Ava's First Birthday

This week I had the absolute pleasure of shooting little Ava's First Birthday cake smash. She arrived with mum Julia and the theme was afternoon tea. Ava had the prettiest eyes I've ever seen and looked gorgeous in a grey and pink floral dress. 

We started with a mini shoot as the picture shows above and Ava was brilliant, sussing me out throughout. She has such a lovely relationship with her mum which was obvious throughout the whole session. Before we did the cake smash we gave her her china tea set to play with which she loved. 

After Ava was cleaned up I was conscious that I wasn't able to get many good images of Julia and Ava together so I asked Julia if she had time to go into the garden to shoot a few more. Really happy we did this as we got some lovely images that really show the bond between the two.
