Pine Island, Hernando Co. Fl | Beach Photo Session with the Konz Family

Cake smashing fun on the beach!

Meet the Konz family, y’all. Traveling from Lancaster Kentucky to visit family in Brooksville Florida. Casey and her husband decided they wanted some family photos taken on a beach. When I got the call and heard Casey’s adorable southern accent, I just had to nail the consultation! I knew she and her family would be so much fun to hang with and capture memories. And that we did, my friends.

We met up at Pine Island where the beach, to our surprise, was PACKED! I’m talking there was people everywhere! I was so up for the challenge. TGFPS! That is my acronym for “THANK GOODNESS FOR PHOTOSHOP”. Seriously, it was nuts! Babies, buckets, bikinis and swim trunks were EVERYWHERE!!!

Before I showcase this adorable family, let’s dive in to their lives and learn a bit about the Konz family.

Alex, aka Dad, is a lineman that spends his days constructing power lines and responding to disasters as needed. A very hardworking man per Casey, and it sure sounds like it to me when describing her husband.

Casey, aka Mom, is a respiratory therapist who spends her days helping those lucky Kentucky patients breath better. She currently manages 80 ventilators!

Braxon, their rainbow baby who always is smiling, loves everything to do with water and people. So appropriate to have his smash cake on the beach, right?!

I mean seriously! How can this kid gets any cuter? I wish I looked that adorable after stuffing my face with cake!

Braxon loves bath time, food, riding the rzr around the yard with this mom and dad. He loves to play outside and enjoys anyones company.

When I asked Casey what her favorite part of the session was, she replied with Braxon eating his cake. I couldn’t agree more! I mean look how much fun that was. And so many people besides us enjoyed watching him eat as well. He had an entire audience! Families just stopped to smile and watch him.

Thank you so incredibly much Casey and Alex for having me be the photographer of choice for your photography needs while visiting Florida. I’m so excited for your next visit! My readers will be waiting for the update on Braxon.

Brooksville Florida first birthday photo session |Serenity is one and she’s cake smashin’


Hi again, everyone!

I have a hard time facing the fact that little Serenity is already a whole year old. But you know what 1-year-old birthdays mean? Cake. And smashing cakes, of course! Serenity will be 1 on July 18 and her parents Josh and Cierra couldn’t be more proud of their baby girl.

Before I get to the adorable photos I know you came here for, I have to share pictures from her previous session with me at the families holiday photos. I cannot believe how fast the time has gone!


Since then, she has been enjoying playing patty cake, bath time, sweet potatoes and strawberries.  Serenity is crawling, walking, babbling, having conversations, says mama, dada, baba, and waves hi and bye.

And that, my friends, brings us to her 1-year smash the cake photos.

Cierra and Josh gave her a quick nap prior to the session and boy was she ready to go when the photo shoot began. This session was filled with pink and gold and CAKE! Gotta have the cake!



As you can see, Serenity thoroughly enjoyed her smash the cake session.  I know I’d have fun playing in cake!

But what happened before all the smashing’?  Check out some pictures “before the smash” occured.

I hope you all enjoyed this weeks blog post.  Thank you for always coming back to pick up what I’m putting down. You all mean the world to me!
