me she wasn’t too sure on a idea for her daughters session, I knew this would be perfect for her!

Who doesn’t LOVE cotton candy?! It has always been a favorite sweet of mine ever since I was a kid! I knew this cake smash could be one of my favorites! I found lots of the decor for the set up from my local Micheals store then topped it off with a amazing cake from Lisa’s Sweets and Treats and a adorable hat from Little Blue Olive!

Jocelyn loved her cake even though there were a couple tears, needless to say its one of my favorite cake smashes to date!

Phoenix Cake Smash Photography | Kodi’s Cactus Cake Smash

Not every cake smash starts with a smile and laugh. Sometimes it takes them a few minutes for them to warm up to me and the environment. Or sometimes it just takes the site of cake to perk right up! Kodi was the cutest ever and came in for his cake smash. His mom was open to my ideas for his cake smash and thought a cactus cake smash would be perfect for him!! I have always wanted to do one since cactuses are all the rage right now. I totally scored this cactus backdrop from Amazon and knew the colors would photograph perfect!

Since we didn’t alot of smiles in the beginning of this session, he for sure made up for it with his cake! He was all over the cake and even made the effort to put as much in his mouth as possible! This is one of my favorite cake smashes to date and couldn’t wait to share!!

Scottsdale Cake Smash | Camden’s Cowboy Western Cake Smash


Ever since I started photographing cake smashes, I have always had a “bucket list” of themes I have wanted to photograph for cake smashes! A Western/Cowboy theme was always the top of my list, since I am a AZ Native and all. When Camden’s mommy told me they were thinking about doing that for his party I was so excited! His mom has always grown up riding horses so it fit perfectly with their family. I photographed Camden for his 6 months session, so I was so happy to see him again. He brought his killer smile and charm and loved the camera. He was just the happiest little boy and LOVED his cake. I really loved how the cake smash set turned out and so did his mom! We even had time for a little bubble bath afterward and Camden just loved those bubbles!!

Scottsdale Newborn Photographer | Baby Booker

If you have been following me for a long time you know that I’ve been busy with lots of sessions! From newborns, maternity, 1 yr olds, you name it! It’s soo hard for me to blog every session especially since there are so many I would love to share but can’t. If your not already, make sure to follow my Instagram page! Thats is where I do the most of my sharing of my sessions. From day-to-day things, behind the scenes and all these gorgeous babies!

Baby Booker was the best little boy. I don’t often get baby fever but he was pushing all the right buttons! He snuggled so easily into every pose and just was so fun to work with! He even had a short awake period and gave us the best expressions!! It was important to mom and dad to capture Booker with some of there UCF memorabilia so even though Booker made us work for it at the end, we got it and know mom and dad are going to just love it!!

Saguaro Lake Ranch Maternity | Lauren & Jake Maternity

It isn’t took often I get a couple that just blows me away in every sense. Lauren and Jake are some pretty amazing people and I am beyond lucky I got to work with them!! Lauren is a stunning first time mamma who is a sister of a good friend of mine. She is glowing from head to toe and looks oh so stunning as a expecting mama!! With the best team RiStyle Consulting whose mother made a custom white maternity gown, and them on site to make sure everything was perfect was a understatement. The dress was flawless and they made sure Lauren was too!! The dress was made for Lauren so it fit her to a tea and I couldn’t have imagined it more beautiful!  Camelback Flower Shop also made the prettiest floral crown for Lauren to match the dress and it was stunning!

With Lauren’s request we ventured back to Saguaro Lake Ranch for some jaw dropping views and gorgeous desert scenery. With Lauren and Jake moving back to Chicago were Jake plays baseball for the White Sox, they wanted something special to remember their home and to incorporate into their little boys nursery. This location couldn’t have been more perfect for them!! They were such troopers taking a little hike to get close to the mountain and it didn’t disappoint!! These two were just in their little world and were so cute with each other. The sunset was also killer so it made for the perfect backdrop!!

I am a little sad I wont get to do their baby boy Walker’s photos once he is here but I know I will get to photograph them again soon!!
