Welcome! I'm a photographer, wife, mom to a sweet baby boy we call John-John, and am expecting another little boy in June.

I've started blogging to share the ideas, products, and discoveries that have made my life easier and more intentional in hopes they will do the same for you!

Hi! I'm Emily






Pink Floral Cake Smash: Sofia



Sweet baby Sofia. This little lady turned one recently and her adorable family came over to celebrate with a cake smash session. Sofia’s mom, Maria, wanted to keep things clean and simple for the theme. This is why I always allow families to bring their own props and cake! There are so many styles and I want the images to match your vision, not a set of props I could pick out and provide.

Sofia’s feminine, understated session was perfect for such a sweet little girl. I couldn’t get enough of her cheeks and curls and thighs! Those rolls, so delicious 🙂

After a few family photos with dad Carlos and big brother Diego, we took a few of just Sofia with her block letters and then she dove into her cake! Diego was very patient, giving Sofia a few seconds to dig in before he came in to “help” her. Then, it quickly became a family affair with icing in hair and flowers everywhere. It was exactly what I love about cake smashes. They are such a fun experience, not just a photo shoot. I know I can’t get enough of them!

Below are my favorites from Sofia’s session. Enjoy!


If you're looking for photography that is so much more than just gorgeous images, it's an experience that allows you to be fully present with the ones you love, you're in the right place.
