Baby Girls, Girls, Girls!

Baby Girls, Girls, Girls!

Sugar and spice and everything nice…

There was a time when it felt like I was only photographing newborn boys, not that there is anything wrong with that but I was missing the chance to play with headbands and the associated froth that comes with baby girls. Well someone must have heard me as the last six newborns in the studio have all been bouncing baby girls.

Girls on Film

Hold onto your hats, it’s about to get cute!

Baby M

First up was Miss M. Her family don’t want her to be on social media and I respect their wishes just like I did when they bought her big brother to the studio as a baby a few years ago.

That said, I am giving nothing away with this image, and who doesn’t love baby feet?

Baby Mia

Next up was Miss Mia who has not one but two big brothers to look out for her. I had captured her youngest brother’s cake smash so it was lovely to see them again with their new addition.

Newborn photographer, Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

Both of them are totally smitten, that girl is going to be so spoiled!!

Newborn photographer, Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

Whilst they did very well keeping themselves amused during Mia’s two-hour session she took it all in her stride and snoozed away for the most part. How blooming delicious are those cheeks?

Baby Niamh

Next up was Miss Niamh, whose cousin I’d photographed last year so I was recommended to her parents. 🙂

Newborn photographer, Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

As you can see she was the best Christmas present ever for her mum and dad. I try and include one of these Vintage Scale composites for all of my newborn clients as it’s a cute way to record all the birth details and can make a great Announcement/Thank You card.

Newborn photographer, Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

Miss Niamh was also the first baby to try out my Session Onesie. Designed for Photographers it covers the nappy better than normal onesies and is great for the ‘mugshots’ I do at the end of the session. I love these pared-down simple black and white shots so much.

Baby Thea

Ohhh emm geeee! Miss Thea or Teddy as she’s nicknamed is my good friend’s new little one. Never in the history of newborns will a baby be more photographed than this one! I can’t wait for babysitting duties so I can whisk her into the studio! Over and over again!

Newborn photographer, Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

As you can see mum and dad are totally smitten with this long-awaited bundle of cuteness.

Newborn photographer, Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

She was gifted a matching Foo’s t-shirt to her daddy’s so I had to have them twinning. If you look closely you can see she also has tattoo sleeves on to match her daddy. I wonder which really cool friends gifted the sleeves (oh that’s right it was Mr JB and I!).

Newborn photographer, Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

With a nickname like Teddy, this had to happen. I only hope she doesn’t hate me when she’s eighteen! Still by that point I will have probably taken millions of pictures of her!

Baby Isabella

Miss Isabella came in with a shock of wonderful black hair. She also came to the shoot with a big brother who was very excited about his new role.

Newborn photographer, Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

He looks proud as punch, doesn’t he?

I also got to try out one of my new for 2022 props with Miss Isabella. A little boho bed.

Newborn photographer, Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

So many great ideas for this prop going forward.

Baby Ellie

Finally last week I met Miss Ellie who also had lots of hair (must be a winter baby thing?).

Newborn photographer, Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

Mum bought this cute outfit as soon as she knew she was having a baby girl. I always ask parents if they have any outfits with them they want to put their baby in. Miss Isabella seemed quite pleased with herself in this outfit judging by that grin!

Newborn photographer, Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

Some babies sleep through their entire session and some, like Miss Ellie, stay awake so they don’t miss out on any of the fun. I always reassure parents that we will get lovely images either way. Here we tried to give Miss Ellie some sheep to count but that didn’t send her off to the land of nod!

I’ve loved having all these gorgeous girls in the studio but I’m ready for some baby boys too. So come on, where are all my boys at?

 

Studio Sessions – Mugshots

Studio Sessions – Mugshots

“When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes. When you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their soul!” – Ted Grant

I love black and white photography. Photographers like Ansel Adams and Tim Booth are huge inspirations for me. Black and white is emotive, stripped back, and stands the test of time as a true classic.

Fine, But What The Heck Are Mugshots?

Well, the official definition is:

Definition of Mugshots

Clearly, I am not taking pictures of babies for police records!! Can you imagine? When babies go bad!! When shooting newborns and first-year milestone sessions at Grow with Me sessions I have always converted some of the images into black and white. Then I was watching two of my favourite American newborn photography trainers on a course. They were talking about images they take of babies at the end of a session. They are taken on a white background of awake babies from just above the nipple with lots of negative space. I was in love! They nicknamed their ‘process’ baby mugshots (they called them something far more beautiful and professional to their clients).

