The thing I love most about my job, is watching families grow. From bumps to babies, and one baby to more, it's so lovely to see how much life can change - and how fast these babies grow up!
It's an honour to be chosen as your photographer, and it's an even better feeling when my clients return with their next baby!
I first met Ellis' family before he ever was. His big brother Oliver was turning one, and he came to me for his cake smash session back in 2016, and was a total character!
This time Oliver brought his baby brother, Ellis, all the way from Essex (!!!) to me for his cake smash and my goodness he rocked it!
We started with some sibling pictures before we broke out the balloons and cake.
Ellis loved his cake so much he decided the fastest way to eat it was not to use his hands, but to face plant his birthday cake instead! Yum!
Once a large portion of the cake had been consumed (and smeared eeeeeverywhere!) it was splash time in the bath tub... except Ellis wasn't finished!
Most babies love splashing in my tub, watching the bubbles flying everywhere... but Ellis was busy reaching and picking up all the crumbs left over and munching them while he had a leisurely soak!
I can't resist a squishy baby bum (I mean, who can?) so once we'd got Elliot dried up, we risked a few shots nappy free to make the most of all of his rolls and dimples.
It was such a lovely session full of giggles!
Happy first birthday, Ellis!
