This is Ivy at her first birthday photo session, complete with superbright cake, funky tutu and lots and lots of beads. Well if you can’t dress up for your birthday, when can you?

A little initial uncertainty about the cake and the messiness of the icing was overcome quite quickly when she realised it actually tasted quite good and then there was a good deal of splashing in warm bubbly water in the old tin tub to clean up and have fun at the same time.  A great way to celebrate a first birthday.
