this is super simple to make — it consists of 4 ingredients:

  • cool hwip (spelled correctly)
  • sliced strawberries (mixed with strawberry¬†glaze)

grab a mason jar and layer your ingredients in each one: cake, cool hwip, strawberry/glaze mix, cake, cool hwip, strawberry/glaze mix, etc.

Sofia Riley King

Had the honor of taking photos of my niece for her one month anniversary. I’ve never done a “new baby” photoshoot before, but I took it as a challenge. I knew what type of shots I wanted to do — and what shots I didn’t want to do (eg Sofia in a hallowed-out watermelon a la Anne Geddes… blech).

The challenge was in post-production. I’m in love with the film look that many photographers are mimicking. It softens the photo and adds a lot more character to the subject. It took many hours to get what I wanted… and I don’t think it’s fully there… but it’s close. I can’t wait to do more photoshoots like this to get more practice at post-production.
