You may remember little Lydia from a year ago when I photographed her first moments during her newborn shoot. My how she has grown now into a gorgeous little girl with an amazing personality! Emma and Jamie contacted me about doing a cake smash session for Lydia at her 1st birthday party at Ickleford village hall, and I couldn't miss the opportunity!
Emma had made and piped a buttercream cake which looked incredible! She also brought along some amazing cake toppers, balloons and a gorgeous tutu for Lydia to wear!
We were unsure how Lydia would react to being placed in front of a giant cake, but as soon as she saw it, she wanted it! Tentatively placing her hand on it at first, she was soon taking fistfuls of cake and eating as much icing as she could handle! I loved seeing her explore and figure out that she could pretty much do what she wanted, it was a joy to capture!
So... cake smashes, messy but SO MUCH FUN! I hope to do more in future!
