I've been photographing Ted since he was a newborn and seeing him back in the studio for his first birthday was really special. A photoshoot is an amazing way to celebrate such an important milestone and something you, your child and your family & friends will be grateful to you for doing in the coming years. Not to mention it sorts our birthday and Christmas presents for that year - photo prints for everyone? Oh yes!
The workflow varies from session to session but typically for a first birthday cake smash session you can expect the following:
Portraits in an outfit of your choice or from the studio wardrobe
Optional portraits with parents
Portraits in a plain white baby-grow with wooden toys/blanket/bed set up - use of the studio's little white dressing gown
The messy part - cake smash fun
An optional bath splash at the end
This sounds like a lot but in reality just over an hour and we will have completed it all. It's very important for me to keep the sessions enjoyable for your baby and not to push them.
You're also welcome to bring any special toys that you would like featured in a photo.
Following the session you will receive an online gallery with all of the photos, you can then choose your favourite 10 which are included in the session and they will be sent back edited and high res with print release so you can download/share/print as you wish. There will also be the option to purchase additional digital images and a variety of prints.
I usually take bookings a few months in advance and all I require is a 25% deposit to secure the booking.
