SAWYER | Scottsdale Baby & Cake Smash Photographer

First Birthday Cake Smash sessions are a hot trend these days. But more than a trend, cake smash sessions are about commemorating a little one's first whole year. Capturing their (truly) genuine expressions and pureness is something that fills my heart with joy. There's no having to convince a one year old to "just act natural" or "be yourself". That's all the can do!

I'm so fortunate and grateful for the wonderful families I've had the pleasure of working with. Many of them return to me year after year, child after child to capture the precious personalities of their adorable children and the document the growth of their family. The Smith family are one of those special families. I've captured more than six Smith family milestones so far and I hope there are many more in our future.

Meet Sawyer. He's the little brother of a smiley, happy-go-lucky little lady I've been photographing since she was in their mama's belly. He's a quiet, easy-going (what's that like?) lovable little man that even at his newborn session made my job pretty darn easy. Just last weekend I met him and his mom and dad at DC Ranch in North Scottsdale - a photographer hot spot. Mom and dad wanted to make this session entirely about him so big sis stayed home with her Auntie. We had a delightful morning session....
