Cake Smash & Fairies

When I was asked to do a cake smash, it took everything in me to not shriek with delight! This was second one, and I just loved the first one so much I was anxious to do another one. My excitement grew when I saw this sweet little guy with that charming smile wearing the overalls and his adorable chocolate lab puppy. The puppy was too busy wanting to explore, but I did manage to get a couple shots of him. The only thing I wish I had--before the cake smash--was a fishing pole and a tin bucket because I feel like some of these photos say "little country fishing dude".

After I was finished with the future birthday boy, I moved onto his sister who just did not want her picture taken at all. So I just went with it, imagining she was a fairy who just wanted to fly around and play. I did manage to get a smile or two out of her. The best part was when she and her cousin sat on a little bridge. They got to giggling when I made myself slide down into the deep ditch and saying I was falling. I nearly landed on a stick coming up from the ground which got them laughing even harder. The pink winged fairy kept asking me to do it again and again! I'm happy to report after the photo shoot I was covered in dirt and sweaty, and it was all so very worth it!

Fall Mini Sessions

I seriously had not realized it has been two weeks since I posted! We have been busy with getting into a routine since school started, and it seems like we have fallen into a decent pattern. I soon realized I need to get something together for mini photo sessions. Last year, I went with my son on a school field trip to Calie's Acre I fell in love with it, and for the past year I dreamed of doing photo sessions at this location. The time has finally arrived and I spoke with the owner who is graciously allowing me to use their beautiful farm.

Calie's Acre is located on Hwy 300 between Longview and Gilmer. They have beautiful, nice sized pumpkins, a pond with ducks, a maze, barrel train ride, hay ride, a gift shop, and a very cool hay mountain that the kids can climb. I highly encourage for anyone who books a session with me to spend some exploring after your session.

Now for the details on the Fall minis. Each mini is 30 minutes and I do require that 1/2 of the amount be paid at time of booking to retain your time slot and it will also cover admission into the pumpkin patch. Mini photo session plus fun exploring the pumpkins? What can be better than that? The remaining amount of the session rate can be paid at the time of your appointment. You will get a disc of 10 edited images with your print relase, your choice of an 8x10 printed photo, and a private online gallery from which you will select the photo you want for your 8x10. Please limit up to 5 people per session and babies that can sit or stand unassisted. As much as I would love the chance to photograph babies younger than 6 months, I don't have anything that can help them to sit up Halloween costumes are welcomed as well!

To book your session, please email me at katbakerphotography@gmail.com Please be sure I have the correct email address for you so I can send a PayPal invoice. Look forward to all the Fall fun and capturing those memories for you and your families at the remarkable Calie's Acre!
