Emilia’s birthday photo shoot

On Saturday we met the adorable Emilia for her first birthday smash and splash cake shoot.  I know I always say “the adorable Emilia” but she really was super cute.

She arrived with Mummy and Daddy looking super cute in a loverly denim jean jacket and almost instantly started smiling at me. This never stopped until the very end when the smiles turned to tears……

We started pretty much straight away with Emilia and her birthday cake. She was a typical little girl and politely picked and are the cake 🍰 but after a little gentle persuasion she started to have some messy fun and all the time holding that happy smile of hers. 😃

After we all thought she had eaten enough cake we cleaned top and got the bathtub ready. Nice warm water and our sensitive bubble solution “not tested on animals” and she was away again.

She proper loved the bath and splashed and giggled and even got herself excited too. It was beautiful to watch her having so much fun and Mummy and Daddy giggling away too.

Once we were all swimming in water, I kid you not haha. Mummy took Emilia out off the bath to our lovely warm area with soft white towels and a changing mat area. She really did not want to stop and started crying, then screaming haha she loved her time with us. Thankfully Mummy and Daddy calmed her down a treat.

A most successful cake shoot 😍
