Love Notes

"My photos turned out even better than I imagined. I still can’t believe how incredible I look, like wait, what? That’s me? Kaela really captured the fun of the season and made me look like an actual Cheesecake Doll. I absolutely LOVE my photos and can’t wait to print them out and hang them up.

The Halloween cheesecake shoot was absolutely incredible. From the set design to the coaching, to the final photos, Kaela has far surpassed my imagination and expectation, again.

Working with such a dynamic team of women was so inspiring and uplifting, with hair, makeup, wardrobe, and the photography the background cheering was a welcome addition and really helped me to rock the shoot."

"I would recommend a pinup photoshoot with the Cheescake Dolls to anyone! The set was fantastically laid out, there were lots of options for props, and styling help with every outfit, thanks to Buffy's Vintage Boutique! If you are a shy person or nervous about being in front of the camera, rest assured - Kaela (photographer extraordinaire) is excellent at making you feel comfortable and giving you posing tips so you look your absolute best.
I felt like a million bucks during the process and afterward was blown away by how amazing the photos turned out. If you are on the fence about doing these photos, trust me - you need to do them!!! Your inner goddess will thank you!"
