Sorby Sweets 1st Birthday Styled Shoot

Styled Shoots

A few weeks ago, my sweet friend Amanda of Sorby Sweets reached out to me about doing a small shoot for her business baby’s 1st birthday. I absolutely ADORE Amanda + collaborating with her always makes my heart so happy! She is insanely talented + such a wonderful friend, I just knew I had to make this shoot happen. Initially, the shoot was just going to be Amanda and one of her beautiful cakes. But, in a way that ONLY Amanda can do, she turned it into something SO much more than that!!!

I have NO idea how Amanda put all of this together, but I walked into her house on Saturday morning and I was blown away! She had a fully styled table, tons of adorable props, AMAZING cakes and all of her friends there to celebrate! We popped champagne, ate cake for breakfast (because Kate Spade says so) + celebrated an AMAZING first year of business for Sorby Sweets!

Enjoy some of my favorites from our styled shoot!! Congratulations, Amanda! You are a ROCKSTAR!
