This is one of my favourite families as I’ve just known them ages – having been their wedding photographer and family photographer for seven years or so I think . So it’s always a pleasure to have them in for their family portraits, including this time a cake smash and a tub splash to celebrate their littlest’s first birthday.

So we spent some time capturing them together as a family to start with and then the two sisters together – trying to keep things as natural as possible. I still remember capturing images of the two sisters together in their newborn session and that seems like just yesterday – where does the time go? Then it was the time to get out the cake and see what happens – big sister was more than happy to help out with this part of the session!  I used for the first time my newly purchased cake smashing trowel – inspired by some very clever clients who brought one along for their session an it worked so brilliantly, I had to get one for myself.  Then it was finally time to clean up in the tin tub before getting dried off and saying farewell.

A family portrait session costs £95 which includes your five favourite digital images to download, print and share.  You can choose to purchase additional digital images, prints or canvases directly from your online gallery but there’s no sales or viewing session to attend.