I knew I had to put my own spin on them and start offering them to clients at each newborn session. But I also thought they would be cool at Grow with Me sessions to show how their little features change and develop over their first year. But I couldn’t think of a good professional name for them. So Mugshots they stayed!

BabyMugshots

At the end of the session, babies are stripped of wraps, outfits, and accessories down to their nappys.

Falkirk baby photographer - JB Moments Photography

This was master Brooks and I just love the face he is pulling at me. If this were my child this would be framed huge in my house. Heck, I might still do that anyway!!

Falkirk baby photographer - JB Moments Photography
Ohhhhhhh Matron!

Master Zachary was giving me some real expressions during his session. I think he is doing a great Kenneth Williams impression here!

Not So Newborn

Falkirk baby photographer - JB Moments Photography

When Miss Corran came in to see me at 6 months I had to capture her like this as well. After all this is the only time double chins like this are seen as cute!

The training course I was watching advised keeping the hands at the baby’s sides so it was just their little heads and shoulders but I like the hands as well and just let the littles express themselves.

At Grow with Me Sessions

4 Months

Falkirk baby photographer - JB Moments Photography

Never mind hands, Miss Emilia wanted her feet in the shot as well! When you look this stinking cute then why not! I’m all for it. This one gave me all the heart eyes.

8 months

Falkirk baby photographer - JB Moments Photography

Now their little personalities are developing. Master Findlay was reacting to his daddy’s singing/rapping here!

Falkirk baby photographer - JB Moments Photography

Miss Holly who also featured in my last blog about first birthdays, (because that’s how behind on my blogging I am), rocked her third Grow with me Session mugshots. I just adore the way she is playing with her hair in this image.

Falkirk baby photographer - JB Moments Photography

Mugshots don’t just have to be about the smiles and the silly faces. I capture all the emotions for parents. Including when Miss Cora decided she’d had enough. Am I mean for loving this one? It’s another I want to print.

Not Just For Baby’s

I also offer Mugshots for Pets.

How cute is my boy Ernie here? Don’t say I’m biased, this image made it to the top 10% in the world Shoot & Share photography competition!

So there you have it, and not one of these has appeared on police records so far (although the jury is still out on the last one)!

Studio Sessions – First Birthday Celebrations

Studio Sessions – First Birthday Celebrations

Every birthday counts…especially the first.

I don’t know about you but I love a good birthday celebration.  I love the cake, I love the balloons, I love the bubbles… Luckily at JB Moments Photography, you can have all three!

The Smart Pictures

Before the birthday boy or girl gets introduced to what they are smashing (usually cake, but can be doughnuts, fruit, spaghetti, etc) I like to get some nice portrait images. You know the ones grandma might like.

First birthday shoot by JB Moments Photography

Some, like Miss Lyla, opt for a non smash n splash first birthday shoot and so we get to have fun with outfit and backdrop changes.

First birthday shoot by JB Moments Photography

If the little one brings older siblings with them I like to get them in front of the camera as well. I was particularly in love with Miss Lyla’s crown that she had no issue wearing.

First birthday shoot by JB Moments Photography
Where’s my cake, lady! I was promised cake!

Master Caleb also bought his big brother with him but I had to share this serious image him! Mum has asked for a ‘jungle theme’ and I fell in love with the palm leaf banner I managed to source.

First birthday shoot by JB Moments Photography

Miss Holly’s theme on the other hand was ‘pink and girly’. I love how this one turned out. Holly’s Smash n Splash session was the final part of her Grow with Me year of photoshoots.

Let Them Smash Cake

Once the ‘formal’ portraits are done it’s time to reveal the cake (or other smashable items). I always provide a wooden spoon as well so that the little one has something to bash the cake with if they prefer.

Reactions to the cake vary from huge enthusiasm and diving in headfirst (yes really!) to not at all enamoured and every reaction in between. I would say that both Master Caleb and Miss Holly were somewhere in the middle of the fence when it came to the cake.

First birthday shoot by JB Moments Photography

Master Caleb’s cake was caramelised biscuit flavour and once he got into it enjoyed feeding himself with the wooden spoon!

