Deedar and his very smart birthday photo shoot

Last week we had a cake smash planned for almost 1 year old Deedar but after a fairly disastrous morning his daddy had to change the shoot until later that evening, We all knew it was going to be hit or miss and unfortunately on the cake from it was a miss.

Thankfully we just turned the session into a portrait shoot and although mummy and daddy had expected a few photos, probably;y not quite this many haha

Deedar was at first a little shy so we took a few with mummy and daddy but then we got to know each other and thanks to Alexa and our little friend “baby shark” we were soon full of smiles.

So despite the fact that Deedar missed out on cake, he certainly never missed out on the smiles and photos.

We will reschedule the cake shoot for another morning when he is not so tired bless him.

Cake shoots always work very well early afternoon just after baby has had a light lunch. You’d think it would work better when they are hungry but babies like familiarity when they are hungry and tired.

Alls well that ends well tho and just look at those smiles,
