On Friday morning I was delighted to meet up again with one year old Havana and mum Claire. I had the privilege of photographing Havana’s newborn session when she was only five days old. How time flies! She is now a totally gorgeous one year old with a lovely personality. Claire had been planning this session for some time so had organsed some lovely props. She brought a banner she had had printed about Havana’s progress in the past 12 months. She had also purchased some confetti balloons, a gorgous unicorn tutu outfit and of course the all important cake! I was assisted during the session by my gorgeous photographer daughter Sabina.
We always attempt some test shots before putting the cake down in front of the baby. As you can see below, the results when we do are totally adorable! Some little ones really get stuck in, whereas apparently Havana is not overly keen on getting too mucky so was rather cautious. She did finally get the hang of it though and was licking the cream off her fingers!
Cake Smashes seem to have become very popular around a little ones first birthday, but of course can be done at any time (we have seen some hilarious adult versions!) If you would like to organise one for the little person in your life, please don’t hesitate to contact Tania on 07890 395732 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
As you will see from the images below, recording these special moments in a little ones life are really precious. They grow so quickly, when you look back at how utterly beautiful they were at aged one, your photographs become priceless. I look forward to hopefully recording Havana again in the future 🙂
