First Birthday Portraiture Session for Little Logan
Logan has just had his first birthday and mum had planned a photo shoot for quite a while. We arranged to meet early in the morning in some bushland which was lucky, as the day turned out to be a hot one. I brought along a little wicker chair, balloons and my little red cart. The brief to the parents was to be natural with their son, play, cuddle and just show me the love they have for their little boy. The session lasted about an hour, but I got a lovely variety of shots. Here are 20 to show you, but the parents ended up with 45 images. I hope that in years to come they will look back at these photos of their little boy when he no longer as little as this. It’s such a special time, and I felt honoured capturing their love for each other.
I am offering this particular photo session at the same price as my cake smash, which is $395. This is a very special price given the fact that my standard family portraiture prices start at $495. However, all my packages for a family session with children under the age of 1 are discounted. I firmly believe the first year is so special, that parents should get as many photographs as possible. It’s an hour’s session and you will receive 30-40 high-resolution images on a USB stick. Images in black & white and social media reduced files are complimentary. You can arrange an outdoor session just like, at a local park or at the beach. Please contact me if you would like to have a chat about your baby’s portraiture. Thanks. 🙂
Outdoor Cake Smash – A Family Celebration
This outdoor cake smash was always meant to be a whole family celebration of the little girl turning one. We arranged for the session to take place outdoors because the family wanted to have photographs with the dog too. Don’t they say “never work with children or animals”? Well, during this session I was working with both and it was great fun. The dog ended up joining in the cake eating and smashing.
Balloons, hair crowns and coloured puffs were provided by me and the parents brought the cake, helium ONE and the 1. I also brought along the white blanket and chair.
An outdoor cake smash can easily be arranged and is available at the same price as the studio one. It gives the added advantage that we can take family portraits before the cake smash. This way, you almost get two for one photo shoots. For more information please click here Cake Smash for one-year olds.
Sitter Session – Milestone Photography
I photographed little Amelia as a newborn baby and remembered her gorgeous big eyes. But cuteness overload entered my studio when she came back for her sitter session. She was confidently sitting up in my little bowl, although it proved a little hard to tease some smiles out of her. She was looking around with her big eyes taking it all in. But when she did smile, her whole face lit up. So gorgeous!
A Sitter Session is part of my milestone packages, which are priced at $295. I guarantee 10 images from the session, which usually lasts about an hour. I am presently in the process of buying, collecting and making several outfits for these sessions. Not just for girls, but for boys as well. For example, this little romper and brown tutu in the images below can be borrowed for the shoot.
Newborn Art Photography is all about different set-ups and variety. My digital images collections are designed to give my clients the choice of either just choosing 10 images for the Silver Collection or purchasing all the images in the gallery for the Gold Collection. For full pricing information, please click here: Newborn Art Pricing.
In this blog, I wanted to show a typical selection for the Silver Collection (10 images) from one of my clients. I think it shows that all images are very different. Each set-up had another 2-3 images in the gallery, showing baby from different angles, distance or orientation. Normally, this collection would typically also contain images with mum & dad, however, this particular couple choose not to have any photographs taken of them and baby.
Little Felicity – a typical newborn art photography session flow
Little Felicity Newborn Photography. Felicity was a super easy baby to photograph. I could quite comfortably move her from one prop to the next and gave me plenty opportunities to give parents a big variety for their gallery. This is a typical session for my Newborn Art Photography. I ended up with seven different coloured bowls, props and wraps and one beanbag set up. You can see from the sequence of images that I started with a pink tight wrap, gradually peeling out her hands and arms for the cream wrap. Once in the cream wrap, I added another cream scarf over the top. Dad helped me with with the tub photographs by supporting Felicity’s head at all times. The transition to the coloured lace fabric was straightforward and little baby was so sleepy, that I could peel off even more to pop her into the yellow set-up. After that she needed a feed though, which gave me a chance to set up fresh colours and the beanbag. Happy on a full tummy, Felicity gave me some gorgeous open eye photographs on the beanbag. She fell asleep again so I finished the session off with a white set-up. Wrapping her up again in lilac, we then focused on parent photographs (which are not displayed here). Fast asleep, I couldn’t resist having one more basket set-up, capturing her many faces during sleep.
