In April last year, Asquith mother-of-two Laura Matrljan was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of just 31 years old. On this day one year ago, she had a double mastectomy and began her treatment to destroy the cancer inside her body. She has experienced the most challenging and gruelling year of her life, but has won the fight against breast cancer and celebrated today with a truly smashing photo shoot. Go Laura!

Wearing a tiara, tutu and t-shirt that says, ‘Yes they’re fake, my real ones tried to kill me’, Laura decided to celebrate the one-year anniversary with a cake smash! Typically done with one-year-old babies, the genius idea for a cake smash reflects Laura’s wicked sense of humour and her incredibly positive attitude that helped her get through the past 12 months.

Laura says: ‘Today marks one year since I said goodbye to my old boobs and the cancer that decided to live inside them. The boobs that nurtured and kept my children alive for the best part of four years, then tried to take me away from them. So to celebrate I decided to have my very own cake smash photo shoot – complete with boobie cake, pink bubbles and lots of laughs. Special thanks to my beautiful and talented sis Jess who once again has outdone herself, and my darling friend Kirsty for helping with my vision and watching for forehead wrinkles. Here’s cheers to many more years, cake, bubbles and laughs to come. Xo’

This shoot completely embodies everything that is awesome about this North Shore mum!
