If you hadn’t guessed, I love my job. And babies. And cake.

So why a cake smash to celebrate a first birthday??? I love them because of the little ones reactions: the curiosity, the sticky fingers and toes, the facial expressions, their attempts to share the delicious treat with family, the unexpected reactions (shock, horror, out of control cake destruction).

But it doesn’t have to be cake. It could be a strawberry shortcake, pancakes & whipped cream, watermelon, or forget food and offer a palette of paint, play dough, or another favourite sensory experience. If you know you want to do something special but have no idea what, email me: I always have ideas (just ask my husband or Session Coordinator Brenda, both of whom have been known to look on with fear when I declare ‘so I was thinking….’). For now I will leave you with delicious cake, pig tails, and a very sweet baby girl who just turned one.
