Your child’s 1st birthday is a huge milestone for you all. At this point your little boy/girl’s personality is really beaming through and it is a wonderful time to capture forever through a professional photography session. I offer three options for you:-
This is becoming increasingly popular and is GREAT FUN for everyone involved (aswell as a little messy!!!). We begin with a ‘birthday outfit’ portrait and move onto the ‘cake smash session’ which involves alot of laughs, giggles and a few adults including me, covered in cake! I then finish off with a ‘bath’ portrait as babies of this age mostly love bathtime – parents are free to add bubbles to the bath etc.. and we have lots of fun, beautiful images and most importantly, a clean happy baby at the end of it!!! – this session typically lasts between 45 minutes to 1 hr 15 minutes, depending on your child.
First Birthday Outdoor Session
This is a beautiful idea for a first birthday milestone. I will join your family at a location of your choice (the woods is very popular) and I capture your 1 year old in all his/her glory. I bring along some props and parents are asked to bring along a change of clothes to add variety to the images. This is a very enjoyable session for both myself, your child and his/her parents aswell as any siblings! Of course, the special 1 year old is the main focus of this session and many of the images are lifestyle images (not posed).
First Birthday Indoor Session
This is a very timeless option and offers beautiful images of your child at this special time. I can offer you a studio session or a session in your home and I always include a few backdrop changes aswell as various props. If this session is in your home, I will also include some lifestyle images of your child in his/her own environment (I follow them around with the camera!) – these are always some of my clients favourite images from the session!
