As a photographer, I am privileged to witness and capture beautiful moments that unfold during significant milestones in family lives. One such memorable occasion is a first birthday cake smash that took place at my NEW studio at 2125 West Fifth Ave in Columbus, Ohio. In this blog post, I want to share my perspective on the importance of trusting the process and the value of capturing these precious memories amidst the chaos.

One of the reasons I love cake smash sessions is the opportunity to capture genuine, unfiltered emotions. From the initial curiosity and excitement to the joyous mess that follows, every moment tells a unique story. These photographs serve as a time capsule, freezing these precious moments in time for parents to cherish for years to come.

These boys did not disappoint! They were a dream to have in my  Studio.

In the midst of a cake smash session, it’s common for things to get messy. Cakes crumble, icing smears, and little ones become covered in delicious chaos. But it is precisely in these imperfections that the true beauty lies. Through my lens, I capture the messy smiles, the sticky fingers, and the pure delight on their faces, immortalizing the innocence and playfulness of this milestone.

I’m really happy that I can talk about such a great family for my first Studio Cake Smash, and I can’t wait to see them again as they grow up and become the little kings and angels we know them to be. Taking pictures of these kids  was a real adventure and one that I’d be happy to go on again and again for such a beautiful family. Sometimes you need to lean into the mess and treat yourself with a piece of cake (or the whole thing!) and trust that things are going to turn out okay.
