People ask me all the time what my favorite type of sessions are to photograph. Honestly, it is a toss up between newborn and cake smash sessions. I love them for very different reasons, but they are equally important in my opinion. It really is so incredible being a cake smash photographer in Boise. I am able to see these darling newborns a year later and they are tiny people instead of these tiny newborns. It really is so wild and amazing.

Once I got newborn sessions figured out I knew the next step for me was to get into being a cake smash photographer. At the time cake smash photography was just starting to become popular. Cake smash session were very different than they are now. It’s really fun to go back and look at how simple and sweet they were.

This is Sweet Madi. Her mom and I have been friends since we were freshmen in high school. I was able to photograph her as a newborn as well.
