Ok, so turning 50 isn’t easy. I’m not gonna lie. I was NOT really looking forward to it at ALL even though I normally love it when my birthday rolls around each year, with all the games in the garden, especially the drinking games and ping pong balls challenges; but this year? Blah. So……I decided to plan some things for my big day that I actually would look forward to, one of which was a fun photo session. I usually DREAD being on the front of a camera, not behind it as usual, but I just decided that this milestone deserved to be documented even though I’m going through this funky sort of pre-menopausal frumpy bloat phase but what can you do?! I had noticed a few adult cake smash sessions on Pinterest but hadn’t seen anyone yet who had done this type of session for their 50th birthday, mostly younger girls were doing them for their 30th, so I thought “what the heck…..why not?!!” I began to gather up some cute props to use in my shoot, made myself a cute tank to wear, bought a sassy pink tutu from the Junk Gypsies, dusted off my leopard print cowboy boots, gathered up some obnoxious rhinestones and pulled it all together so the next step was to find the photographer. I posted a pic of some props I had found for my shoot on Instagram and posed the question of who wanted to shoot the session for me and thankfully Robbin at http://soblessedfamilyphotography.com/ replied that she’d be happy to shoot it for me! She’s normally the master of newborn photo shoots so doing something different and working with someone who will actually stay still and do what you ask them to do sounded fun and appealing to her so we met up at a park on a warm, I mean, like, REALLY warm, September evening and just sort of went for it and had a blast together! Let me know if YOU would like to shoot a photo session like this to document a special milestone in your life because they’re a blast and a fun reason to get all dolled up! I will even help you pull the props together if you’d like because to me, that’s one of the best parts of something like this. Interested? Intrigued?? Leave me a comment or message me and let’s chat! I’ll forever be grateful to Robbin for being willing to do this for me and that I’ll have these images to document this time of my life when I am happy, sassy, fifty and fabulous!!
