Poppy’s Cake Smash - Keighley
I first met the diva that is Poppy in late 2018, when I photographed them for the Butterfly Wishes Network.
You see, Poppy has hydrocephalus, and wasn’t expected to make it to her first birthday. But just after, her specialists were amazed at her latest scan, and she’s showing them all who’s boss!
After arriving in a dinky dress, posing on my new baby beds, we got Poppy changed into a super sweet unicorn-adorned romper. I must admit, I didn’t even think about the horn fitting on her beautiful head, but it stayed on for a few photos!
Dad put her behind the cake, and we waited to see what happened. Some babies are scared of the cake, others get right into smashing it.. most play tentatively to start.
After lots of cakey smiles, Poppy decided that cake on her hands was eeewwwww, but that her feet deserved to be smothered in buttercream.
We thought it best to give her a bath, it didn’t go down well, but look how happy she was after!
