Cake Smash – Quinn

Y’all, I am soooo glad I got to photograph Quinn’s cake smash in Houston!! This girl is entirely too cute (as you can tell by the fact that I “narrowed” down her photos to about 1,023 for this blog post)!! Getting to see the rest of her sweet family, including big brother Wyatt (who happens to be a cake smash pro), & her mama – one of my all-time favorite people made me so happy!

From the sweet little gold sparkle and light pink tulle on her dress down to her perfectly pink little toenails, Quinn was ready for this! She has the funniest little facial expressions, with the best ones being reserved for her big brother and the cat haha. And her cake-eating style? I’m toooootally ok with it.

I always love to watch the beginning of a cake smash when the little one just really has no idea what in the heck is going on, and then looking around with the disbelief that they’re actually allowed to just dig in and make an incredible mess if they want to!

And here’s that cake-eating style I mentioned. See? Most definitely my kind of girl.

Quinn, happy birthday little girl!!! You are just too sweet and I am so thankful that I’ve been able to help get images for you to be able to look back on as you grow up and see just how much you were loved from the very beginning. Enjoy your party & hopefully you get some more cake!

Cake Smash – Caleb

This past Saturday I got to hang out with one of my favorite little guys (and his parents) again, and it was too much fun!  For the last session of our Little Ones package, Lauren, Zach & Caleb made the trip to Nacogdoches. I loved getting to have them over to the house to share some breakfast before letting Caleb dig into some cake!

Poor Caleb wasn’t feeling the best – darn teething – but he was still just as sweet as ever and did so so good.

I know the whole point of a cake smash session is to just straight up destroy the cake, but part of me was a little sad about it… I mean, how adorable is this cake by Treat Me Sweet Cupcakes?!?!?

As adorable as the cake is, it’s got NOTHING on this little man! What a cutie!

Getting this series was too funny… toddler attention spans aren’t the longest & by the time we got to “E” Caleb was about ready to move on to the cake!

Time for cake!

This one just absolutely cracks me up… you never know how little ones will react to the feeling of the frosting, and Caleb’s reaction was priceless!

Love this one!

At this point, I’ve decided that if I do a cake smash session & there’s no frosting in between their toes, we probably haven’t done it right!

Happy 1st birthday, Caleb!! It has truly been a joy to get to photograph your first year, and I’ve LOVED getting to see your parents so often too! I wish you nothing but the best as you grow up, and I hope that you keep your joyous spirit & that sparkle in your big brown eyes.

Cake Smash – Wyatt

I made the trip down to Houston to spend a morning with a very handsome soon-to-be 1 year old… and loved every humid minute of it!! The rain held off just until I got in the car to head back home, and even with the humidity, this little boy and his parents were like pros! We started out with a (very) quick family session, then it was on to the real fun with cake smashing and bubble-bathing. Another plus to an already great session? Wyatt’s mama is a good friend of mine from back in my Texas Tech days. It’s always waaaaay too long in between times that we get to hang out, but when we do it’s just like no time at all has passed. Friends like that are such a blessing.

Ok… so there’s going to be a ton of photos today, so I’m just going to get right to it! Such a good-looking family!!

And it’s obvious that this guy loves his Grandpa! Wyatt in that hat? Precious. Wyatt-28_WEB

Before we left the park to head back to the house for cake-time, of course we had to jump on the swings for a little bit!!

So not only did Wyatt get to dive into some cake, he got balloons too!  Wyatt-45_WEB

Time for the cake!!!!

I absolutely love when little ones aren’t quite sure about the cake at first. Confused eyebrows, some hesitation, and a few looks at mom & dad to make sure it’s ok to really go after it. Too cute.

Wyatt? He’s got the confused eyebrows down for sure.  Wyatt-69_WEB

No more hesitation… game on!!!

It was too cute how Wyatt ate his cake… sure, he grabbed some handfuls (who wouldn’t?!?), but for the most part, he just used one finger and seemed to just keep digging deeper into the same part of the cake. Hadn’t seen that particular strategy yet! Cracked me up.

Wyatt-178_WEBI hope you’re all still conscious after that overdose of cuteness! I could seriously photograph this kid all. the. time.

Jess & Jason, THANK YOU for letting me be a little part of this milestone in Wyatt’s life and in your family’s life. He is a sweetheart, and I know he’s going to be a little heartbreaker in a few years! I hope there’s lots more swings, bubble baths and cake in your future. Love y’all!
