Unicorn-themed Pink Glitter Fest Party!
Last Sunday I was invited to capture the first birthday party of a very special client, Miss Arya Dickson (or should that be Princess Arya of House Dickson?).
There was this gorgeous cake from Darrell’s Cakes in Falkirk.
Arya had a great time with her wee buddies at a special birthday version of Hartbeeps. My fave picture from the party was Arya in her fairy wings.
but there was also a picnic, Pom poms, puppets, the sun, wigs, disco balls, parachutes and yes…a giant unicorn!
Arya had a blast and joined in during the whole 2-hour session and then finished up with a cuddle from daddy and a some of that delicious birthday cake.
The next day Arya came into the studio for her Doughnut Smash. She was of course dressed as a unicorn.
Now you may be wondering what a doughnut smash is? Heard of a Cake Smash? A trend that started in the US and has become very popular over here to mark a first birthday. You basically put a massive frosted cake in front of the birthday boy or girl and capture them destroying it and eating it! Great in theory…but, a lot of children are intimidated by the cake and in order to get the ‘shots’ the parents or the photographer often have to smash the cake and smear it on the child. Doesn’t sound like much fun for the little one to me so I discoverd that a big pile of mini doughnuts is much more manageable for their little hands and more fun!
Grow with me
The reason why Arya is a very special client to me, (other than the rather obvious fact that she is such a cutie), is because she was my very first ‘grow with me‘ client and so I’ve had the pleasure of capturing her from 5 weeks new and watch her transform from a baby to a beautiful little girl.
I look forward to capturing more of her moments.
