Penelope turns ONE! | Cake Smash

Our sweet little Penelope turns one TODAY!  I can’t believe it’s been a full year that we’ve had Pen in our lives.  We wouldn’t trade anything for all the smiles, giggles, hugs, and tears we’ve all had this year with her. I’ll at some point come share some of my favorite images from her newborn session & other times I’ve busted out the real camera to take photos this year.  She’s made our family complete and I could go on and on, but we’ve got a party to get ready for!!  So here are some favorites from her cake smash session we shot last week.

Sweet E+A | Newborn Session

I got to snuggle these adorable twins a few weeks ago.  They were absolutely a dream to photograph and slept amazingly once I got them to sleep (E was more interested in keeping an eye on me at first, but once she was snuggled with her sister she went right to sleep).  Being a twin myself it was extra special to get to photograph and snuggle this sweet pair of twisters (twin+sister).  Sending lots of love, snuggles & laughs to them & their wonderful family!!

I loved that their Mom dug it out of storage for their photos, such a perfect touch.E+A_Newborn_0001 E+A_Newborn_0011 E+A_Newborn_0013E+A_Newborn_0006E+A_Newborn_0002

Carmela+Evan | Cake Smash Session

A few weeks ago I spent some time with these two sweeties who just turned one!  Their mama’s planned a lovely cake smash session at Erin’s house.  Carmela and Evan’s moms are friends and they are already planning the wedding for these two born only days apart.  Cake smash sessions are always so much fun to shoot because you never know how the kids are going to react.  Enjoy some favorites from this session!
