Lily’s Studio Cake Smash and Splash

Cake Smash, First Birthday

Mar 29, 2024

I fully recognize this is a full year late in being posted. But, here’s the deal. Last year was one of the hardest years we have walked through as a family. We faced grief, a family reorganization, major health scares, and new diagnoses.

So we found ourselves focused on survival. But with that said, we are on our feet and bouncing back with joy. In the midst of the difficult, we are refined as people. God is creating something new in us.

In the midst of everything last year, we also had our best year in the business – shooting over 130 portrait sessions and 12 weddings. Needless to say, our focus wasn’t on posting and sharing – but we still showed up, served, and loved everyone of these amazing clients. We are so grateful for their faith and trust in us.

We’ve come to realize that we didn’t get the chance to celebrate and share our clients the way we would like to. So, we are taking it to the archives. We are celebrating all of you that believed in us through it all and still made it our best year ever. We can’t wait to see what this year brings. Onward!


Meet Lily!

Lily celebrated turning one with a sweet cake smash and splash. We kept her theme simple so that she would stand out. I LOVE the way these turned out.

Lily was such a sweet little pumpkin. She wasn’t so sure about her cake but before long, even her little toes got to play. The splash on the other hand – she had a blast with. So much fun splashing and playing.

Near then end of the smash, even her family came in to help her with the cake. It was precious. Such fun memories to keep.

My absolute favorite part of this session was that I met her family during the maternity shoot for Lily, then we got to do her lifestyle newborn, and her cake smash. It was so much fun to see her grow from a whispered prayer to a playful toddler. I snuck a few of these in at the end for the fun of it. <3

Love and Light,
