Maxi turns one

It was so lovely to meet Maxi today. He is such a character. He was cracking all the smiles for Mum and Dad and what a beautiful smile it was too!. Maxi started off his photo session with a cake smash, then he needed a bath (he needed it, he was covered in blue icing), following by some lovely portrait shots with his Mum and Dad. I love it when photoshoots have a bit of variety to them and this shoot certainly had that.

It reminded me so much of his Mummy's maternity photoshoot, she was up for trying anything too! It was really difficult to choose which images I wanted you to see but I decided to go with these.

Eliza's cake smash

Today I did a cake smash photo shoot with the beautiful Eliza who just turned One.

Amelia's Cake Smash

Finally got around to putting my photos up of Amelia's cake smash (practice run). All photo shoots are different, this one was particularly difficult as Amelia just wanted to crawl all over the place. She wasn’t one bit interested in the balloons or the giant cake. She just wanted to eat the backdrop which was made out of paper. (Her favourite food)

As a photographer you have in mind the perfect images that you want to shoot but toddlers are unpredictable and often you just have to go with what they are in the mood for. The below images are my favourite shots. I made the cake myself and was really happy with how it came out. It will be the same cake that I will make for her actual first birthday. Let’s see what kind of shots I will get on that day.
