Always such a pleasure to capture lifelong memories for the Rikards as their family grows. This is our third cake smash we have done and first one outside. They are always so much fun. Levi, Rhett and Harper helped so much getting it all set up. When you are out at The Farm you never know what you will come across…did I tell I don’t like snakes…well we found about a 7 foot king snake watching in the weeds. Yikes!. Thanks to Preston he took care of it for us! After that we were able to capture some beautiful images.

Weston -1/2 Birthday!

Well….I won’t tell how many times it took to get a few pictures of Weston for his six month photoshoot. He was not having it!!!. He did not like any of the buckets because he is not sitting up completely by himself yet. Eventually I was able to get a few to mark his 1/2 birthday! We love you little man!

Happy 3rd Birthday Charlie!

Here we go again….Cake smash number 3! This year our theme was Mickey Mouse and Charlie was eager to smash his cake and do some posing for us. He is getting so big we might have to move these outside. He might have a few things to say when he gets older and Kari drags out these pictures! Happy Birthday Charlie…We love you!

Precious Adalyn…1st Birthday!

What a special day as we finally got to photograph Adalyn for her first birthday. Covid-19 has been busy keeping our schedules a little crazy. Looking forward to more fun times getting outside and enjoying our families. Happy Birthday Adalyn!!!

Unicorn Birthday’s are Magical!

What happens when you add a beautiful little princess named Emmy, a horse named Mr. Sandman and a great farm out in the country? You get a magical Unicorn session! We had so much fun capturing these special images for Emmy’s 4th Birthday Party. Thanks to Mom and sister (Tory) for all your help in making this happen. Happy Birthday Emmy! I hope you have the best day ever.

Charlie 2nd Birthday Cake Smash

Kari has decided to do a cake smash session every birthday until Charlie’s 18th Birthday…that should be interesting as he gets older. Here is Birthday #2 in following with the fishing theme….he was quite a pistol and his expressions are priceless!

Happy 2nd Birthday Charlie…

I have been dying to share these images of Charlie’s 2nd Birthday Fishing Theme session. Thanks to Pop Pop for building the little dock for the photoshoot. Kari didn’t want me to share until after the party today. She has an amazing gift of party planning and our vision came together beautifully. Happy Birthday Charlie!!! Overshare – Sorry!


Happy 1st Birthday Stella!

We had so much fun with Stella and her family as we celebrated her 1st Birthday cake smash! Her sisters were in on all the fun as well. Stella didn’t have to be coaxed to tear into this yummy cake and she was facinated by the apples! We love capturing these precious memories for their family. Happy Birthday Stella!
