Newmarket Cake Smash Photographer

Louise’s 40th Birthday Cake Smash

During Louise’s 40th birthday cake smash photo session, she asked me how long it’s been since we’ve known each other – since I did her very first photoshoot with her dogs, for my first Dog Day fundraiser. So, I decided to look it up! Turns out Louise, the day we met was January 29th, 2012 – over 8 years ago! (We have an anniversary! Awwww). I was actually surprised we haven’t made it to 10 years yet, I feel like I’ve known Louise (and now, her family) forever!

In the 8 years that I’ve known Louise, we’ve done (and I just went through all my backup files and counted) 15 photo sessions together. It feels like so much more though because I also edit a lot of photos Louise herself takes (yes, I offer photo editing services as well! *toothpaste smile*). But yes 15 photo sessions is about right, as most years we do bi-annual photoshoots… and we’ve only done one this year… SO FAR…. πŸ˜‰

Two or three years ago, Louise mentioned that she wanted to do a cake smash for her 40th birthday. I told her sure, but I didn’t know if I would be doing photography still in 10 years, that’s a long way away to be planning. Turns out, Louise looks SUPER young, and to this day my daughter still thinks she’s in her 20’s πŸ˜‰

Part of her birthday photoshoot was done at her home, with her family, her cats (who did NOT wear party hats! πŸ™ ), and her gorgeous, hilarious children. The other part was done at Crossfit Newmarket – those photos may appear in a separate blog post, if Louise lets me post them πŸ™‚

And so, to my dear friend, my long-time client, the mother of my little photo BFFs, and just all around wonderful human being, I say to you…


I’m so glad I could bring your vision to life! We always have so much fun during our photoshoots, and always laugh pretty hard too. Good times! Fun sidenote: This is our 4th cake smash we’ve done together, after Olive, River, and of course, Dryfuss! πŸ˜‰ (I didn’t actually shoot Dryfuss’ cake smash, Louise did, and then I did all the editing, but I’m still counting it. πŸ˜€ )
