I really love dogs so when this family asked me to include their gorgeous pet in their outdoor photo session to mark little one's first birthday I was absolutely thrilled. The connection between the little boy and his dog was just beautiful and it was a pleasure to see his little face light up whenever they were together. In fact, the only thing that may have captured his attention more was the cake mum produced towards the end of the session! I generally don't do 'cake smashes' as I work on location rather than in a studio but I'm all for it in a natural setting. We even found a little hay bale which worked as a wonderful table for little one to enjoy his first taste of the sweet and sticky stuff. Oh and there was no way pooch was going to miss out - he also enjoyed his very own dog friendly cupcake!
