A White Winter ONEderland Cake Smash Session

This theme is really popular- winter ONEderland- but I love it! I enjoyed the pops of trees and twinkling lights that we used. This was mom’s choice- she wanted a white take on this theme with lots of lights and I think that it turned out ONEderful!! The sweet birthday girl got messy and full […]

2022 was a Smashing Good Time – Cake Smash Photography

Greenery & Gold Cake Smash – KristeenMarie Photography

This little guy was all smiles but didn’t care so much about eating the cake. Instead of eating it, he really liked poking a hole in the cake and playing with it. Big sis got in at the end to help feed her brother, although he was still not interested. No problem though, big sis […]

What just happened? 2022 A Year In Review

2022 was a great year! Personally, we welcomed our 3rd and final addition to our family, baby Luka. Professionally I photographed 191 sessions. When I added up all the sessions that number shocked me, as I took off 3.5 months for maternity leave in there!  I’m not going to lie, finding the work life balance […]
