This sweet baby girl turned one over the weekend and she celebrated with all her family and friends.
She handled the whole party in style, insisting on drinking from a champagne glass, making sure she tried on everyone's hats and smiling and laughing with anyone who picked her up for a cuddle.
She wasn't too sure how to blow out her birthday candles, but she knew exactly who that cake was for... her dad. She decided he needed feeding and she made sure to dig out the very best bits of her beautifully baked, homemade cake for him!
I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Ava about a month before her birthday, in Greenwich, where I photographed her gorgeous family.
She smiled and laughed the whole way through our session (despite not having had a nap that day) and was just as happy and playful on her big birthday. Ava is just pure joy, I wish her and her lovely family all the very best - she has an exciting second year ahead of her!
