Anna’s Cake Smash Shoot! | 08.24.10 | Maine Baby Photographer

Melissa contacted me a while back about doing a “cake smash” shoot for her daughter, Anna, right before her 1st birthday. I was thrilled, because not only do I love kids (especially chubby little babies!) but I’d never done a cake smash shoot before and was excited to try it out! It is exactly what it sounds like: you set the child down in front of a cake and let them smash the heck out of it. Amazingly enough, babies are EVEN CUTER when covered from head to toe in frosting (and a whole lot more edible). I went to Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, with Melissa, her husband and Anna and we had a blast exploring the park and then smashing some cake!

Hilary & Rich | Married! 08.09.10 | Castle Hill Resort Wedding | Vermont Wedding Photographer | Vermont Elopement Photographer

Hilary and Rich had an absolutely beautiful (and unique!) elopement. They went to Castle Hill Resort & Spa in Ludlow, Vermont, nestled right in the Green Mountains. Hilary got herself all dolled up at the Aveda salon and they met in the library of the main castle, which was just FANTASTIC. I didn’t realize how much I was dying to photograph a library ceremony until it was right there in front of me! Hilary wore the most fantastic orange dress (Rich’s favorite color, and a complete surprise to him!) and the two of them were just ecstatically excited! Congratulations to you both!
