I cannot believe that it has been one whole year with my baby girl, Emma. The second I found out I was pregnant with her, I already knew I wanted to do a Mexican themed cake smash. A lot of you may not know this but I am Mexican AND PROUD! I love my heritage so so so much. And now that I have a whitexican (half white, half Mexican) daughter, I want her to grow up being proud to be Latina too. We are even teaching her Spanish!
This session was different than most because it was just Nathan, Emma and I. Just the three of us. Nathan is not a huge fan of doing over-the-top things like this but he loves my extra self so much and he knew how important this was to me that he made it happen and helped me.
Nathan and I headed over to his parents' house and let us use their space because they have nice big windows that let in gorgeous, natural light! Here are my favorites from our session together!
Here are some bloopers involving my wonderful assistant, my husband Nathan...
