Joshua turns ONE / Cake Smash – Pretoria Family Photographer

October 6, 2016

Cake Smash ~ Pretoria Family Photographer/Appelliefie

We had so much fun with this little one’s first EVER experience with a CAKE!!

Joshua turns One years old*

(or should I say: this precious little boy turns one years young) today!

And how many memories it brings back for the past year. To Capture each moment, milestone and joy of this little baby growing in his first year is so much fun!

Special memories are made when a family grows, and to capture this, is my privilege as well as pleasure!

I love being a photographer, especially a photographer of children and Families. To see the couple come for a maternity session, and then meet the beautiful little newborn baby. With a Newborn Photography Session, it is a wonderful experience for the photographer, but so much more the proud parents! SO to capture the little one in their first year is such a wonderful story to be able to see the growth and development in their life as a family!! To end of the FIRST-YEAR with a fun and enjoyable CAKE SMASH Photoshoot, is just the cherry on the cake 🙂

May each new year bring blessing upon blessing*

You are ONE – and you ARE Special, Blessed and precious!

a special poem, just for your first birthday:


A One-year-old child is so many things –
A tiny discoverer of butterfly wings,
A hugger of Teddies,
A sweet sleepyhead,
And someone to dream for in bright years ahead…
