I wanted to provide a session for parents that wanted to celebrate their child’s first birthday but did not want to do a cake smash session. This type of session is currently a huge hit internationally. I love the idea of a paint session as the canvas that the parents receive afterwards will always be a wonderful keepsake of their child’s first birthday (and first artwork). I found that Jonah (the little boy in the photos) immediately knew what to do with the paint where as with cake smashes, a lot of the kids refuse to have anything to do with the cake or need a lot of encouragement to even touch the cake and icing.
Parents however, be warned, dress your child in something that can be messed on and that they probably wont be able to wear again as it does get messy!
