Where can I start with this session except to say WOW! This shoot was a woodland dream from start to finish. I have known Amanda for many years now and I had the pleasure of doing her maternity photos last year. We did the photos in the river during the summer and she ended up having a beautiful baby boy whom she aptly named River. So when she said she wanted to do a cake smash for River’s first birthday I knew it was going to be a blast. We went up to Garnet Valley in Summerland, for a magical forest location that perfectly fit the “Where The Wild Things Are” theme. Amanda made an adorable mushroom cake and made all of decorations herself. Her thoughtfulness and creativity in bringing together her vision for the shoot amazed me and I am so honored to get to continue to document her family. So thank you to Amanda and of course Auntie Kyla for the wonderful day in the woods.
It must have been some pretty delicious cake that Amanda made Because River absolutely loved it!
After our cake smash adventures we cleaned River up in the lake and then went and did some portraits in the beautiful golden light.
