I first met the very lovely Lemmy at a family shoot in the country park earlier this year, she was a little sweetie so i was delighted when her Mummy got in touch to arrange a cake smash & splash photo shoot for her 1st birthday. Lemmy's Mummy had suggested an autumn/pumpkin theme and between us and Vicki at Smashing Cakes we came up with a set.
Lemmy and her family came along to my new studio on the A59 between Preston and Blackburn, Lancashire all the way from Manchester. Lemmy was feeling happy and we started off with some little portraits which soon got her used to being in the studio, the lights and me :) We moved on to the cake part of the session, you can never really tell how a cake smash is going to go, babies are so different and all react differently to the cake and the textures, some dive straight in whilst others take a while longer to work it all out and some need a little help. Lemmy, well Lemmy was probably the best cake smasher I've photographed in nearly 6 years, she was amazing!! I think we were all a little taken aback by her enthusiasm, there was no stopping her!!
Lemmy had so much fun!!!
Once she had eventually finished with the cake she had a lovely splash in the tub to get clean and ready for the drive home.
Happy 1st Birthday Lemmy!!!
