I give it up to my families for dealing with the hot summer heat with me!! The Parenica family are always so sweet and it was great to catch up with them and to see baby Sydney for her 1 yr session! I did her newborn session and saw them last fall so it was wonderful to see how big Sydney is now! Sister Cam is so sweet with her it was so cute to watch her help baby sis with her cake smash!

It couldn’t have been more of a perfect summer evening for Lauren’s maternity session! Although the summer heat is still lingering, she looked stunning with her ivory and gold gown!! Little miss Stella loved exploring the location by the Salt River she would have rather played with the sticks and look at the water then want to take photos but we still got lots of adorable pics for mom! What’s even more amazing is that during a shoot we ran into a herd of wild horses (see bottom photo) they were so striking and beautiful I had to capture them! And of course since its summer and its sweltering, I had to make Lauren get in the river for a couple shots to show off her adorable belly!

I am so happy for the Hamby family, not too long after this shoot Laurn gave birth to handsome Emmett so I am glad we got to do her maternity session when we did!

Time just goes by soo fast! I remember Shay calling me just a couple weeks before she was going to have Piper wanting to squeeze in a maternity shoot. I always enjoy seeing this family and little Piper!! She just turned 1 yr old over the weekend and was excited to edit her session!! You can’t go wrong with a tutu, cake, and a pony. YES a pony!! My amazing mother in law, owner of Jubilee Pony Parties was dying to get one of her ponies in on a cake smash of mine and it couldn’t get been more perfect! Even Piper let Cherry the pony in on some of her cake!!

Sweet little Henlie was nothing short of pink and gold bows, frills, and glitter. All of those elements come together for the perfect cake smash! She has so much personality and was so fun to photograph! She really distroyed her first cake and didn’t leave much behind! She even thought she would give the cake stand a try! I really enjoyed this cake smash with her! She set the bar pretty high for all 1 yr olds out there!

Little Savannah was such a doll!! She has the biggest smile and such a little ham! She totally had a ball playing around on my vintage suitcase but when it was time to bring out the cake she wasn’t the hugest fan! I am so glad I did get some happy pics of her playing with it and even some shots of her putting it in her hair! Who knows maybe icing its good for moistureizing lol!
