Today I am 30.
I’ve been sitting on this incredible session for over 5 months! This year has been full of GIANT changes and I knew that I had to do a cake smash session. I’ve always admired the women who decided to celebrate getting older so stunningly, and I’m very proud of who I am at this fun place in my life. So let the celebrating commence!
Maria, owner of Sketchbook Photography, was so kind in photographing this fun time. There was a moment during the session, I looked at her and said, “This is the first time almost a year that I actually feel happy.” And while joy is always an option, I felt so loved being surrounded by friends and hey- how can you not feel happy in a tutu?
Now that cake was so incredibly delicious! It was made by Confections by Libby and I love how she is always giving back through her business.
Every girl should feel like a princess once in a while. Twirling in a park with people staring at me would typically make me feel foolish, but that day, I just felt beautiful. This could have been due to an incredible photographer- but also because I chose to get my hair and make up done. It was probably the best splurge I could have done. Every woman has insecurities but Alissa, Owner of Makeup by Liss Marie, was so complimentary as we did make up. She rocked my hair and make up. Also shout out to Lauren who helped me set up all of the fun!
If I could encourage you to do a cake smash session – do it. I’ve never felt so exhilarated, beautiful, and proud of exactly who I am.
Let me know what you think I should make sure I get done this year. I want my 30th year to be incredible!
This session we also did a few ‘normal’ headshots so be looking for those coming up later this month!
