    My Baby’s First Fiesta (and Cake Smash)

    I created a one year and cake smash set based on the theme for baby’s one year birthday party: Baby’s First Fiesta. The cake is a mini 2-tier, and is a small version of the cake for his actual birthday party. My intention was to have a session outside at Corriganville Park in Simi Valley because it has a nice desert look to it, but in the end, it was much more comfortable to do the cake smash in-home. Baby was so comfortable that he was singing during his session. Shout out to Golden Mittens Bakery for the amazing cactus/succulent cake and Enchanted Rose Creations for the custom banner! Session:…

    Newborn Memories

    I can’t believe my baby is almost 1… I am planning his one year cake smash and birthday party, while looking back at old photos (yes, this is the same big baby I took taking the sink bath). I took the above photo at the hospital with my iPhone the day after he was born. So, I thought it would be fun to do a creative edit of this photo: So what did I change? The Trees: I wanted the photo to be about light, so I took away the green from the open window and made the window bright and white. Smudges: I minimized the smudges on baby’s bed…