First birthday shoot by JB Moments Photography

Miss Holly’s cake was a vanilla, white choc and plum jam concoction that Daddy seemed most excited by. Holly was quite a delicate picker of her cake. However, she still managed to cover her tutu, hands, feet, and face in the cake!

Birthday Bubbles

Now at my age, the only type of birthday bubbles I am interested in are the ones that pop out of a bottle with a name like Dom Perignon!

But when you are one, the best sort of bubbles are the ones that come in a tub you can splash around in. Throw in some rubber ducks and a bubble machine and you are in one-year-old heaven.

First birthday shoot by JB Moments Photography

I mean, just look at Master Caleb. He is living his best life right there! For mum and dad, it is also a chance to get rid of some of the cake debris that has worked its way into most orifices by now. So it’s a win-win!

First birthday shoot by JB Moments Photography

And despite Miss Holly having the biggest, bluest, roundest eyes that I love to photograph. I absolutely adore this image of her enjoying herself.

And if you can’t enjoy yourself on your birthday, when can you?

 

Studio Sessions – Family!

Family

“Rejoice with your family in the beautiful land of life.” – Albert Einstein

As well as lots of yummy babies I have had the honour of capturing lots of family images recently too. These types of sessions mean so much to me because I know there is usually a reason for them and as such, they create a beautiful memory for the family in them.

The Grow with Me One

I love doing Grow With Me sessions as I get to see how cute bambinos grow and develop over their first year. Miss Cora came in for her 2nd session and I just had to include her big brothers in the pictures.

Family Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

I love how much they dote on her. She even has a cool nickname ‘Baby C’. That’s what being in a family is all about. This little lady is always going to have her big bros looking out for her.

The Turning One One (!)

Little Miss Erin was about to turn one and mum wanted to celebrate with a family portrait.

Family Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

Such a cute family. One day, when she is much older. Erin will look at these pictures and get all the warm and fuzzies. Just like her mum and dad will when she is in her difficult teenage years and they remember what a precious little dot she was!

The We Are So Proud Of Him One

This family have all their kid’s graduation pictures in frames proudly displayed. Just because their youngest son’s graduation was cancelled due to C-19 they still wanted to mark his moment. The gown was still hired and I did my best to recreate the graduation images his sisters had taken.

Family Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

I love that this will be hung in pride of place in the family home. Bonus points that he graduated from the Univerity all the best people graduate from, Stirling 😉

The Baby Is Flying The Nest One

This was a very personal session for me. I gifted a Family Photoshoot at my local virtual Christmas Fair last year. It was a prize draw with all the proceeds going to local family charities. I used a random number spinner to generate the winners to keep things all above board but I was delighted when my good friends won!

I’ve been wanting to shoot this family for ages. Dad is an over 6-foot mountain of a man and Mum is so tiny and petite. How she managed to give birth to twin boys and then another son is beyond me! I mean I’m guessing they didn’t appear as big as they are today but even still!!!

It was a poignant moment for them as well as their youngest son was flying the nest off to training college.

Family Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

We had a blast in the studio and I think that comes across in the images. To me, if grown-ass boys can still hug their parents and come along to a session like this, then they have been bought up right!

Family Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

I love how mum’s smile stretches from ear to ear as she is getting loved on by her sons. Images like this are important to me. Showing the mum at the heart of the family as all too often she is behind the camera capturing the images.

Family Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

I smile because you’re my brother. I laugh because there is nothing you can do about it.

Studio Session – Adam’s Cake Smash (with added Pug)

Studio Session – Adam’s Cake Smash (with added Pug)

I said it was a week of Cake Smashes in my last blog and I wasn’t kidding! This time with added pug (well two added pugs actually)!

Is There Anything More Dapper Than A Bowtie?

Before the cake comes out I usually try to get some smart portraits for mum and dad to mark the milestone of their baby turning one. Before the carnage starts!

Fun child photography by JB Moments Photography

Master Adam was no exception with his super-smart bowtie and braces. So what is more dapper than a bowtie?

Fun child and pet photography by JB Moments Photography

When your pug brothers also put their bowties on and join in!!! Meet Hector (fawn and black) and Hugo (black). Almost giving Adam a run for his money in the cuteness stakes.

