Photo Props and Cake Pops



While I was compiling the final plan for Mom & Me photos with my boys, I came up with the phrase “Photo Props and Cake Pops” as the theme for our photos this year. After I said it out loud, I knew I had to share the idea with other local Mommas!

So, I hopped on Instagram exactly ONE WEEK before V-Day and let everyone know I’d open Mom & Me sessions in the studio, providing photo props and cake pops, THAT SUNDAY!!!

I’m so happy Karissa and her family were able to make it!! Karissa is Clynn’s cousin. We were able to get photos of all four cousins before she left, too!

Photo props were pulled from a wedding photo-booth prop set from Target! I just pulled out Valentine’s Day applicable ones and we blew up a ton of pink and red balloons. Everything worked out perfectly!

I photograph families very different to couples and weddings! Especially families with really young kiddos. I take more of a photo-journalistic seat and try to control less by creating a fun environment for them. Then, I mostly watch them interact with their surroundings and click all the cute natural moments.

I’ll save the “everyone looking at the camera” photo for when it feels easy and not forced! Often times, young ones will pick up on the pressure of a posed photo and not recognize the expectation or emotion and get fussy as a result of new-to-them energy. I find saving that expectation for when they’re older much better for every one!

This is post 2 of 5 from Valentine’s day photos! Stay tuned…

THANK YOU, Colledge Family!!

They’re all taking great care of me, too! Working my booty offf. Trying to eat healthy and navigate adulting more […]

The in between

Life has been very romantic lately. Unknown and confusing and both flighty and grounded all at once. I remember being 14 and seeing my entire life by your side. Life is wild. I remember a water bottle and abandoned bleachers. I remember axe body spray and the way I had never been kissed. I know […]

Nirvana & I think of you

I hope you know better than to think I’d want to be anywhere but here right now. It was true on NYE and it’s true right now in my car outside the café. This may have felt seamless. Too seamless. Happenstance. But I’m here on purpose, now. I see your soft heart and I see […]

I hope you know better

You’ll walk through a glittering white veil, uncharacteristically soft compared to what you’ll find behind it. It has no need to keep you out. You quickly realize it’s the aura within that turns most around. The texture disorients. I’ll already be inside. What do you see? Upon first impression, you’re in a desert. Interesting considering […]
