Saratoga Smash Cake Session and Fall outdoor Family Portraits

This Smash Cake in one of my favorite locations in Saratoga was a crazy one. Normally a quiet place, this park turned into a corporate event on the day of our session.

I got to the location a little earlier. To my big surprise, what I saw is the entrance being blocked by a “corporate event” sign. Loud, live band music is playing. The park is swarmed with people. The scent of BBQ and grilled sausage is filling the air. And I’m panicking.

I called the client, explained what’s happening, and promised I’ll find a great solution to this before they get here.

I quickly started listing all the locations I knew in the area. And there is a few. However, the conclusion was simple. We didn’t have the time to make the drive to any of them before we would lose the gorgeous light. With a few minutes to spare, I went inside for a hunt for the best spot in the swarmed with people park. As I entered it, I realized, I know just the right place. I was not mistaken.

We were able to do the entire session without a single person bothering us on the back of the entire party. However, the smell of the bbq and grilled sausage was really hunting me the entire time. LOL

Saratoga Smash Cake Session

After the session, Kristen and her family gave me the best gift a photographer can get. A beautiful review:

 

AMAZING! Our family session was on Sunday night and it’s Tuesday and we already have our pictures! Ewa was great with our son and was able to improvise when the park where we were planning to have our session was closed! She knew there was a clearing, sort of in the woods, towards the back of the park and it was the perfect backdrop for our family session. The pictures are fantastic and I would recommend Ewa over and over!

 

If you’re ready to make some magic this Fall with me, grab this gift from me, and schedule your first session, TODAY! My weekend dates in September are booked however there is still time to create beautiful memories in October and November. Well, even December is cool, if you like to splash in puddles! 

Half Moon Bay Smash Cake Photographer. “Smash Cake on the beach”

Maybe it was the Half Moon Bay beach, because I always get overexcited for beach sessions. Or maybe it was the smash cake on the beach idea. Or maybe the fact to be working again with a family that I’ve worked with several times since the little one was born. Maybe it was all of it put together. Probably. It all came together nicely. Even the 8:30 in the morning worked out pretty good for us.

Each time I have a session with them I go home with a huge grin on my face, and this time wasn’t any different. How could I not to, look at them…

But if that wasn’t enough, after this session we’ve decided to work together again. This upcoming weekend is our Holiday Mini-Session Party at this mama’s home, and we are super excited about it.

1st Birthday Smash Cake {Smash Cake Photographer, San Jose, CA}

It always amazes me how careful and unsure about the cake kids are at first.
If somebody would have put a whole cake in front of me and said: “go ahead! It’s all yours!”, I would not think twice. Would you?

It also fun when parents or siblings get involved into the whole cake eating, or smashing on each other… This time we had a Big Brother lending a hand…
