Hi again, everyone!

 I have a hard time facing the fact that little Adley is already a whole year old. But you know what 1-year-old birthdays mean?  Cake.  And smashing cakes, of course!

 Before I get to the adorable photos I know you came here for, I have to share The theme.  Adley's mom wanted peach colors so I came up with the idea of doing a peach farm stand feel.  I LOVED putting this set together!! Can we take a second to shout out to Little Boats for custom making this adorable outfit to match!

 And that, my friends, brings us to a preview of her 1-year smash the cake photos.  As you can see, Adley had quite a bit of fun at her smash the cake session.  Who wouldn't, am I right?  You do not want to miss these pictures. Check them out below!

Today I have a very special maternity blog post for you. It features a stunning and confident woman who was an absolute pleasure to photograph. As you can see, she is gorgeous!

We met at the studio for her session. Her hair and makeup were done and she was ready to shine! 

We talked beforehand, and decided to go for a dramatic, dark and sultry look on these images. I definitely think we were able to capture that!

 

Without further adieu, check out these gorgeous photos!

Hello, gang!

 

The photos I'm sharing with you today turned out so beautifully. As I was editing all the preview pictures for this blog post, I kept getting more and more excited with how they all turned out.

 

Before I debut this session, though, I want to first tell you about Bethany & Michael. We first met when they contacted me to photograph their wedding. Now I get to follow the journey as they become parents. We met up at Mentor Headlands Beach a couple weeks ago and Bethany was just glowing. I knew we were in for a wonderful evening.

Bethany brought some amazing head pieces and wore one of our maternity gowns. she looked beautiful in each of them. 

 

“Meg got me out of my comfort zone for this shoot but we got some pretty cool shots,” says Bethany. I think we definitely pulled off that vibe!

 

Overall, we had a really wonderful time together and I know that Bethany & Michael are going to make the best parents to their little angel.

 

Oh, and if you're wondering if it's a boy or girl, you'll have to wait to find out what the sex is!

Top 5 Tips for Making a Photo Session with Children Easier

If you’re preparing for a photo session with your children, you may be feeling a bit apprehensive. Children aren’t always easy to deal with, which is why the below tips will definitely come in handy before your upcoming photo session.

1. Don't make a huge deal out of it. If you're stressed out and cranky, your kids will usually pick up on it and act accordingly. Their behavior will usually be better if you are relaxed and having fun. You may have to make some compromises to keep the peace such as letting your energetic daughter's hair stay straight instead of curling it into because she won't sit still. Focus on the big picture and don't sweat the small stuff.

2. Make it fun. Let the kids have a couple “fun pictures” where they get to pick their own pose or props. You get to keep the more serious photos while they get to keep their silly photos. This way everyone wins.  If you are struggling to get your kids to sit still, turn the photo session into a game. Simon Says usually works like a charm.

3. Be prepared.  If you're going to be out for several hours, ensure that your children are well rested and have had their nap. Bringing some snacks and activities along is also a great idea. If you are having your own photos taken too then you might want to bring a babysitter or family member along to watch the kids. If you happen to be shooting in a remote location, you never know when you might need something like bug spray, tissues or a first aid kit so bring that along too.

4. Be patient. Save your sanity by trying not to control the photo session too much. Sometimes the best photos come from kids just doing their own thing. Work with and trust in your photographer and your photos will look fantastic.

5. Have a chat. Get your children talking to both you and the photographer about topics such as school or their favorite songs. This allows them to feel more comfortable around your photographer and will also give your photographer a chance to capture a few candid and cute expressions.
