One of the most treasured things for me is to watch couples grow into families. This mom and dad have been with me for years, planning a different theme every year for their Anniversary sessions and I adore them. The joy I feel when new parents bring their littles to me is indescribable. Mom and I planned this sweet mermaid theme for months. She had seen my Unicorn Cake Smash/Milestone done earlier 2018 and loved it, however, she really loved the idea of a mermaid setting, too. In an effort to bring both her ideas to life, she requested a super cute Narwhal for the cake, edible artistry by the talented Cooks Cakery. Custom set design work was a labor of love at 10-12 hours of shopping, designing and set up for this session, cutting, mounting and propping everything into it's place. Water basin from Amazon as well as twinkle lights, most all the other goodies were items I've purchased from Facebook yard sales over the years!
How fun is this?! Everyone needs a little Narwhal in their life!!
This sweet girl had the face of an angel!!
Time to dig into that cake!
I always encourage parents bring something personal from home, a lovey, or something of the little ones that signifies this phase in their little life, making it a part of the session only personalizes their images more.
Time for the Splash! There are few things more adorable than a baby splashing in the tub with some bubbles! Throwing a little blue food coloring into the water really brought this little mermaid to life!
