A First Birthday Photography Experience

Wow – how did that happen? Your little one is turning 1? This is such a huge milestone as you have been through so many firsts as a family during the last 12 months. It is such an exciting occasion and deserves to be celebrated and captured forever!

The essence of our first Birthday photography experience is definitely fun! We have lots of outfits for you to choose from, you can bring your own, or we can do a mix of both. Your session is designed around you. We always love to include mum and dad and siblings too in a few portraits.

It is a true family occasion and we don’t want to miss anyone out! You don’t all need to smash the cake though – we leave that to the Birthday little one! Ending with a lovely warm bath and bubbles makes your experience truly memorable.

Your First Birthday Photography Experience

As easy as 1-2-3...

Step 1 - Booking

We love to celebrate little one’s Birthday as near as possible to their actual Birthday. We suggest booking at least 2 months in advance to ensure we can book the best date for you. Your £49 booking fee secures your studio session date and is credited against your artwork order.

Step 2 - Your Portrait Session

At your first Birthday photography experience we have lots of fun! We say to allow up to 90 minutes in the studio. During this time we capture beautiful portraits of the Birthday boy or girl, with the cake smash and a lovely splash session at the end with a warm bath and bubbles.

Your little-one’s cake is included in your experience and we ask you to confirm that your baby has no known allergies.

Step 3 - Your Cinematic Gallery Presentation

At this appointment, we will book your gallery presentation for about a week after your session. In this presentation you will be able to sit back and enjoy viewing your edited portraits in a beautiful cinematic presentation. What you fall in love with and choose to purchase is totally up to you. Artwork prices start from £179.
