Cooper's Baseball Cake Smash

April 18, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Cooper's Baseball Cake Smash

When little Cooper's mom contacted me to schedule a baseball themed Cake Smash, my brain started spinning with so many fun ideas for the setup. Dad agreed to bring some of his baseball items from home including the batting hat we ended up using. I managed to find a mini baseball bat, just his size, at the local thrift store along with some mitts and weathered baseballs.  I made the banner out of more vintage style baseball stripes and colors and Mom ordered a cake from A-Frame Bakery in Williamstown, Ma that was the perfect baseball cake for the occasion! 

Cooper was hesitant at first but eventually got into it. Jury's still out on if he liked the taste of it or not, but he seemed overall happy. And no tears! Oftentimes babies have no idea what to do during a Cake Smash and cry, which is a totally normal reaction to this new situation. Cooper was very chill and just rolled with the punches.


And I'm so excited to now be offering Splash Sessions following the Cake Smashes!!! I found this awesome tub at one of my favorite local antique shops (Seiferts if anyone's interested) in nearby Hoosic Falls. It was perfect for a quick little scrub after getting all sticky with frosting beforehand. And Cooper really seemed to enjoy himself! Even splashing and giggling! What a cutie!!!

It was so great meeting this lovely family and photographing them to mark this milestone. I hope I get the chance to photograph them again in the future!

One Year Old Michael

April 07, 2017  •  Leave a Comment


Michael was recently in the studio to celebrate his first birthday with balloons and photos!

Initially, he did not want to leave Mom's side.

But we managed to coax some smiles and giggles out of him by the end. And boy were they cute!

Big brother Daniel even got in on some of the shots. I'm sure Michael felt better with his brother nearby to make him smile.

Such a sweet family. It's always a pleasure to photograph them! Can't wait till next time!


Spring Baby Mini Sessions: Collin

March 29, 2017  •  2 Comments

Spring Baby Sessions:


Collin's mom answered my Model Call with a few cell phone photos of her son and the minute I saw those big baby blues, I knew I wanted to photograph him in my Spring Baby Session setup! 

He looks absolutely perfect in the hat I found for him. What do you think?

And this one too:

Kid can rock a hat! 

After an outfit change and a bit more time to get used to the studio, he brought out all the smiles!

Even when he wasn't smiling he was adorable.

Baby in a bucket, because well, why not?

Then Mom had the excellent idea to turn over the metal bucket so he could drum it! He seemed to really like that. Plus, what little kid doesn't like to make music?

Then eventually, he sat on it. 

Collin and his mom were such a joy to have in the studio! I just wanted to squeeze all that adorable baby squish he had! Plus he was just sweet as can be! Thank you again Brandy for bringing him in!!

Spring Baby Sessions:: Eleanor

March 21, 2017  •  1 Comment

Spring Baby Sessions:


Was so pleased to see this little lady again! I photographed her as a newborn and now, seven months later, she's back and full of smiles and loads of personality!

Isn't she just the cutest??

She came in to the studio in the cutest outfit that highlighted her big blue eyes. After a few shots in that, we switched to the outfit I'd purchased for just this occasion. I think she can probably rock any color she puts on but pinks and blues always look so nice with strawberry blonde hair (I should know! lol)

Since it's Spring time, my studio is currently filled with lots of flowers. They paired perfectly with Eleanor. She's quite the little flower herself.

We got some beautiful photos of her while she was here, perfect for promos for my upcoming Spring Baby Sessions (coming April 1st). If you're interested in booking one of the Spring Baby 20 min portrait sessions, you can get more info and can reserve your spot here.

Sawyer's First Year

March 08, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Sawyer's First Year

I first met Sawyer when he was still in mom's belly over a year ago. She contacted me needing maternity photos a.s.a.p. (check out the blog post here). Then I had the privilege of photographing him as a newborn. 

Those big blue eyes had me hooked. I couldn't wait to photograph him again! 

It was obvious his parents were hooked too. They were and still are so head over heels for this little guy.

They booked Milestone Sessions for him for his first year and I couldn't believe how much he'd already grown when he was in for his three month photo shoot.

Just look at that smile!!!

Ahhh!! It's cuteness overload!!!! Even his little stink face is adorable!

When he came back for his six month photos, he was even cuter, if that's at all possible. All smiles and the most adorable giggles.

It was near the holidays when he returned for his nine month session so we incorporated a bit of holiday cheer into some of his photos. He makes an adorable little elf.

Still cute as ever in his regular attire too. Then we had to put him in a bowl, 'cause babies in bowls are just adorable.

And then just last week, he was in for his twelve month session. The last one. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a tad bit sad to be at the end of his photo sessions. Hoping I'll get to see him again soon for family photos in the Fall. 

They grow up just too fast. 

Thank you to Sawyer's family for the honor of photographing his first year! It's been a pleasure!
