the sweetest peach

Obviously I love what I do, and I'll be honest, I love all my clients like family.. but when I actually get to shoot for one of my inner circle the feelings that I have are just pride and the feeling of being honored to be a part of their lives. This baby is the niece of my sweetest guys, they own the salon that I get my hair done in., check it out its called Shear Rituals and they are both Amazing at what they do! Okay sorry, not sorry that was a shameless plug for my besties..

So getting back to this session, this little peach is turning one, and I'm telling you that she is the sweetest baby. She didn't get upset at the numerous outfit changes or even after we hosed her down after the smash cake, she truly is a little treasure. Capturing this time is probably one of my favorite things to shoot, babies in general are so precious but there is something really cool about this age, its like they are on the cusp of development, they are full of wonder and still so delicate, they will never be this way again, because they change every day. So moral of the story, capture everything, and hold on, take time to smell the flowers and eat cake face first. Enjoy every little piece, and remember to smile. love love love you guys!


Oh and just a little side note, this was probably the best smash cake I have ever seen, not only was it gorgeous, but Jeremy Patterson (cakesbyjeremy@ | insta: cakesbyjeremy ) made this cake with a baby in mind, it wasn't full of sugar, it was perfect, we didn't feel bad about letting her eat it! So make sure you look him up for all your cake needs.

Last week I took a little drive and met up with one of my favorite families to shoot some updated pics of miss S, every time I see this little sweet babe she's changed so much, and this time was no different. Besides being a gorgeous family they are so fun! I always look forward to spending time with them, and this time we shot at her families home with was covered in bougainvillea, it reminded me of being in Satorini greece a few years ago, and makes for some pretty beautiful shots! Hope you all enjoy, until next time!




Sweet face

For those of you who grew up in Bradenton, know how it is to still see the people that you went to school with, but for those of you who are blessed are able to still call them friends you'll understand when I say that it is so special to see them grow up, get married, and have babies.. this little sweet face belongs to my best friend, who I have been friends with since Middle school. I love her and I love her babies.. and honestly who couldn't with a face like this!
