OK, so picture the scene – we are at Megan’s first birthday ‘smash and splash’ photo shoot and the time has come to get out the cake. Megan puts on her outfit and I start to explain that babies don’t always take immediately to the whole cake smashing process.
Sometimes they need some encouragement to begin to explore the cake, all it is a new experience for them and so on… Meanwhile, the cake has been been placed on the floor in front of Megan and by about half way through my explanation of why it might take a few minutes, she has dived into the cake and is smashing like a pro!
Still, I’ve never been so happy to have been proved wrong and we had an amazing session – both with the cake and in the tub for the splash portion of the photo shoot. The resulting images are just an amazing record of a very special first birthday!
