Growing Up - Pet Cake Smash Photography in the Yarra Valley

Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday dear Chester
Happy Birthday to you!!

So this happened - our baby turned 1! In many ways it's hard to believe it's been a year already, but in other ways, feels strange to think that it was only a year ago when Chester wasn't a part of our lives!

I attempted to do a cake smash shoot with him - as you can see from the photo above, it really didn't go according to plan haha!
Firstly he wasn't interested in doing anything other than laying down next to me, then he knocked down the backdrop I was using! Eventually convinced him the cake wasn't poisoned and it was safe for him to have a taste, but he was extremely cautious about it! The main picture I wanted was him sitting next to the cake, but apparently all his training went out the window on that day and he refused to sit at all lol

We managed one okay photo though and he eventually dug in and enjoyed his cake - which is what was important :)
