2021 Birthday Portrait Info & Pricing

Your little baby is turning one year old and what better way to celebrate than with a fun photoshoot to document the milestone! I like to keep things simple so when you book a birthday session with me you will receive all of the best high resolution images from our time together as well as print release. 
A 40% non refundable retainer is required at time of booking to secure your session date.

PLEASE NOTE: All birthday sessions are for one child only and do not include sibling or family images.
If you would like family to participate or wish to do a double or triple shoot for multiple children please contact the studio directly for additional pricing.

Cake Smash Preparation Tips:
For the best turn out I highly recommend giving your little one a taste of cake/ icing prior to your shoot,  ensuring they are not coming in during their normal nap time or too close to bedtime ​and that they have not just had a big meal prior to their session as they will not be interested in their cake.

It is recommended that siblings stay home and do not come to the studio to watch as they won't be able to join in..
It is so hard for kids of any age to watch their sibling enjoying an entire cake to themselves and it interferes with us being able to get quality images because you then promise child they can have some which honestly if you are coming for a cake smash were hoping its a goopy mess on the floor at the end.
Keep it simple for the best and cutest turn out from your cake smash session, let's just focus on birthday baby!.

Building your perfect Birthday Set
Building little one's cake smash sets is one of my favourite things to do. I absolutely adore set design and capturing little ones making a mess in their cake & bath. I have a variety of props & accessories as well as outfits that are available for use to make your visions come to life. We can do a simple birthday set with balloons, tissue poofs, banner & twinkle lights or we can do more of a realistic set with various props to make your theme/scene come to life whichever package works best for you.  It is best to book your birthday session approximately 2 months ahead of time so there is plenty of time to build a set for your desired theme and ensure your date is available. It is also best to book your shoot 3 weeks before you would like to have your gallery returned to you if you would like the photos back by a certain date.

Cake Smash Prep Tips!

Please bring a sippy cup or drink with some water, puffs or the like in case we have to trick baby to get in the cake, towel, cloth, and some bubble bath for the bath session.

You may also wish to bring a change of clothes for yourself, it gets messy!

Try to make sure the session is not scheduled during nap time.

Please please do not pull out phones or screens at the start of your session. These things usually cause babies to cry if they are taken away and its hard to turn their mood around after that happens.
