Cake Smash or Birthday Sessions

Celebrate your little one's FIRST Birthday!

One Year on . . .   

                   . . . Unbelievable how quick time goes! You can be proud! Your baby turns ONE and that very first birthday needs to be celebrated! 

This session is always a lot of fun for your baby but for you as parents too! We start with a little warm up by taking some timeless portraits of your baby in their first birthday's best outfit followed by a family portrait. By the way siblings are always included otherwise it wouldn't be a proper family portrait! ;-)

Your baby will then move onto the actual cake set. As the baby should be the main focus we believe in simplicity but we will always discuss any colour scheme and decoration ideas with you beforehand. Now the fun can begin and your little one can start to explore the cake, stuff their cute little face and basically smash the cake with or without your help until total destruction.

As this can get quite messy we then wash it all off again in a little bath tub or bowl. Most babies love this part even more and splash around while mum and dad blow some bubbles to add to the fun.

My aim is to capture some super cute expressions and cheeky little smiles for you to treasure forever. Most of our clients choose to frame their favourite portraits from this session. That way you will always be able to look at your little one whether it's in your kitchen, bathroom or where ever you choose to display your child's memories.

Depending on your baby's mood on the day and how willing s/he is to actually join in cannot be guaranteed however I will try my best to get your little sweetheart relaxed and comfortable so s/he can just have some fun and enjoy the session and to create some lovely memories for you to remember that first ever birthday forever.

After the session we will arrange another appointment with you within the following two weeks for you to come back and view the best portraits of your session in your final gallery of at least 25 beautifully enhanced and fully retouched images. During that time you will  decide which package you may want to purchase.

Due to the fact that this type of session is bespoke and customized to your wishes and ideas and to purchase all the necessary decoration including balloons, bunting etc a £49 non refundable retainer is required in order to secure your booking.

You can of course bring your own cake if you prefer but we can also arrange to have one done for you by a local cakemaker for a small extra fee if you wish.          

At no time are you under any obligation to purchase a single image if you don't wish to do so, however if you wish to order just a few images or prints rather than a package, due to the time involved in creating, retouching, processing, ordering and printing etc. there is a minimum order fee of £196 for loose prints.

Digital Collections

Additional Printed Photographs (add on to digital collection ONLY)

With the purchase of digital files you will always have the flexibility to produce your own prints, enlargements and even albums.

However, from our own experience we know that we rarely find the time to actually do something with the digital files and the USB just ends up in a draw somewhere.

We therefore will always provide you with the actual physical photographs of your favourite images and we firmly believe that your beautiful portraits deserve to be displayed around your house using only the best quality products.

In addition to the print you receive within your chosen collection, you can order additional prints of your favourite photos. We offer professional grade prints as standard. The high quality Pro Lab prints can also be upgraded to Fine Art Prints that are mounted onto a board.
