Colyn, 1 year

I met Colyn when he was a newborn, but this was my first chance to photograph him.  What a cutie he has become!  All boy and all smiles 🙂 !


Kaelyn 1 year, Family Photos

To celebrate Kaelyn’s first year, her family came out for a photoshoot in the park.  Her mommy did a fantastic job coordinating their outfits.  How cute is this family photo?  Kaelyn was the happiest chasing her little friend around after we were “done.”  That’s when I captured her cutest smile 🙂

Emily, Cake Smash!

I hadn’t seen Emily since she was a few months old… what a beautiful little girl she has become!  She just turned one, so a cake smash was in order! Her parents went the extra mile to find a cake that met her allergy requirements, and then the smashing began!  Oh my, it’s fun to be one!

Emma, 1 year

Emma came back for her one year portraits.  What a cutie pie!  I love seeing these babies grow and progress through their first year.  It’s such a joy to capture each of their stages.  Doesn’t Miss Emma look beautiful in her party dress?

New Cake Smash Session – Free 12×12 custom mounted collage

Remember your little one’s first birthday forever with a cake smash session.  This is a full in-home studio session.  I’ll set up, and we’ll set your baby in front of his or her very own cake, and snap away as your baby explores, tastes, and smashes the yummy goodness.  I’ll design a custom storyboard collage that will be available for purchase as a mounted print, standout, or art block. If you book in February or March, I’ll provide the 12×12 mounted print free!  If you are looking for someone to do a custom smash cake in the area, Ashley at Ashley’s Couture Cakery is offering $5 off a smash cake when you book a session with me.  Contact her by email at or by phone at  (661) 312-3747.



Schrader’s Cake Smash

Schrader took a slightly different approach to his cake, once he figured out that it was edible.  He was so excited! If his stomach could have held it all, I’m pretty sure he would have eaten the whole thing!  “Mmmm, this is good, Mom!” In the end, his cute little belly triumphed over the messy goodness left all over the floor.

Dylan’s Cake Smash!

I can’t even describe how fun this was.  Dylan really liked eating the candle (oops!) and smashing the cake… In the end he turned the whole thing over and smashed it into the ground, as he drove over the cake with his new cakeboard car.  Vrooom! Happy 1st birthday, Dylan!

Taylor – 1 year

Taylor showed up walking for her one year photos.  What a cutie pie!  She talked up a storm and smiled liberally with her adorable cheesey grin 🙂  She played in the sand and the leaves, and even kissed the tree and rubbed it while saying, “Nice, nice.”   Only one, and already an outdoors girl 🙂

Julianna – Holiday Mini Session

Julianna came in for her holiday photos.  I love the “You better watch out” look she gave me.  Perfect Christmas card material!  And those cheeks!  Hehe, you just want to squish them 🙂


Schrader, Holiday Session

Now when Jamie said, “Farrah, I have a challenge for you,” I had no idea what I was getting myself into.  Not only would I be shooting her 10 month old, Schrader, but her dog, AND her two beautiful cats… TOGETHER!  Try getting 3 pets and a baby to all sit still and look at the camera?  The only thing I could think was, “Good thing I’m also a visual FX artist!”  I have to say,  I really love it!
