Anchorage Cake Smash Photographer |"S" Cake Smash

How cute is the setup for this little cake smash? Fun fact about this little girl; I did her mom's maternity session while she was pregnant with her and their sessions are always some of my favorites. 

Baby girl started out a little timid about wanting to get into the cake (check out that one finger move!), but by the end of it, she was as covered in cake as everyone else is. 

Big thank you to Lesley's Cakes, LLC for the super cute piggy smash cake!

Anchorage Cake Smash Photographer | "K" Cake Smash

As a child of two scientists, I'm in love with the theme of this session. I've had some super out of the box themes for cake smashes lately, and I LOVE the opportunity to get creative and come up with ideas.

When mom told me her theme was science, I immediately started ordering beakers and test tubes, goggles, and a little lab coat for little man to wear. I love the way this turned out! We used Jello in the beakers so that if they got tipped over, we wouldn't have water all over to cut our session short. 

When everyone came in for their session, little man was shy. You'll see in the pictures, he was nervous and kept wandering his way back over to mom, but he REALLY wanted to eat his cake. At one point, you'll see in the pictures, he tried to pick up the cake to bring it over to eat with mom, but it didn't go to plan. ;) By the end of the session, he was ALL OVER that cake and even discovered that Jello is amazing. Such a fun session!

Anchorage Newborn Photographer | "G" 6 Months!

I love newborn photography. But I might love 6 month sitter sessions more. I started including a sitter milestone session with all my full newborn session packages, and I'm so glad I did! I love seeing my little friends as they come back in for their sessions. 

I got to do this sweet girl's newborn session when she was brand new, and she's so gorgeous! She was sleepy for her newborn session, smiley for her sitter session. Love it!

Anchorage Cake Smash Photographer | "Q" Cake Smash!

I love Alaska. I was born and raised here, so that's probably not a secret. Because we live in such a unique state, I get a lot of requests for Alaskan themed shoots. This one, while not specifically Alaskan, can certainly pass as an Alaska theme. This is a lumberjack themed cake smash!

I got to do little man's newborn photos, so I'm always so happy when parents bring their newborns to me 12 months later to do their 1 year milestone photos, whether its a cake smash session or not. I love seeing how they've grown and getting to see their little personalities. This little lumberjack was so smiley and so happy to share his cake with their family dog. So sweet!

Mom requested this awesome pancake smash cake and I am in love with this cake. If you're looking for a baker in the area, check out Sweet Cups Catering AK, she's my go to for everything!

Eagle River Child Photographer | "F" Cousin Session

I'm in love with this session. I was contacted by this client to do a cousin's session while her sister was in town with her two little girls from Texas. Such an awesome idea. As a person who grew up very close to her cousins, I would love to have something like this to look back on as an adult.

How cute are all these kids? And their outfits were so well coordinated, and they were all AMAZINGLY well behaved. One of the moms was a fellow photographer, so I barely had to direct anyone, she knew how to get their attention, helped me with posing, etc, this session was a breeze. I have to admit, I'm always a little nervous shooting in front of other photographers, but I loved this. The first mom is a previous client from a newborn shoot, and little man in blue in these pictures was one of my newborns almost a year ago. What a doll!

Before the session, I was asked if I had a bench that all 5 kids could sit on for the session, and I realized that even though I feel like I have every prop under the sun, I did not have a bench big enough to fit 5 kiddos. So I looked around and realized the perfect bench sits right in my studio. So with the help of my awesome clients, we dragged the bench out to the middle of the park, and we may have gotten a few funny looks, but the photos turned out awesome! So now my studio bench will for sure be a prop I'll be using outside more often.

 This sweet big cousin asked for this picture with his gorgeous little cousin. I melted at the request!

 Let's talk about this picture real quick. This was a request by the big kid cousins right at the end, and they really wanted a jumping picture. However, after many attempts (and a lot of laughing), we realized what we were just not going to be able to get everyone off the ground at the same time. So with the help of a little Photoshop magic, we were able to get the picture that the cousins really wanted. :)
