Ribble Valley & Lancashire Wedding and Family Photographer.
I have been lucky enough to follow Riley’s first year of life. Her parents booked my ‘watch me grow’ package before Riley was born. That meant they had a newborn session, a sitter session when she was around 6 months and a smash & splash session for her first birthday. Their car must know its way from Clitheroe to my place by now.
Anyway, earlier this week, the big day arrived. It was Riley’s first birthday! Her first year has gone so quickly. It feels like only a couple of months ago I was doing her newborn shoot! I had bought a new tutu and I couldn’t wait to test it out on her. Her parents had brought along a unicorn cake. It matched my theme perfectly.
For the first time, Riley was a bit dubious about her photo shoot. She was looking at us like we were bonkers when we were telling her to bash the cake! Her Mummy got involved and showed her what need to be done. Seconds later, she was loving it. That cake went everywhere! Once I knew I had got the shots I needed, I went to take the cake away. Riley looked gutted that I was taking it from her. Her smile soon came back when she spotted my little tub full of bubble bath. She was especially pleased to see my family of rubber ducks.
Riley has been amazing to work with each of her sessions. She is such a lovely little girl. I hope to see you again in the future.
