I have always loved the idea of a cake smash shoot for a first birthday. Bright colours, froofy tutus and cake? What’s not to love? I think they’re absolutely fantastic when done well, and when my sister offered to buy Eden a photoshoot for her birthday I booked up a local photographer immediately.
It always makes me laugh when I hear someone say that they or someone else is “just” a parent. JUST a parent? Personally, I think every parent is a super hero. We were contacted by npower and Mumsnet to talk about our very own superpowers, so I gave some thought to my personal skills.