I love it when parents ask for something a little different. When Adam’s mum asked if their two pugs could be in some of the pictures I couldn’t say YES quick enough. I love all dogs but I have a particular fondness for the squishy-faced breeds. Pugs are just the natural comics of the doggy world and these two were no exception. These three dudes were so cute together.

Cake Smash Time

With Hector and Hugo off for a walk, it was time for the main event. The cake!

Fun child photography by JB Moments Photography

Adam was such a happy wee guy and with mum’s help thought that cake smashing was hysterical.

Fun child photography by JB Moments Photography

He was giggling and chortling his whole way through the smash.

Fun child photography by JB Moments Photography

I love this image, he is holding some of his cake up triumphantly! Meanwhile, the clean-up crew has arrived slightly prematurely eager to help! And just look at that toothy grin. Priceless!

Bubble Time

After all that cake, the only place any self-respecting birthday dude could go is the bathtub!

Fun child photography by JB Moments Photography

Adam was having the best time as you can see. He settled into the tin tub, stuck his feet out, and got ready for some bubble fun!

Fun child photography by JB Moments Photography

Mum did a brilliant job operating the bubble machine. Just look at the pure joy on that face.

Sessions like this mean so much to me. They are all about creating memories. Mum, Dad, Hector, Hugo, and most especially Adam all had a great time. Every time they look through the Photo Book they ordered with the shoot they will be reminded of how much fun it was.

Meanwhile, my run of working with children and animals continues as in a couple of blogs time you will see how a 12-day new baby girl bought her big bulldog brother with her to her first photoshoot!

 

Studio Session – Gregor’s Cake Smash

Studio Session – Gregor’s Cake Smash

I can’t believe this session took place over two weeks ago in my studio and I’m only now just getting the chance to blog about it! Trust me, after 5 months not being able to do anything but twiddle my thumbs I am delighted to have the problem of being too busy shooting to write! But the world needs to see this cuteness 🙂

Cutest Mummy Ever

I first met Master Gregor at my Halloween Mini Sessions last year. It was his first Halloween and he was dressed up as a mummy. From the moment I saw his huge blue eyes and kissable cheeks I knew I was a gonner. A fully paid-up member of his fan club. Then he came back for a Christmas mini in a matching Xmas jumper with mum and dad and…be still my heart!

You can imagine how over the moon I was therefore when his mum got in touch during lockdown to book a Cake Smash n Splash for his first birthday. Not only would I get my cuteness fix again but during the bleak lockdown months to know people still wanted to book my services made my heart sing.

A Wee Bit Late

Okay, okay, by the time lockdown actually finished I’d missed Gregor’s birthday by about 2 months but what’s a few months between friends?

Fun child photography by JB Moments Photography

We made sure to capture all the hats and outfits that Gregor had for his birthday.

Fun child photography by JB Moments Photography

Before he could rip them off!

Cake Time

After a couple of outfit changes including some birthday PJ’s it was finally time to get down to his onesie and the serious business of cake smashing!

Fun child photography by JB Moments Photography

Gosh just look at those eyelashes, should be illegal!

At first Master Gregor was quite bemused by the cake and what to do with it. After a few delicate pickings and tastings, he got into the swing of things.Fun child photography by JB Moments Photography

With the help of the wooden spoon, his hand, and his feet Gregor soon started to make short work of the cake.

Cake Smash or Set Smash?

Fun child photography by JB Moments Photography

In fact, Gregor got so into the smashing he included the set as well. Totally worth cleaning hundreds and thousands out of wooden crates (they get everywhere!) when you get smiles like this. Have I mentioned how cute this little dude is?

Rubber Ducky

It was certainly a good way to put the new ‘wipe clean’ vinyl backdrop I had invested in during lockdown through its paces. It wiped spotless by the way for all those Mrs Hinches among you! It was also the first outing for the new tub backdrop I’d also invested in. After a few teething problems, getting it to stay up (now fixed with a cunning solution – thanks Mr JB) I was rather pleased with the effect.

Fun child photography by JB Moments Photography

Master Gregor also stopped eating the little rubber ducks long enough for me to capture the adorable bubble beard his mum has fashioned for him.

I’m not sure who enjoys these sessions more. The Parents? The kids? Or Me? Spoiler alert, it’s always me!

