Donut First Birthday | Walker Donut Smash

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE a good cake smash. But donuts are LIFE!! Donuts are some of my favorite treats and when Walker’s mom told me she wanted to do a donut smash instead of cake for his 1st birthday I was all over it! Walker has always been the sweetest and expressive little guy and didn’t disappoint for his one year photoshoot. The donuts were made by the talented Amour de Sucre!

Walker really loved his photos and it showed when it was time to smash them! He loved eating them, stacking them then throwing them! He really made us proud from a smashing stand point and loved the whole look for his first birthday session! It is great to think out side the box and photograph a first birthday in another way other than cake!

Mini Newborn Photographer Phoenix | Baby Parker Mini Session

Several months ago I started seeing a trend in inquires. These were clients that were asking if I had any smaller packages for newborn photography. At the time I only had the 1 package as a full session and 30 digitals. As the more I thought about it I thought it would be a perfect idea to offer a smaller and simpler package for clients still wanting high quality images from a seasoned photographer.  As a new parent or a parent who is on baby #5, finding a newborn photographer is hard. Someone thats close, you relate with, has experience, you like their style and what they offer is all key things. I would hate to turn a client away that loved my work but wouldn’t compete with my price point. Offering Newborn Mini’s was now a no brainer.

A Newborn Mini Session is perfect for so many reasons, its a win-win for everyone. You are still able to capture all the newness of your precious baby, getting a experienced photographer, a good amount of images and its a quick session! The mini session is done wrapped only mainly because it helps the time of the session go quickly. The diaper is kept on and mom still arrives with baby tired and a full belly by feeding him/her upon arrival. There are 5-6 sets that are done with baby and the wraps are kept on but varied the entire time. There are so many different looks and feels you and still achieve with the baby wrapped and usually this keeps baby sound asleep and can knock out a newborn mini in 45min – 1 hour.

Baby Parker was no exception. He was sound asleep and I wrapped him in a tight swaddle and I didn’t see his eyes open once! We used different wraps, hats, furs and buckets for his session and even got festive with a little pumpkin set since he is a fall baby. Mom loved all the images and so did I! I am so happy to now be offering these packages and I think my clients are to!!

Newborn Photography Phoenix | Baby Wells

 

 

Baby Wells was the sweetest little boy!! The Holemon family finally got their baby boy after have 2 little girls. Sisters Emma and Abby are so smitten with their baby brother. Andrew Wellington (Wells) Jr. was so perfect for his newborn session in Phoenix. Mom wanted to corporate some blues and grays along with a few specific shots that are special to their family. This family are HUGE Alabama fans and have a photo of each one of their girls with this Alabama Roll Tide sign. The tiny football fit seamlessly into his little fingers! Pslam 139 : 14 is also a special verse just for Wells as mama has canvases hung in their home of all their children with a specific verse so it was amazing to recreate this image for them! Baby Wells is so loved in this family of 5 and so happy daddy finally got his boy!

Phoenix Baby Photographer | Kaila 6 months

 

Kaila came to see me again for her 6 months session! Last time I saw her was at her 3 months session and she has grown so much! Her mom envisioned a little milk bath session with florals for her sitter session. I had just got this new darling baby claw foot tub and knew it would be perfect for her. We added some florals to it and it was perfect for her. The only problem was Kaila wanted to keep eating the flowers! We literally couldn’t get her to stop sucking on the stems lol! It was beyond cute and made for a cute memory her mom will always remember!

Mom brought a beautiful floral crown from Baileys Blossoms and it looks so sweet on her! We added the bubbles as a fun touch to the milk bath and Kaila loved those too. Adding a milk bath session to any 6 months or 1 year session is so wonderful to do and is perfect for those little girls!

Cinderella Theme Cake Smash | Makenna 1 year old

Sweet Makenna just turned 1 year old! It’s amazing how fast time flies! If you remember Makenna’s newborn session, you can check it out here. This sweet little girl is my neighbor’s daughter, so I have been lucky enough to watch her grow up close to me. When her mom told me she wanted to do a Cinderella Theme Cake Smash I was beyond excited! Cinderella is one of my favorite Disney movies of all time!! We had so much fun with all the decorations and outfits. Makenna definetly looks good in blues!

We did some adorable shots in the new refinished rocking horse I had made then got into her cake. She was a little apprehensive as first and needed some encouragement but she did eventually start to play with it. After she made a decent dent into her cake we brought out the bath tub for some super cute bath up photos with Mr. Squeak and some bubbles!

Photographing cake smashes are probably my favorite along with newborn sessions. If you are in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area and looking to book a cake smash session, I am now taking bookings for 2018 so its never too soon to book your child’s 1 year session!
