Little Derry popped to the cosy log cabin studio last week to celebrate his 1st Birthday in style. He was dressed in stripes and matched his Mummy and Daddy which was lovely! This was going to be a Cake Smash Birthday Experience to remember :).
Parents usually say to me in a concerned voice “he won’t sit still”. “Of course not” I reply, “he’s just turned 1 and there’s a whole world out there to explore!” I never expect anyone to sit still, that would be boring! It’s better to have fun and make the whole experience memorable to for the right reasons. So that’s exactly what we did, have fun and here are some of their family pics:
The Cake Smash Birthday Experience session is perfect for busy one year olds, there’s plenty to keep them entertained and interested. It’s great to bring along some of their favourite props or toys too, that way we get some lovely personlised photographs.
Then it’s time for cake! Our Cake Smash Birthday Experience cakes are made by the very talented Lucy from Little Lucy’s Bakery, also in Braintree. She makes them in the colour of their choice and the base is white chocolate…yum! Derry’s clever Mummy made him his outfit and lucy matched it with a gingham bow. Oh and that huge balloon!
Now little Derry didn’t spend long in the bath, just long enough to get this shot and have a little clean up. Why? Well he’d remembered his Nutella treat and that was much more important. When people say that shoots are baby led, they really can be nothing else. Derry wanted his Nutella and who were we to argue?
So lovely clean Derry soon became a Nutella boy.. A classic example of a baby led shoot and a very unique fun ending to the session!
It’s ok, he didn’t go home like this, another clean up in the bath and he was good to go 🙂
Thank you Derry for being amazing and to your Mummy and Daddy for bringing you along. We all had a really fun time.
Thanks for reading..
