Your baby turning one is a big deal! It's the first big milestone since they were born and marks a year of a wonderful transformation from newborn to the beginnings of the toddler years. It is a chance to celebrate the little personality and character that your baby has become.
As you will know, the big trend for a while now has been to mark it with a cake smash shoot. These are the best fun and a chance for your little one to get very messy! And the best bit, the parents don't have to clean it up - I do! These shoots provide great fun and I will forever continue to offer them.
BUT some parents aren't too keen on a cake smash and there could be a number of reasons. Some just don't like the concept, for some they prefer their child to not have cake just yet, for others it may be that they don't like the waste or they don't have the budget a full cake smash shoot.
Cue the First Birthday Mini Session. I launched these sessions a while back now and they are really popular but I wonder if people know enough about them so here is a little snapshot of what it's like to have a mini shoot and why it might be the perfect alternative for you so you can still ensure you capture the most important milestone of your baby's first year.
The mini shoot will last for a shorter length of time, which is also great for those who are on a busy schedule or whose little one has a short attention span. The 30 minute session is perfect and can be worked around your little one's napping time too. Within those 30 minutes, I will provide a bespoke set up, providing all props, balloons, ONE letters and an outfit to match should you wish me too or you can bring your own. I have lots of different set ups from bunting, garlands, backdrops, pinwheels and balloon garlands.
Within that 30 minutes I will capture your little one as they play with the ONE letters, hit the balloons, crawl across the studio floor and giggle away. When the shoot has finished and my clients have gone home I will then work on selecting the best 6 images from the shoot, will edit them and email them as high resolution files to you on the same day. How about that for quick service?! This means you get a shoot and beautifully edited images that will be yours to keep and print as you wish, all on the same day and for £110.
Most of my clients tell me that they choose to do a mini shoot over a birthday party where their baby won't really remember it. And when you have lots of family and friends struggling to know what to buy your little one, you could ask to be gifted with money or my vouchers to put towards your chosen shoot.
