A proper smash for Charlie on his First Birthday 🎂
Charlie's parents Abigail & Adam bought little Charlie along on his actual 1st birthday.
I think I was just excited as them to be honest, ( well after all it is a big milestone and probably the most important one through the eyes of a parent).
Those last twelve months of nurturing, bonding and many sleepless nights, not to mention endless nappy changes and baths too.
Turning one is a great milestone in that more than likely the firsts begin or have already started, the first tooth, the first curl, the first foods and the first steps.
So what better way to celebrate this amazing landmark for any parent than to incorporate a cake smash as close to their baby's 1st birthday.
After setting up ready for the session I anticipated the arrival of a little boy ready with little hands and little feet and of course ready to have fun with lots of mashed up birthday cake with yummy icing and have his photographs taken !
As you can see from the photographs Charlie had an absolute blast!
First getting used to having his photograph taken in ultimately a strange place to him.
Then getting nice posed images before introducing the cake and ultimately the touching part.
The best part getting completely messy with the cake, dipping his fingers in, using the wooden spoon and looking at his proud parents watch every little movement he makes.
Lastly time to get cleaned up and have some splashing fun of course. Complete with bubbles and at a temperature just right, Charlie rinsed away all the traces of his 1st Birthday cake and the smashing great time he had too.
