First Birthday Photography
Your baby will never have more than one first birthday. In recent years, it has become a huge tradition to capture a first birthday because, as we said, there will only ever be one first birthday. With these types of photo shoots there are a lot of different ideas that we can use. We can do an outdoor photo shoot. We could do an indoor photo shoot. And we can do the the most popular first birthday photo shoots right now: cake smashing. Whatever type of photo shoot you choose, we promise to give you a great reminder of baby’s first birthday!
Smash cakes have quickly become the most popular type of first birthday photo shoots. These are chosen because they enable your baby to have a good time, while being photographed. Cake is a staple of any birthday party and, for that reason, why not get your baby started early? In this type of photo shoot, we will set out a cake and take a few pictures before baby digs in. We will then let baby go crazy and smash and eat the cake while we capture every minute of the fun.
Another very popular option for first birthday photo shoots is to take them outside, in a park. Because babies can be finicky, giving them a setting where they are interested in and happy makes taking picture of them much easier. These types of photo shoots are usually stage with balloons, presents and blankets. Natural light makes great lighting for babies, as they’re skin handles light very well. Talking outside pictures of your baby’s first birthday also lets us tackle the pictures wherever you would like; giving a unique setting that is special to you and your baby.
Indoor first birthday photo shoots are the easiest to do, because they are usually taken in your baby’s natural habitat. In these types of photos, we can typically set up lighting to make sure that your pictures turn out well. Because these types of photo shoots usually happen inside your own home, it is relatively easy to make your baby feel comfortable and happy; which leads to great pictures. We can also combine an indoor photo shoot with a smash cake photo shoot, if you’d like, although smash cake pictures are usually taken outside, because they can get very messy.
While we have outlines three types of photo shoots we can do for you and your baby, there are so many different ideas that we haven’t touched on. Because this is all about your baby, it is important for you to take a sense of pride in this photo shoot. For that reason, choosing a place that is special to you or special to your baby, to take the photos in, is paramount. We can do silly photos, beauty shots or serious photos. The choice of how to take baby’s pictures is completely up to you.
