Simple Fun Woodland Themed Cake Smash Pictures Hendersonville NC

One of my favorite thing is making cake smash dreams come true so I was delighted when Simone asked me to create a Simple Fun Woodland Themed Cake Smash Pictures Hendersonville NC for her son Brennex! It includes a big brother named Keegan, Mom and Dad, a really spectacular cake, and lots of silliness coupled with snuggles.  Come along for the fun with me!

Family Images

I always snap a few pictures of the whole family at any cake smash session and the one below is clearly a favorite! I’m pretty sure I was making either elephant or rooster noises to charm Keegan.  Like most preschoolers, he wasn’t interested in the session unless he was the center of attention.  But with a kiddo this cute, it was easy to make Keegan feel like he was the center of attention! Simple Timeless Classic Family Studio Pictures Greenville SCI love the timeless colors the Simone chose and the cute romper she borrowed from my wardrobe for Brennex.  Providing some options for the whole family to wear in the studio is one of the joys of helping your session be stress free.

It’s so rare that we get to be in front of the lens with our kids and it’s always so beautiful for our children to really see how much they are loved by us.Simple Timeless Classic Family Studio Pictures Simpsonville SC

Once we finished family images it was time for Brennex to smash cake.  This lovely cake was a special commission from Christine of Baking Sweet Scents.  A simple semi-naked cake is provided and decorated for all cake smash clients, but clients are welcome to customize the cake for an an additional fee.  This cake turned out just as Simone requested and I love it!  Clearly so did Brennex. 🙂

The Bubble Bath

I like to finish all Cake Smash sessions with a bubble bath.  It’s a simple way for you to clean off your baby, gives us a few more images, and if your baby wasn’t into the cake usually the love the bath!  Brennex loved his so much!

Fresh Timeless Emotional Cake Smash Photography Simpsonville SC

Are you tired of over done cake smashes and loving for a more Fresh Timeless Emotional Cake Smash Photography Simpsonville SC look? I love a pretty set (as you can see below), but for me photography is really about capturing the essence and personality of a person as they are right in that moment. Nowhere is this emotional side of my photographer more visible than in a cake smash. One year olds FEEL it all… and I shoot it all! Because I know, you’ll want to remember it all someday soon.

Reagan was feeling all kinds of ways about her cake above. And as I scan through all of those photos I took experience all of her emotions. I laugh at Reagan’s disgust at the texture of frosting. Then, I smile over her surprised look at the taste of frosting. I celebrate her joy at actually eating this cake. It’s just a treat for my feelings. This is what a good day looks like. And this is what I want to capture, not perfectly posed moments with sets so stunning I can hardly find your baby.

So what’s included in a cake smash session with me?

First, time! A typical cake smash takes 60-90 minutes. I don’t try to rush your little one, regardless of whether they need extra snuggles or extra time to explore their cake.

Simple Studio Baby Mini Photo Session Greer SC

Sometimes you just need a few pictures of your little one in Simple Studio Baby Mini Photo Session Greer SC. You don’t need anything fancy.  You just want a few images to capture your baby’s chunky thighs. Or maybe it’s their new smiles.  Or maybe it’s sitting up or crawling.  And for some reason, your cell phone just isn’t doing the job you wanted.  These are great reason to book a Milestone Mini Session.

Simple Studio Baby Mini Photo Session Greer SC

Annette’s primary reason for booking this session for Andrew at precisely five month old was to recreate similar images to the ones she had of her daughters at the same age.  I love this idea!

At five months, Andrew hadn’t yet reached his sitting milestone, but he LOVED being on his tummy.  So we focused the first part of our mini session on this milestone. Isn’t he the absolute sweetest in this hat that his daddy picked out for him?

Simple Studio Baby Mini Photo Session Travelers Rest SCSwoon! I love a baby in a hat.  Add on the suspenders and I’m completely bowled over with cuteness.

And then we did the images of Andrew to match his sisters’s five month images.  A simple set up on a pillow to show your baby in all their cuteness.  This isn’t my idea, but I love it nonetheless.

This thinker pose was all Andrew. I laughed so hard I had to put my camera down.  It’s always amazing to me that even tiny humans are filled with tons of personality.

Finally, I finished the session with some images of Annette and Andrew.  Annette confided in me that it was her birthday!  So I had to document their love for each other!  Happy birthday, Annette!

Little girl in Mommy’s Wedding Dress Pictures in Greenville SC

Is their anything sweet than a Little girl in Mommy’s Wedding Dress Pictures in Greenville SC? This is my third session with sweet AnnaDavis and it was her Father’s Day present for her dad. Isn’t that the best idea to surprise your daddy with? He loved it so much. I’m sure he even got a little teary.Little girl in Mommy's Wedding Dress Pictures in Greenville SCAnnaDavis actually requested a session with me and the wearing of “mommy’s pretty wedding dress” was her idea.  We’d done similar images several years ago.  I was completely flattered that she remembered the experience.  But then again, what girl doesn’t love a good pampering?!

AnnaDavis loves a good pampering!  So we had so much fun pinning this dress to fit and spreading it out.  I love how she felt like a princess.

Of course we didn’t only do wedding dress pictures. AnnaDavis brought her favorite dress for some more traditional portraits.

Greer SC Child Studio Photography

I love the splash of color her perfectly manicured toes supply in this image. I know AnnaDavis enjoyed that pampering to the fullest.

Greenville SC Child Studio PhotographyThis is probably my favorite image from the whole session. There’s nothing more beautiful that little girls twirling in sheer joy.  Add in AnnaDavis’s perfectly pointed toes and it’s just the sweetest.

And then there was the dress for AnnaDavis’s personality!  How precious!

But I realized I just lied to you above.  The twirling image may be my favorite image for showing the beautiful innocence of girlhood. However, AnnaDavis conned her mama into being in the picture with her. “It’s kind of boring doing all this by myself. I want someone to be in this with me.” I love convincing mama’s to be in the images.  Their children think they are stunning, strong, brave, and loving.  They want to see in images how much they are loved by their mothers.  So maybe this is my favorite image after all.
