Cake Smash Birthday Session | Benji
This sweet family is brand new to me! I LOVE meeting local families and could not adore this one more. They are all so gentle with Charlie who seems to roll with all the silliness and chaos. He is quite a good sitter at 9 months and rocked all of his new modeling poses!
Are you lucky enough to have a child that whines and complains about getting updated photos?
Are you frustrated at picking out adorable clothes they bitch about the entire car ride there?
Are you that parent that bribes their kids with a million treats and a unicorn if they just smile once?
Do you dread feeling defeated and scream/cry in the bathroom when it's over?
Well, you're not alone. And, you're never going to feel like this is a pleasant experience if it keeps trending this way.
I have come up with the ultimate experience and it's proving to be so E. A. S. Y!
Yes, PHOTOS THAT ARE EASY!!! REPEAT AFTER ME... MY KID WILL LOVE THIS SESSION.
OKAY, so here are the details.
You tell your kid they have to do photos for T E N (10) minutes.
They pick out whatever outfit THEY want.
You drive them to my studio with their favorite music on and NO THREATS OF BEHAVING OR SMILING NICE will be heard along the way.
They show up feeling zero pressure because you haven't put any on yourself or them.
They roll in.
I get them into doing my silly stuff and YOU yield a fist full (maybe two) of amazing photos that actually look like them!
To throw in a bonus, have your kids sit down with you when the gallery is live and let them pick their favorites. Sprinkle a few of these photos around the house or in their room. It's an experience that changes everything you thought you knew about photos!
It's brilliant. It's Easy. It's COME AS YOU ARE.
5 out of 5 kids agree, "It's great when mom doesn't threaten me."

OH. MY. GOODNESS. This sweetie and her proud big siblings were so much fun to work with. I met these guys when we moved to Buffalo and their mama runs Kid's Haven Preschool in Buffalo.
They are darling, well-behaved, and so so snuggly. I love that Missy + her hubby make one child; they all look the exact same! Do you agree?

Sweet Ziggy Mae! I shot her parents wedding back in the day and was so excited to hear about her arrival! We met at a local park and shot her adorable 1st year milestone session. She's bubbly, soft, and rocks the bluest blues I've ever seen.
Devin // Milestone Session
I can't wait to share this in-studio 6 month milestone session for miss Devin. She wore the most precious dress and big brother brought his cars! It's so adorable to watch their snuggles!!
It's really quite an adventure photographing toddlers. All of their curiosity mixed with countless emotions is absolutely beautiful to photograph. I think this kind of family session is much more organic and I love documenting them in this storytelling fashion. Miss. Harper was full of energy, scouting out all the little things that caught her attention all while her bouncy little curls and thick eyelashes shimmered during golden hour.
I am forever amazed with toddlers. They really are the most beautiful little souls!
5 Year Birthday session
Just wait until you see this little gal! She's so full of sparkle and grace!
I met this family for the first time a few years ago at my Santa marathon session and I was such a fan! At that time, little lady was shy and quite honestly, deathly afraid of Santa! But, as you will see, she's evolved into the most lovely and outgoing soul! Happy birthday to Miss L. 5 looks amazing on you!
Hattie. Milestones Birthday Session
Little Miss. Hattie. I cannot imagine a life without her. She's the most petite ball of energy I've EVER met. Get this. She strolls into each session telling me how to work the camera and what she's going to do for me while she's in the studio. Hands down, she might just be my favorite 3 year old ever!!
Watch out world. Haitie's here!
Lola. Milestones 1st Birthday
Prepare for pink overload!
The sweetest of the sweetest spent her first birthday in my NE studio and I have fallen in love with this little darling! She may have become a fan of me too! Proof is in the last photos :)
Happy Birthday little lady!
Coop and his Fire Station
Cooper is the coolest kid. He brought me around his daddy's fire station for his milestone birthday session and it's pretty obvious that he feels right at home. He showed me all the bells and whistles, rocked his helmet, and giggled A LOT. It's been fun capturing this sweetheart over the years and this session of his might be my favorite. He's such a sharp kid and has such a kind soul!
Meet a very special New Years baby named Grant. He came into the studio for his first birthday session ready with a beautiful plane themed cake and props. We had expected an epic cake smash but he was so sweet and a true gentleman about it! I always enjoy these 12 month milestone sessions because the kids are adorable and you can really see their personality, and first time mama's usually rock the shoot with amazing themes! If you're interested in these plane themed props for your little one's session, Grant's mama is amazing and has an interest in renting them out.
Alice Turns One!
Meet Alice! She just turned one and celebrated with me in the studio for her first official family session! Doesn't she have the most angelic look about her?! Her soft baby cheeks and sparkly blue eyes were so stunning!
