Baby Photo Session

Baby Photo  Session

If you are thinking about booking a Baby Photo Shoot, the 5-6 months age is a wonderful time to capture their personality, smiles and giggles.

Your baby is learning to sit up and although perhaps not able to sit up unaided, we have baby chairs that can help with this, and PhotoShop which can edit out parents’ arms making sure they don’t fall.   And at this age, personality is really taking shape and it’s an age I just love to photograph.

My studio baby photo sessions are very relaxed in a lovely warm, bright and airy environment, specially designed so that it looks like a soft play area for your baby – soft toys and props are on show in the studio so you have lots of choice for your photoshoot.

For the Baby Photo Shoot I provide chairs, suitcases, pails and other props such as ‘rocking horse’, hats, balloons …. lots and lots of choice for you … many of which can be seen in the gallery of images on the Baby Photo Shoot Page – click here to view.

We also have unique little vintage outfits which are specially made for Shy Violet Photography only (shown below) … all for girls at the moment, but boys outfits are being made for us too.

On arrival, we discuss the shots that you’d like before we start.  I have various backdrops that you can choose from too, many of which can be seen in the gallery of images – to view please Click here.  OR visit my Facebook page for lots more ideas and images …. also too my Instagram account – which is ShyVioletPhotography.

Our Baby Photoshoot Sale Packages can be found on the above link too.

Following each shoot, a gallery of images is uploaded to my gallery only website for you and from here you can choose your favourites – the gallery stays on for 3 weeks so you can revisit as many times as you like and offer viewing to extended family too.

To book in, or make an enquiry, you can use the online form or email gaynor@shyvioletphotography.co.uk, or call me (Gaynor) on 07810 5335533.

This is little Edie at just 6 months ….

Maternity / Pregnancy Photo Shoot

Maternity / Pregnancy Photo Shoot

“Offering beautiful Natural and Creative Maternity/Pregnancy/Bump photography capturing this very special time in your life”

Between 28-36 weeks is the best time for a Pregnancy / Maternity photoshoot –  This is when expecting mothers can enjoy the photo shoot and can still move around with the growing baby snug inside and when bump is full and round.

Our Pregnancy / Maternity photoshoots can be all about you and ’bump’ or family members can join in for a few shots too. We have props and gowns which we offer at no extra charge, and you are welcome to bring your own clothes and props too. We love the images which include the scan pic so always a good idea to bring one or 2 of these with you.

We offer the very natural maternity photography, plus the more creative side with butterflies, billowing material and chiffon – examples of which are shown in our  image gallery.  We would have a chat about your requirements prior to the shoot in our very informal, warm and relaxing studio.

You can book one of our packages as shown on our website – click here …  or you can let us know what you’d like and we can price this for you.

We offer albums, photo books, canvases, blocks, folios – if you would like more info on any of these, please get in touch.

Following your Bump photo session with Shy Violet Photography, a Gallery of images will be online for 3 weeks on our Customer Only Gallery website where you will be able to view your images in the privacy of your own home, and as many times as you like.  Or if you wish these images to be more private, we can email the proofs over to you.

If you would like to book with us OR would you like us to quote on your own ideas for a bespoke package, please call or email Gaynor, or you can fill in our contact form.

Khaira’s Cake Smash Photoshoot

Khaira’s Cake Smash Photoshoot

Khaira came to Shy Violet Photography to celebrate her 1st birthday with a cake smash … which I call our  ‘HAPPIMESS’ 3-in1 1st Birthday Cake Smash photoshoot.  This incudes the ‘ONE’ wooden letters shoot at the start, the cake smash, followed by the tub and bubbles photoshoot

Her mum and I got together to create a bit of a different set up with garlands and butterflies as we as balllons and pompoms … I love and welcome new ideas from customers.

It’s just the best and fun way to celebrate the 1st Birthday…. Letting your little ones loose on a big bright and very gooey cake – what could be more fun?  Watching their excitement, smiles and reactions and capturing them on camera is priceless.

Khaira was not the biggest fan of the cake smash – she seemed a little overwhelmed at times but she still had a fab time and we go some supercute pics – a few shown below.

These 1st birthday cake smash photo shoots are great … even when your little ones are a bit unsure at first … still Sooooo much fun for your baby and for you as the parents … and for me too!

Following your baby’s cake smash photoshoot with Shy Violet Photography, a Gallery of images is uploaded to our Customer Only Gallery website where you are able to view the images as many times as you like and choose your faves from here.

Paint Splash PhotoShoot

Paint Splash PhotoShoot

The Paint Splash is excellent fun and a great choice for all toddlers who are a bit camera shy.  It can be used at any age or for a fun ‘messy play’ photoshoot and I feel that the Paint Splash is an excellent idea for those looking for photo ideas for the 2nd and 3rd birthdays and up.

Very often your toddlers are not only camera shy at the age of 2 and 3 , they can also be so on the go that they won’t sit still for photos – and I often hear customers say that they cannot get good photos at the toddler stage  … bring on the paint splash!  It’s great as way to capture natural smiles and giggles as they all love messy play … so we get some great fun shots as they mess about with and ‘in’ the paint creating loads of mess and colour.  They get to paint a canvas too which you can take home to hang with the photos too if you wish.

As shown below, I use the ivory backdrop for the Paint Splash to keep it light to show off the bright colours – but you can choose another colour if preferred – please ask on booking. The Paint splash can be done for a birthday shoot, or just a fun shoot, and can include siblings – please see below for some images.

Packages start at £199 which includes the photoshoot, paints and canvas, plus prints and a collage / or digital images – please ask for a price list as these prices are not yet shown on our website.  Balloons and pompoms can be included at no extra cost.  If you have any ideas for a theme or colour scheme, please call to discuss.

To make an enquiry, please either use the contact form on the website or email gaynor@shyvioletphotography.co.uk.

It’s just the best and fun way to celebrate the 1st Birthday…. Letting her loose on a big bright and very gooey cake – what could be more fun?  Watching her joy, smiles and reactions and capturing them on camera is priceless.

Neveah was hilarious – she absolutely loved the shoot – not just the cake smashing part – but all of it – her expressions were fantastic.  She made us all laugh out loud throughout and kept putting her face in the cake to eat it – pics below.

We started with our wooden letters spelling ONE (which I turned to his colour scheme post shoot edit – pic below) …And then it was time for the Cake Smash… Nevaeh loved her cake smash – literally shaking with delight at times!  After she’d had enough of cake smashing, we then put her into our mini roll top bath where she splashed about for ages – playing with the bubbles and flooding the studio! 🙂