If my first week back was all Grow with Me sessions. My second was all about the Cake Smash so watch out for more blogs – including one with pugs!!

Studio Shoot – 21 month old Max

Studio Shoot – 21-month-old Max

It was supposed to take a year…

When Master Max’s parents bought him into my studio almost two years ago as a newborn baby they signed up for my 12-month Grow with Me plan. Little did they realise that almost 2 years later I’d still be trying to finish it for them! But then none of us knew what was around the corner!

Where’s the cake?

Usually, we end the 4 sessions with a Cake Smash and Splash to celebrate turning 1. Due to all the lockdowns falling just at the wrong times for Master Max we had his first birthday smash for his 3rd session instead.

That face!

Baby Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

Regular visitors to my social media pages will know that I use this image from Max’s newborn shoot a lot. His little grumpy face staring right at me makes me chuckle every single time.

Baby Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

Fast forward almost two years and he can still nail me with that ‘I am not amused face’.

Daddy’s Boy

Mum couldn’t make this final session so it was a lad’s day out.

Baby Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

Complete with a Happy Meal on the way home. These guys know how to have fun and party.

Bossing it

Baby Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

Despite being a curious and confident 21-month old Max was still happy to sit still (briefly) for a few images. I just love his nonchalant pose in this one. Total Boss!

Now for something racey…

I have a shiny red toy sportscar in the studio that is perfect for sessions like this. I kept it hidden under a sheet at first as I knew once Max saw it that would be it. And I was right! He uncovered it and we were off to the races.

Baby Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

This is probably my favourite image from Max’s session. I love his expression, his outfit, the colours, everything!

Finally, Max’s Grow with Me Photo Book is being produced at my professional lab. It’s only 9 months late, but, you know what? It’s going to be totally worth the wait.

Studio Session – 5 Month Old Findlay

Studio Session – 5 Month Old Findlay

The Last Before Lockdown

Those of you that read my last blog know that my first week back in the studio has been all about catching up with Grow with Me sessions that are overdue. Master Findlay was my last newborn shoot before lockdown so we were only just over a month late welcoming him back to his 4-month Grow with Me shoot.

RainbowsFamily  Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

Rainbows featured heavily in Findlay’s newborn studio shoot and his mum and dad kept that going with a very cute romper suit this time. I couldn’t resist adding a faint rainbow above them in this image.

Tummy Time

Modelling one of my organic cotton onesies from The Simple Folk, Findlay gave us a masterclass in pushing up whilst on his tummy.

Baby Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

I think he is going to be super strong, just like his daddy!

Superbaby

Speaking of super-strong, dad turned up in his Superman T-shirt and when mum was showing me the clothes she had bought for Findlay she pulled out a Superbaby onesie. I very nearly squealed with delight 🙂 I love it when we get a bit of twinning going on!

Baby Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

I mean, come on, does it get any cuter than that right there? I don’t think so! Talk about the perfect image for dad’s first father’s day. I think you can tell that this image gives me all the feels!!!

Mugshots

If you thought Superbaby was cute, well then wait until you see Findlay’s mugshots! This dude has ALL the expressions going on. I’ve picked out three of my favourites to share with you but I could have shared many, many more.

Baby Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography
Hey camera lady, how you doin’?
Baby Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography
I’m getting fed up with all this modelling now!
Baby Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography
How dare you chuckle at my double chin! You’ve got way more camera lady!

Absolutely priceless, I love these way more than I should. Sorry, not sorry! I can’t wait to see this little dude in the studio for his 8-month Grow with Me session.

Studio Session – 7 month old Holly

Studio Session – 7 month old Holly

Open for Business!

JB Moments Photography  studio is finally re-opened after what has felt like the longest 5-month lockdown EVER. Man, it is so good to be back doing what I love again 🙂

It has also meant that I have a backlog of Grow with Me sessions to schedule back in. After a newborn session the baby comes back into the studio at 4 months, 8 months and then ends with a Cake Smash and Splash for their first birthday. First back through the studio doors was Miss Holly.

Holly isn’t 4 months?

Holly’s 2nd Grow with Me session was at 7 months thanks to Covid-19.

Family Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

She didn’t seem to bothered though. Such a happy, smiley little girl. A real credit to her parents who are totally smitten with her. As was I by the end of our session.

