Olivia ~ Cake Smash and Family Session
The H family’s cake smash and family session may be one of my favorites from last Fall. We had beautiful weather, the sun cooperated and my subjects were just as sweet as could be. It was great!
The family recently returned to JC after living out of state, so Olivia’s first birthday was a perfect excuse to commemorate the move with new family photos. After our sunset shoot at the waterfront, we headed inside to let Olivia smash a cake…she wasn’t too excited about it at first, but after some convincing (and a spoon) she had fun and we were able to capture some memorable smiles.
One of my favorite locations back in Jersey City offered perfect views of the Manhattan skyline.
I know Charleston doesn’t get the same foliage in the Fall, but hey…beaches 🙂
I do like to photograph families interacting, not just smiling at the camera. A mix of poses and candid images are the best way to tell a family story.
Olivia took quite a while to warm up, but patience and a great idea (spoon) by mom broke the ice!
Please reach out with an email to book your own session! I am currently booking family, cake smashes and newborns in the Charleston area.
