First Birthday & Cake Smash

Thank you so much for your interest in booking a  Birthday & Cake Smash  or both.

Fyi Birthdays are often done for the First Birthday but if you missed it we can do any age at all!!

I look forward to booking you in for these cheeky little sessions!

 You can either photograph:

  1. Birthday Session separately
  2. Cake Smash separately (bring own cake)
  3. Do a combined shoot (bring own cake)
  4. Please note your shoot is booked in the diary and paid for in advance as the studio has to be prepped for your arrival – see details below.

I look forward to meeting you and your baby soon.

My best Baby Studio Days are:

I run the Baby Studio on Mondays Tuesday &Thursdays.

If you are really struggling I can sometimes do a different day of the week and very occasionally a weekend work permitting so let me know.

Kind Regards Claire Patterson x

Preparing your Baby for Birthday Shoot

  • Bring Baby wearing outfit required for shoot so we are ready to go as soon as arrive.
  • Bring a spare set of clothes just in case we have time for another outfit – this will all depend on how well baby responds.
  • A great idea is to bring either baby’s scan or baby’s newborn photo in a frame/canvas ideally so they can hold themselves.
  • I have got tutu’s for girls and crowns/pink balloons etc and bow ties for boys, crowns, blue balloons.
  • A chalk board will be available and words can be digitally added post shoot ie if required.
  • The primary focus of this shoot is on your baby but if you want to jump in for a quick photo altogether we might be able to squeeze it in.

The Studio Set up

  • The Background will be set up in advance and be ready for you with a variety of props/hats/balloons etc.
  • It will be made to look as if there is a party scene…… if you want to do a ‘straight’ shoot ie plain background without balloons/pom poms etc let me know in advance.
  • The log cabin Studio will also be heated and warm in advance of your arrival
  • Your baby will be put in the ‘scene’ and from that moment on I will shoot photos for 15 minutes

Preparing your Cake Smash Shoot

  • Bring Baby wearing your chosen outfit required for shoot so we are ready to go as soon as arrive.
  • Bring your own cake –  think about bringing a can of squirty cream – it is a great topping and easily licks off any cake!!
  • You will need to bring own outfit for this shoot.
  • The Background will be ready in the Studio with a variety of props/hats/ wooden spoons etc.
  • A chalk board will be available and words can be digitally added post shoot ie if required.
  • Your baby will be put in the ‘scene’ and from that moment on I will shoot photos for 15 minutes
  • Props will be altered for baby as I shoot too.
  • If you have a prop you wish to bring by all means bring it along.
  • The primary focus of this shoot is on your baby, there is unlikely to be a moment to include any other family members for this one.

Cleaning up (allow 10 minutes at end of shoot)

  • You will need to bring wipes/towels to clean your baby up post shoot.
  • A bowl of warm water is provided for you to use if required and a flannel.
