Felix | Smash Cake Session 🍰

Another little guy’s birthday! 🎂 Shooting weddings is a blast for me, but man, smash cake sessions are just as fun! 😍 The mess, the cake, the smiles, and the photos that come along with…it’s all priceless.

They only turn 1 once, right?! So why not let them make a mess! 🤪 My favorite is when I get the face of, “You are LETTING me make a mess of this cake right now? You’re not yelling at me?!” 😆

It’s so interesting to see how each 1 year old smashes their cake differently. Some just poke at it, some destroy it, while others have no desire to touch it. One tip I want to give parents is, don’t be upset if your child doesn’t touch their smash cake the way you imagined. They them be free! 🙃 No matter what, I will still get great photos! And in the end, that’s all that matters. 😉

I will never force children to do something that they don’t want to do. Now, encourage them and or bribe them? Oh yeah, ABSOLUTELY! 😂 Fruit snacks work wonders 😝

Felix you were a HAMBONE. From crazy sissy trying to get you to smile to crawling away from each photo, we got some great photos of you. Thank you for smiling, giggling, and being a great little model. 😍 I hope you continue to grow and always keep a smile on your face.

I love making connections before I shoot any engagement session, especially when I already know half of the couple! Dakota and I both work for the same company, Sunrise Cooperative in Ohio. I work in the marketing department and he in the energy department. His area of expertise deals with propane gas, fuel delivery, off […]


I’m so thrilled to show another beautiful fall engagement session! Look at those colors?! Every season is wonderful because even in good ‘ole Ohio, I can find the beauty in the simplest things. Someone once told me, “Oh, you call that art? We call that junk!” I literally laughed out loud! It’s amazing the difference […]
