Houston Family Photographer | Baby Cake Smash

Houston Family Photographer | Baby Cake Smash

There is truly not much I love more than a baby cake smash! When the mom contacted me she warned me: “he’s never had cake or icing in his life, will this still work?”. I asked her if he disliked getting messy or sticky, because that’s truly the indicator of whether a cake smash will be a success. If the baby isn’t into getting messy, the shoot will be a challenge. But, if they are cool with it, all they need is that one taste and then it turns into cake smash magic!

The Session

This session was simple but perfect. Because it was super hot outside, we decided to do it in my studio. The mom brought a white iced cake, dressed her son in rad Jimi Hendrix top. Being freshly one, he wasn’t so into his shoes, so those came off early! He also wasn’t 100% sure about the cake, but once he knew what was happening, he got in there! My favorite images of him are when he isn’t sure about what’s happening. That baby side-eye is everything!!

Christmas Minis 2017

What most people do for their Christmas pictures is go to an elaborate setup outdoors. I remember my first year doing this and all of us sweating and feeling uncomfortable. I literally had to wipe sweat off my brow as I was taking pictures, as the kids squirmed from the heat! We all know that in Houston you can never count on the temperature to drop in November.
 
I believe portraits are precious time capsules in your life. Thus, for 2017 I want to make it different. Sessions in a studio, my new studio! A white tufted couch, a Christmas tree, lots of laughter and your family captured as they are. I might have treats, who knows!! But what you can count on? No sweating, just great light and a relaxed atmosphere.

Mommy & Me Minis

These next two Mommy & Me minis were set in the morning. The very early morning! The sun was so much softer, a little less golden. The softness made for pictures that made me rethink whether I preferred evening sessions. Plus, it was nice and not crazy hot, which is a miracle in May in Houston.

The Shanks

I have been photographing these sweet twin girls since they born and in the ICU. I still remember when Eileen told me she was pregnant, she was so excited and happy. And these girls are two years old! From her Facebook posts, Eileen loves dressing up her girls all the time. So it should be no surprise that all three ladies were dressed up for their 7am session. Coffee in hand, Eileen didn’t only make this session work, she and her girls rocked it!

The Hecks

Let’s discuss how obsessed Wendy’s daughter is with bubbles! She accidentally stumbled upon them and then they were in her hands the rest of the session. I love how Wendy went with some of my more quirky ideas, like drinking coffee in some of the pictures. It’s these little things that show what motherhood is really like. Her daughter also turned two this year, and loves being read to. This session is basically all lambs and loveliness.

Mommy & Me

These mommy & me sessions have been nothing but gorgeous. And they are so simple! A lace teepee, flowers, a blanket. You add my amazing clients and the sun, and blow me over, these mommy & me sessions are stunning!!!

The Blanchards

The mom, Kat, is one of my coaches at the my crossfit box. She leads a life that is crazy busy, not only running a small business, she trains every day, has two children who do sports, among other things. For her it’s not about having a magical moment of time reveal itself as free for photos. Nope, this busy mom a few days before, was able to make the time for the session.

Fun story: Kat’s husband was there {and helped setup the teepee, thank you!!}. While we were doing pictures, he was hanging out in the shrubs to the side, found a perfectly good woman’s shoe and decided to go looking for anything else. He convinced us he had found a body {he didn’t}! So now we have this mystery: what woman left this brand new, beautiful show behind in the bushes??

As Christa and her family walked towards me I knew something amazing was a foot. They were dressed up. The energy was high and I knew we were about to have an epic session! I freaking love this family because they are incredibly comfortable together and in front of the camera. Needless to say we got a ton of great images and laughed the entire time.

Part 2 of the Christmas mini’s! I distinctly remember the twins bounding down the lane, as Eileen carefully followed in her high heeled boots. Thankfully she had her husband and son {who is almost a teenager!} following the twins. I remember giggling at their perfect outfits, one saying “Naughty” the other “Nice”. It was even cuter in person.

They enjoyed the hot chocolate and cookies, but more so, they loved playing and picking up tons of rocks. As I took pictures of Eileen and Blake, I had to do so strategically as the twins would roam into the shots. We had a great time!
