Happy Birthday Pearl

Happy Birthday Pearl!

Well this gorgeous little girly turned the big ONE last week and we had a mini celebration in the studio. Pearl enjoyed her birthday cake smash so much that I’m pretty sure she would have stayed until closing.
The smiles on Pearls face were so natural and honest, I loved how much fun she was having with her cake and how much she enjoyed being messy. After Pearl had finished making a huge mess with her cake, we brought out the vintage bath tub. And yes, it is a new one! I found this lovely bit of history at The Old Pill Factory, Witney. You can find the website link at the bottom of the page.
I am usually very good at judging who will be a professional splasher and who will just enjoy the warmth of the lovely warm water in the bath tub, well this time I was so very, very wrong. Pearl was an epic splasher, I literally had to take a step back to ensure my camera didn’t get wet. She was amazing!!

All in all we had a wonderful hour in the studio and I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with little Pearl. So before I blather on about how much I love my job, here are my favourite images from the day.

Enjoy x

Ewan’s Birthday Cake Smash

by

Today I am talking about Ewan’s Birthday Cake Smash….

The gorgeous Ewan came in for his 1st birthday cake smash recently, after a little period of “why are you all staring at me” he settled into his cake smash and made a royal mess…which we love! He was fantastic, I thoroughly enjoyed watching his face light up when he tasted the cake and his expression as he enjoyed mushing and smashing the cake to oblivion.

His gorgeous smile was incredibly infectious and his gorgeously cheeky laugh really made my day, once he got in to it, his smashing skills really came out and we had loads of fun.

If you follow my blog you will know just how much I enjoy photographing cake smashes, every single one is so unique and no matter how the child reacts to the gigantic cake they are presented with it always turns out to be loads of fun.

Ewan was no exception, like most, he was a little cautious to start with. Not that I blame him… I mean…. I would be too,  if I was presented with a giant cupcake and told so smash it and make mess all whilst in someone else’s house! We spend so much time cleaning up our babies and making sure they are clear from bogies, and the remains of dinner that when we want them to get messy, they kinda look at us funny.

So….. here are my favourite shots from Ewan’s cake smash, Enjoy xEwan's Birthday Cake Smash (more…)

Finley’s Deployment mini shoot

by

Being an RAF family, I totally understand what it is like when a loved one goes away. I have also seen the other side, when I served in the Royal Air Force I spent 6 months away so I know how it feels to miss family back home. There are always young children around me who are missing parents who are away serving the country and I wanted to do something to help them out. something fun that would take their minds of Daddy or Mummy just for a little while. I came up with Deployment mini photoshoots. Any way my first taker was this gorgeous little lad, Finley,  who had the biggest smile I’ve seen for a while. We had loads of fun on both of his photoshoots and I have been told that his dad, who is away at the moment, think’s the pictures are great! Here are my favourites. Enjoy xx (more…)
