Your first birthday session
So that once tiny bundle of joy is now an adorable, expressive little human, on their way to completing their first trip around the sun! Well done mama, dada, it can’t have been plain sailing, but your baby is nearly ONE! Let’s celebrate!
First Birthday sessions at the Slinky studio are super varied. We generally start with a family portrait, and you’re welcome to bring any big siblings, too. We can get some sweet images of the Birthday boy or girl before pulling out the cake, and finishing up with a bubble bath clean-up. This is often the part babies love the most!
Cake smash sessions can be themed however you’d like, so it’s time to get creative! The possibilities really are endless, have a peek at the gallery below for inspiration, or discuss your own ideas with us at the time of booking.
"A gorgeous, calm atmosphere where you can really relax and be yourself..."
When should I book?
We recommend scheduling your session for 2-3 weeks before the big 1st Birthday – this way you’ll have your images back in time to show off on the day. So it’s best to contact us as soon as you can after baby turns 9 months. This allows for availability and for planning of your own special theme or scene!
How to prepare? What to bring?
Your Welcome Pack will go out in the post at the time of booking. It’s full of useful information to help you prepare for your session. We provide the set, outfit and cake – so no need to worry about any of that. Do let us know if your baby has any dietary requirements, our professional bakers can cater for most things.
Can my older children be involved?
Baby’s first birthday session is a wonderful time to update your family portrait, or have some images of your children together… so the answer to this, is absolutely! Just let us know who’ll be coming along at the time of booking, so we’re prepared.
