Ethan is ONE, time for cake!

Yesterday we celebrated Ethan’s first birthday. It’s been a year already! A year of dirty diapers, formula making, food pureeing, hair pulling, crying, learning & constantly adjusting my annoyance threshold so I don’t completely lose my mind.
BUT it has also been a whole year of new love, laughs, joys & every other positive thought & feeling you can associate with having a baby.
Ethan has enriched our lives in so many ways. His arrival gave Ashley the title of “new dad”, he made Tyson a big brother & I became a mother of two. He has also given me another opportunity at cracking this whole mommy thing.

Watching Ethan grow & reach his various milestones has been quite exciting & now we’ve reached what some think is the most important – the one year mark – just typing it has me bursting with pride. And what better way to celebrate such a big occasion than with cake!

With the ever growing cake smash trend & my recently found confidence in my own photography skills there was no doubt that I was going to do a cake smash session with Ethan. After discovering the gorgeous local brand, Tiny Tribe Kids, I decided to centre the theme around Linda’s gorgeous hand drawn apparel. I took to Pinterest which always has an endless amount of inspiration on almost anything you can possibly think of & here is the result…

Ethan’s Outfit – Tiny Tribe Kids

Feather Headdress – Autumn Peaches Props

Cake – Pam’s Homemade Treats

Backdrop & Floordrop Printing – Digital Print Xpress


To end off the celebrations we headed to North Beach for some outdoor fun followed by a nice dinner with family.

I don’t need to tell you that Ethan enjoyed his day, that happy, smiley face says it all.
