Smash the Cake session with Saint John Photographer.

Smash the cake session in Saint John










Smash the Cake session with Saint John Photographer, Miranda O’Leary Photography.

As many of you know we were graced with a precious new baby boy this past year. Guess what? He just turned one last week. I know it’s crazy to think about how fast he has grown before our eyes. Where has this year even gone?

I’m not sure how I was able to pull it all off this year. With lots of support from family and friends I was able to keep my work flow going without many delays. Although I will say the baby brain was very hard, and my memory was not at it’s best this summer. Many grooms who had their names said wrong over and over will vouch for that. Haha. They have forgiven me.

Well a year later my brain is back in full form again and my creative spirit is starting back up in me. Life is great!

This past week we had the honor of singing our sweet little guy “happy first birthday”. The house was filled with many of his favorite people. I have done many Smash the Cake sessions in combination with children’s first birthday sessions. But for this one I had everyone come into the studio to watch him tear apart his amazing little cake which was made by Angela Richard (a sweet client of mine who offered to make his cake for me). It was very fun for me to hear all my loved ones laughing, singing, and taking part in his Smash the cake session.

My husband video taped the fun and now you can all see the silly little guy getting his first real taste of sugar. I would also like to mention he always goes to bed at 7:30 pm but this special night he was running wild until 1:00 am. Who says sugar doesn’t effect kids? haha

If you have an upcoming milestone and need a Saint John photographer, please give me a call at 638-8103 or contact me here to book soon. I would be honored to have the opportunity to share in your memories. :)
