“My love for children and babies has always been present in my life. So, when my passion for photography awakened, I wasn’t surprised that children were my main focus. I got really serious about photography around the same time I met Trish. Trish Baker became a mom for the second time last summer when Lauren was born. She contacted me to do her daughter’s newborn session and I have done photos for her lovely family ever since.
Fast forward a year later.
Trish is a part of a mom group who are an amazing team. There are 15 moms and 15 babies in this group ranging from 6 months to one year old. She describes this epic mom tribe as coming from ‘different age groups, careers and walks of life – all with one thing in common: their precious babies.’ They started with weekly get togethers and quickly become so much more. They are all now close friends who share parenting advice, milestones and celebrations, helping each other navigate through the ups and downs of parenting.
Trish contacted me to do a huge group cake smash with all the babies about a month ago. I had never done anything like that and my nerves were a mess! On Sunday, August 12, Trish met me in my parent’s front yard where all the cuteness and chaos was to begin!
We set up all the cakes, laid down blankets, and all the babies started to show up. It was incredible to be around so many babies at once. They were all such good friends at such a young age. To see that really did my heart good.
The cake smash was HILARIOUS. All the mommas lined up with babies in hand. On the count of three they sat their babies down and ran behind me!
I snapped as many photos as possible before most of the babies had complete meltdowns (as seen in photos LOL)
It was total chaos, but absolutely adorable at the same time.
All the babies just wanted a snuggle from mom or to have their fingers and toes cleaned off.
Clean up was a breeze and the babies went on their own way.
The response from the photo has been incredible and I’m so grateful for everyone who’s seen the photo and shared it.
They are amazing babies and have the biggest futures ahead of them.”