Onesie Funsie

During lockdown I invested in some beautiful onesies from The Simple Folk in each of the Grow with Me session sizes to provide a cohesive look in the final photo book.

Baby Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

Holly rocked the cream terry towelling one and particularly liked the matching knee socks. She couldn’t keep her hands off them!

Baby Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography
Pretty in Pink

She also looked stunning in the pink one that we accessorised with a tutu because when one can, one should always accessorise with a tutu!

Items Models Own

Holly’s mum had picked out some gorgeous outfits as well like this beautiful navy and white dress with matching headband.

Baby Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

Perfect for summer parties!

She also had a lovely pink and white gingham dress that she was very happy to model for us.

Baby Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

Mugshots

All too soon my first studio session this year (!) was coming to an end. But before I could let Miss Holly out of my clutches there was just one more set of images to take. The infamous mugshots. I can’t wait to see how all her little features and expressions change over her first year in these.

Baby Photographer near Falkirk - JB Moments Photography

This one is my absolute favourite from all the mugshot images I delivered and from the whole session. I would hang this as a huge print in my house and she’s not even related to me! I just absolutely love the expression I caught on her wee face.

I can’t wait to see Miss holly in the studio again. In the meantime lots of other lovely Grow with Me Sessions to deliver and blog about.

I love my job 🙂

Cake Smash, Cake Smash, Cake Smash

Cake Smash

Last week was a smashing week in the studio as I had not one, not two but three Cake Smash and Splashes to shoot! The cleaning crew (aka Ernie one of my dogs) were working overtime!

First up Miss Millie was back for her final Grow with Me session of her first year. Then Miss Grace who was gifted the Cake Smash shoot for her first birthday by her gran. So she would have an experience to look back on rather than more plastic toys (so cool). And finally, Master Callum who I’d last seen as an itty bitty newborn came in to celebrate his first birthday.

The Formals

I like to take some pictures whilst the little one is still clean so that they have some images they won’t hate when they are 18!

Cake Smash and Tub Splash Photography by JB Moments Photography

Miss Millie was tutu cute in her sparkly tutu and crown.

Cake Smash and Tub Splash Photography by JB Moments Photography

Master Callum looked so very dapper in his waistcoat and bowtie.

Cake Smash and Tub Splash Photography by JB Moments Photography

Miss Grace opted for some pale pink skinny jeans and a very on-trend puff-sleeved shirt.

Time for Cake

I always say to parents that kids don’t always react the way you want them to when they are presented with the cake. Especially if they haven’t really tried cake before.

I needn’t have worried with these three cake Olympians though!

The many faces of Millie

Miss Millie went through a full range of emotions during her cake smash.

Cake Smash and Tub Splash Photography by JB Moments Photography

First, there was happiness.

Cake Smash and Tub Splash Photography by JB Moments Photography

Then there was anger.

Cake Smash and Tub Splash Photography by JB Moments Photography

And finally hilarity!

Callum

Master Callum changed into his Friends t-shirt. Apparently, like Joey, he doesn’t like to share food.

Cake Smash and Tub Splash Photography by JB Moments PhotographyHe sure likes cake though.

Cake Smash and Tub Splash Photography by JB Moments PhotographyGreat big handfuls of it!

Cake Smash and Tub Splash Photography by JB Moments PhotographyAnd feetfuls!

Grace

Miss Grace also very much enjoyed cake.

Cake Smash and Tub Splash Photography by JB Moments Photography

She was having a great time.

Cake Smash and Tub Splash Photography by JB Moments PhotographyNo need for spoons when you can eat it straight off the stand.

Miss Grace also liked putting her feet in the cake.

Cake Smash and Tub Splash Photography by JB Moments Photography

And was very proud of herself once she’d completely trashed the cake!

Splish Splash in the tub

With the exception of Miss Grace who really wasn’t feeling the bath the tin bathtub was filled with bubbles. The bubble machine was switched on and the rubber ducks were drafted in.

Cake Smash and Tub Splash Photography by JB Moments Photography

Miss Mille thought the splash session was hilarious.

Cake Smash and Tub Splash Photography by JB Moments Photography

Master Callum got himself all in a lather!

I love doing these shoots. I’m not sure who ends up laughing the most. The parents or me.

🙂
