Riley's family came along to his cake smash session last month, and what a messy one it was!
As usual we started with some family pictures, and pictures of Riley with his older brother and sister - Riley wasn't interested in the slightest, and so I brought out my favourite props in the hopes we could at least keep him on the backdrop long enough to get a couple of snaps!
My stool (a favourite among many babies!) worked for the briefest period, before Riley discovered he could climb off it and escape to raid the prop box ;)
Up next was Bertie, my little red racing car, and Riley loved it so much he even licked the steering wheel! We managed to get a lovely smile out of him though.
I then set up for the cake smash part of the session (my favourite bit!), and then we let Riley loose!
I think there's still chocolate cake hidden somewhere in the studio; that stuff went eeeeverywhere! That's all part of the fun though!
Once the cake had been smashed to smithereens, Riley had a quick splash in my tub in between trying to climb out, and that was his session all finished!
Riley and his family came back for their viewing last week and these are their favourite images from his session, and I hope you like them too!
Happy First Birthday Riley!
