Way back in the summer I photographed Ayanna's delayed first birthday party. I photographed her as a bump and then newborn so it was brilliant to see her again as a toddler. Her mother had worked hard decorating for the occasion and it looked lovely. Little Ayanna was a bit nonplussed by all the fuss but, with bubbles in hand, we went out into the garden to escape all the preparations inside and Ayanna loved the bubble play.
Her big brother enjoyed the responsibility of being in charge of the bubbles and it was obvious that Ayanna dotes on him.
Ayanna had a change of clothes, as you can see - a real little princess!
Mmm, it tasted good!
Once the cake arrived we took some pictures of the birthday room.
My birthday parties were never this beautiful!
At the end of all the excitement little Ayanna had a much needed sleep.
And then the guests arrived and I left.
