You guys. Today is a very special post day. Why?? Well, to start, the wonderful subject of today’s blog is my dear aunt, Jackie! Second, today is her birthday!! Not just any birthday though. 40 can be a scary number for any woman, but Jackie embraced this birthday head on and celebrated in the most fun ways possible! I’ve been holding on to this 40th birthday photoshoot for about a month now, and I can’t believe I get to share it with you today!
Jackie texted me back in April saying that this year, she would be turning 40. She said that she wanted to embrace 40 and have fun. Would a 40th birthday photoshoot do the trick? Absolutely!! We did a 31st birthday cake smash last year and had such a blast. I knew this would be extra special, especially because my cousins were going to be involved!
We made plans over the next few months for her session. She ordered the cutest “Forty” tank top and tulle skirt to bring out her inner child. Jackie made a chalkboard sign, resembling the statistic signs our cake smash little ones have! And speaking of cake, oh boy was there a lot of it. As a bonus, we spiced things up with some balloons and confetti.
On the day of our session, we met out at one of my favorite locations, Lake Runnymede. It was also where the family had their anniversary session last November! My cousins, Olivia and Cooper had such a blast exploring the land and participating in the shoot. Cooper probably ate about a pound of confetti and about lost it when throwing it over his mom. Olivia was such a little mini-me of Jackie and she couldn’t wait for her own shoot in December! 9 year olds have to have fun too!
I think the most entertaining part on both ends was the cake. We went a little untraditional by just eating it and not smashing it. So worth it! The kids were absolutely covered in chocolate and Jackie enjoyed laughing at the silliness of the situation with them. The cake didn’t come out for days! If you ever need to just let go and enjoy life, call us for your own cake smash session.
Take a peek at this wonderful 40th birthday photoshoot and a HUGE happy birthday to you, Jackie!! Love you so much!!
