I haven’t done a personal post in awhile, so I wanted to share some shots I took while apple picking with family and friends at Applecrest (www.applecrest.com). You’ve seen me do blog posts from Applecrest in the past, so I’ll keep it short and simple, but I just love the Fall colors, so it’s hard to resist :)
I know you’ve seen some fantastic cakes already from Torte di Venezia, including birthdays, graduations, and even a few wedding cakes, but I wanted to dedicate this blog post to strictly anniversary and wedding cakes, since that is their specialty! Check out their fantastic attention to detail and their fun, unique cakes! And be sure to give them a call if you’re in need for your special event!
And in case you were wondering what the mastermind herself looks like…
This will be your designer, your baker and your customer service rep, the owner of Torte, Karen Venezia. Follow her on FaceBook and get to know her! Reach out! Send an inquiry! You won’t be disappointed :)
Before Baby Ava, there were three :) Meet the Demakes and checkout their beautiful Fall photo session. Not only did this shoot act as a family portrait, but it doubled as Melissa’s maternity shoot as well. The Fall colors really bring vibrance into these photos and I absolutely adore the shot with the lake. Love is in the air with this adorable family!
Before Ms. Harper, there were three! Meet the Turner’s – Nicole, Kevin and KJ – who, at the time of this shoot, were patiently awaiting the arrival of their newest family member, Harper, whom I just adore :) Nicole and Kevin’s wedding was at Indian Ridge Country Club in Andover, so it only seemed fitting to go back to this beautiful spot for their family shoot. Check out this sweet family’s scenic shots…
Nicole’s adorable, floral maternity belly band is courtesy of My Daughter’s Boutique. Check them out!
Mommy & Me shoots have become very popular. They are usually a little more casual, than a posed studio session. Typically, they are done at the family’s home/backyard or a local spot where it’s fun to hangout and just be yourself! The goal is to capture mother and child the way they interact when no one’s around. You might recall Elyse and Connor’s shoot last summer, where the two just chilled on the beach down the street from their house where they frequently go :)
For this session, Jenn took Nicholas to Connor’s Farm in Danvers (www.connorsfarm.com) for some fun and he loved every minute of it! In addition to the animals and all the great attractions there, they have a beautiful pond filled with lily pads. I was able to get a great shot of the reflection of the clouds in the sky and the photo of Jenn and Nicholas in front of this pond, might be my favorite one :)
Torte di Venezia has been very busy not only baking, but growing the business, marketing and branding! I’ve been asked to continue to photograph all their special goodies along the way. There will definitely be more to come in the future as Torte’s website, blog and social media platforms are built and continually updated ;)
How adorable is this child’s jungle themed birthday cake and matching cupcakes?!
You may have seen one of these beautiful wedding cakes on my FaceBook page (https://www.facebook.com/#!/AngelaDeSimonePhotography) before ;)
In addition to amazing cakes and cupcakes, Torte offers small baked goods as well – very versatile!
And finally, owner, Karen, has a real affinity for the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. Isn’t this cake amazing?! The detail of the cat laying on the tree limb, just like the movie, is truly awesome!
