I have two options for a first birthday session
STUDIO CAKE SMASH
What is included: I have custom made themes available so each setup is unique. I provide decorations, props and baby cake smash outfit.
What to expect: I take a variety of portrait photos of baby including the use of props in both cake smash outfit and outfit baby arrives in. I take a few photos with parents and siblings. Cake smash part is done last. I also include siblings for cake smash part right at the end.
OUTDOOR FIRST BIRTHDAY
This session is more of a family photoshoot. I bring along props like a crate, bubbles and number one letters for 1 year old portraits. I ask parents to bring along a big bunch of helium balloons.
Optional: You can include a cake if you want to make it an outdoor cake smash but this will take time away from family photo part.
(Most successful shoots with a 1 year old are scheduled 9:30AM or 10AM or just after a nap)
ALL outdoor shoots are done during the golden hour (approximately 1 hour before sunset)
I have a list of specific locations I use that compliment my style of work. I have park locations both Helderberg & Cape Town side. I show clients previous work at specific locations to help them to choose according to their personal taste and area preference.
I offer styling advice as to which outfits to choose to get the best look for your photo shoot. I also have a collection of outfits and headbands available for use for young children (especially girls clothes) at no extra cost.
