Maternity Photoshoot

In a few months, my husband and I will be welcoming a new baby to our family. I regretted not taking photos the first time I was pregnant, so I made sure that we had some taken this time.

I called upon my friend Stacey of Simply Sweet Snapshots. We have been using our talents as barter to help each other grow our businesses. She took all the gorgeous photos on our website and have documented my first son's two birthday parties and I've been designing her company's logo and promotional materials.

Take a peek at the photos from our maternity shoot and feel free to reach out to her for your own special life milestones that you want to capture!

Double Happiness Cake

My friend, Dorina, owner of Oro Bakery and Bar in New York City sent me this photo of her latest creation this morning. The "double happiness" theme "wowed" me so much that I had to share it.

'The bride wanted something simple and elegant, but also something that would stand out in the beautiful backdrop of party's venue, The Loeb Boathouse, as well as pay tribute to the famillies' Chinese traditions.

Beautiful inside and out, the cake is vanilla paired with a fresh raspberry buttercream to match tastes and decor: The couple doesn't like chocolate, the groom likes fruit flavors.  The flowers were pink and cream. Unlike some other multi-tiered cakes, all the layers are true delicious cake, and took some engineering to make sure it wasn't
going to go "Pisa."'

And having personally tasted Oro's cakes, I can say that they not only look good, they really taste good too!! Contact them for your next event!
