Last fall we participated in the Town of Orange Park’s Fall Festival. We had a great time sharing our work and meeting LOTS of people!!
This sweet little guy belongs to one of the sweet couples we met at our booth at the festival.
I am so glad they came to the festival and visited our booth…because just LOOK at this adorable babyyyyyy I got to snuggle. Ugh I could eat him up!
Owen, you were a dream….cant wait to photograph you again when you’re bigger…but don’t grow too fast, ok?

Once upon a time there lived an incredibly talented cake goddess. I could text her a jumbled idea of what I waned and she would magically created exactly what I had envisioned. One day the cake goddess moved far far away to the land of the frozen tundra that is Minnesota. This left me sad and seeking another baker, but who?
Much to my dismay my search for another baker proved to be difficult. Many of the ones I had to choose from simply lacked the talent and attention to detail that I was used or they were just difficult to work with.
So what is a girl to do? Well I am a firm believer in the old adage “If you want something done right, do it yourself.” So that is EXACTLY what I did.
Over the course of the past 2 years I tasked myself with the goal of becoming a cake master. I have a VERY long way to go but I do truly enjoy creating beautiful things…and what’s better than a beautiful thing you can eat???
I typically only bake for my cake smash clients and family, but if you need a slightly crooked cake made with lots of love I am your girl!
I will say I have always had an appreciation for any creative business, but I am here to tell you that making pretty cakes is HARD. Each of the cakes pictured in this blog took anywhere from 4-12 hours, yep you read that right HOURS, to create. So kiss your baker and don’t ask for discounts…oh and a tip is probably a good idea too!
It is not every day your favorite nephew turns one! Shhhh….don’t tell the others!
When my sis told me she wanted a lumberjack themed cake smash I knew exactly what we needed…PANCAKES! I think you might agree when I say that this session is everything. From his scrunchy nose to the face first shot! The level of cute is off the charts!
A lot of people ask where I get my cakes…well because my favorite cake person moved *pout* and since I have very high expectations of what I want a cake to look like, I decided I needed to learn to make them!! At some point I will write a blog featuring all the tasty cakes I have made.

Little Miss A was an absolute rockstar! She may be my fastest newborn to date…maybe. I have had the pleasure of photographing this family for the past 3 years. I have truly enjoyed watching them become parents and now a family of four! If it isn’t amazing enough to watch babies grow, watching them become big brothers and sisters takes the cake! It never ceases to amaze me how simpler and how unique siblings can look as newborns.
A little peek at big brothers newborn session from 2014…
If you are pregnant and in your second trimester, please contact us to plan your newborn session.
I have been wanting to hire Santa to do Santa and Me sessions for SOOO long. This year I but the bullet and did it! This will certainly be an annual tradition.

I think you would probably agree that this guy is the real deal…even my 9 year old let with more Christmas Magic than he came with.

Meet Squishy! This is my adorable and squishy nephew Maddox.
He wanted to share a message with you.
“Dear Simply Newborn Fans,
I have the best auntie ever! She takes adorable picture of me so my mommy can remember all my SQUISH! You should do the same for your squishy baby.
We had a blast at his 6 month sitter session! Check out those ROLLS?? Gahhhh I could eat him UP! He especially loved the fur rug and being “nakie”.
You can view all of his images here.
Don’t forget to check out his adorable newborn images!
It is hard to believe that these cutie pies are already 7 months old! It feels like yesterday I was planning their newborn session.
We planned for milestone and family pictures at another location and circumstances made it necessary for us to reschedule.
On the date of our rescheduled session it was raining! So we went ahead and photographed their milestone images in the studio. The twins rocked their shoot! FYI! That bear kiss….ohhhh my heart!
Then we would shot over to the park and grab a few family pictures. I wasn’t sure we were going to get a break in the rain but we decided to head there anyway…since everyone was already here and dresses. Just as we arrived the rain let up long enough for us to get a great family shots for them. We were also able to get a stunning 4 generations shot!
I think you will all agree that this family is pretty adorable!
Be sure to show them some love! You can view their galleries here —-> Milestone Session & Family Session
