Ethan Smash The Cake

Ethan celebrated his first birthday with a smash the cake photo shoot taken by his daddy.

It was a slow start with Ethan choosing to pick the chocolate balls off the top of the cake instead of digging in, but once he'd been shown the way (by his chocolate loving mummy of course), he really enjoyed some yummy chocolate cake! The shades really topped things off.

Ethan loves to laugh and smile and he duly entertained us during this photo shoot. 

Of course a bath was needed straight after, but as Ethan loves his baths, I think this was close to being Ethan's perfect day!

It's amazing how quickly a year goes, Ethan has transformed in front of our eyes into a wonderful little boy, who brings us joy each and every day. 

Here's hoping that the next year will see even more fun, laughter and happiness with our little boy.

Lily - 6 Months

I loved Lily's portrait experience, those big blue eyes are just mesmerising, I could have spent all day photographing her. While those big blue eyes are so beautiful I still love my monochrome photos, they offer a real timeless quality that I just can't get enough of at the minute. Here are 4 of my favourites from the portrait experience.  

Lily turned 6 months old when I shot her portrait experience; having my own son around a similar age as Lily, I can't believe the change in him just a few months later. I'm so pleased I was able to captured Lily at this age and I hope her photos last her a lifetime. 

As part of my new year resolution, to share more of my photos, I'll be posting loads more photos to my blog in the coming weeks, I hope you enjoy.
