Purple Cake Smash | Harlan Ranch

Meet my niece Ashley, also known as “Smash”! When she was younger, she was extremely clumsy and was always getting hurt, thus her nickname Smash. Come to think of it, she is still clumsy.

Ash takes after me in many ways. She is a ball of fire, like me, just a little more “extra”. We both LOVE the color purple so it was a must for this session, and as you can see, she is truly extra and went all in with her hair!

I didn’t get to be around Ashley, and her sister Bailey, when they were growing up. I was living in California and they moved to Washington after my brother joined the Navy. For awhile they even lived across the country in Connecticut.

Now, Ashley is married and has two kids of her own. Her husband is also in the Navy and was recently stationed in California at Lemoore Naval Base. It has been so nice to finally have them close and get to spend fun times together.

For her 32nd birthday Ashley and I planned an adult cake smash. Her personality is perfect for this type of session. You have to have a playful, youthful spirit and be down for pretty much anything. We met at one of my favorite locations and took some gorgeous portraits of her before she got messy with the cake.

When it was time to dig into the cake, Ashley didn’t hold back. She tore through it bit into into the way everyone should when they are eating cake! I am so glad we were able to put this session together! I hope I get more clients willing to play with their cake and eat it too!

Enjoy scrolling through this fun session!
