Cake Smash Session Photos



Time flies. It feels like our Godson was just born a few months ago but it has actually been 12 months! Well, it will be 12 months in a couple of weeks. He's about to celebrate his first birthday and what kind of Godparents would we be if we didn't do a cake smash session for him?! If you haven't heard about a cake smash session, let me tell you about it! We've been photographing cake smash sessions for a few years now and I love them. Basically when a baby turns one year old you let them eat cake for the first time. It's all in the name of some adorable birthday photos! The experience is also fun for the parents, aside from documenting such a cute & sweet (pun intended :P) moment.

You never know what you will get with one of these sessions. The baby can either dive right into the cake and start eating it up, they can grab it and put it all over their face and body, or even crawl all over it. One thing is for sure, it makes for some fun pictures!

I can't wait until you see his photos because he was totally modeling for the camera! Very fitting since his Godparents are photographers :) We couldn't have been more proud of him Melissa wanted more of a studio look so we used a white backdrop. I liked switching it up a bit, because we have always done cake smash sessions with more of nature feel to them. You can see some of this by clicking HERE and HERE.

Now, check out our little man hamming it up for my camera!

He was true to the title cake smash! He was all about smashing the cake but he was not really into eating it. The photo below is when he thought he had enough and I think it's adorable! Little did he know we were not done enjoying watching him play with the cake :)

I'm telling you, he was done with the cake smashing and was not loving the idea of actually eating it. I loved how he crossed his little legs <3

I'm glad I kept taking photos, though, because he was too adorable playing with the cake!

Mission San Fernando & The Holding Co Wedding



Samia & Ian ~ Married!
Ceremony ~ The San Fernando Mission ~ Mission Hills, CA
Wedding Reception ~ The Holding Company ~ Los Angeles, California

Samia and Ian had a beautiful beautiful wedding a couple of months ago. They decided on an orange and grey theme. I think my favorite part, aside from the couple, of course, was that Samia created and did all the paper rose bouquets and boutonnieres. She also did all the paper flowers for the centerpieces. That takes much creativity and patience!

Ian and Samia had a very traditional Catholic wedding ceremony at the Mission San Fernando and afterwards they partied it up at The Holding Company which is definitely not traditional. I love how they mixed it up. The Holding Co. is a unique venue. I like that it's a loft that you can transform into whatever you want. It's very urban and industrial looking.

Check out what I'm talking about:

The Holding Co was a nice change of scenery from the garden look they got at the Mission. This had more of an urban / city look.

How lucky are Samia & Ian that they had such happy groomsmen cheering them on...or teasing them...same thing :P

Hotel Casa Del Mar Wedding



Sonia & Benjamin ~ Married!

Hotel Casa Del Mar, Santa Monica, CA

Time to share some of the weddings photos I haven't been able to share with you yet! Let's start with Sonia and Benjamin's wedding pictures! They had a beautiful and classy blush pink and gold theme wedding. My favorite part though was that they incorporated New Orleans traditions into their wedding. I also fell in love with Sonia's pink wedding dress. It was different and the style gave her an old hollywood look. Totally chic! The day started off really early while Sonia got ready. It's been a while since we've done a morning wedding but I love them! The ceremony and reception were both at Casa Del Mar and what an elegant venue it is. I could go on and on about their wedding but I will let you see the images instead!

I think it was a cute idea to add the cake design sketch on their cake table. I also like the feathers on the top of the cake.
