Edward’s Cake Smash PhotoShoot

Edward’s Cake Smash PhotoShoot

I call our Cake Smash PhotoShoot our 3-in-1 ‘Happimess’ photoshoot as I do 3 shoots as one to celebrate the 1st Birthday.

I also offer a mini family photo shoot prior to the start of this Happimess photo session.

So here is how it works …. After the family pics … We start off with our wooden letters spelling ‘One’. I have some large wooden letters which can be turned to virtually any colour in the post edit – you’ll see lots of different variations in my cake smash gallery – click here to view.  I also have a large floral ‘1’ for the girls, and smaller wooden letters if preferred.  We discuss which you’d like to use at the start of every session.

And then I bring on the cake … each package INCLUDES one of our standard cakes as shown in the pics below – but you can order other cakes too for a little extra – all shown on the website together with package costs – click here to view.

Once your little one has had enough of cake smashing, we then put them into my posing roll top baby bath, leaving as much cake on them as poss to start with … put the bubbles on and let them enjoy themselves.  These are very fun sessions and we often get very wet! 🙂

These photo shoots are fab!  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.

If you are thinking of booking a birthday cake smash photoshoot for your little one, our 3 Sale Packages are shown on our website – click here. Each package includes an 8” tall personalised cake made extra soft and gooey and very yummy, in a choice of colours.  But we do have other exciting and fun cakes for you to choose from and examples of these are shown on our website too (and a few atached to this blog).

If you would like to discuss a colour scheme or a certain theme, then please do get in touch – we are always open to and welcome new ideas.

There are no hidden costs, there is nothing more to pay if you book one of our packages, unless of course you would like additional images – you can request to see these prior to booking.

Baby PhotoShoot

Baby PhotoShoot

I just love Baby Photography – from all ages …

I do think that the 5-6 months stage is a great age and many call these the ‘Sitter’ shoots.  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 arms making sure they don’t fall.   And at this age, personality is really taking shape and it’s an age of lots of smiles and giggles.

My studio 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 – many soft toys and props are on show in the studio so you have lots of choice for your photoshoot.   You will not only get the images you will love forever, but you will really enjoy the experience too.

In a 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.

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

All Baby Package options can include sibling and family shots … and the use of as many props as you like at no extra charge.

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.

Jungle Themed Cake Smash

I call our Cake Smash PhotoShoot our 3-in-1 ‘Happimess’ photoshoot as I do 3 shoots as one to celebrate the 1st Birthday.

I also offer a mini family photo shoot prior to the start of this Happimess photo session. Salah-Udeen’s mum & dad had a few group family pics at the start, as shown below.  Salah-Udeen had a Jungle themed cake smash.  I offer a few themes, and am always interested to learn of new ideas/themes that you may want – please always call to discuss even if you don’t see what you’d like in my gallery of images (link below).

So here is how it works …. After the family pics … We start off with our wooden letters spelling ‘One’. I have some large wooden letters which can be turned to virtually any colour in the post edit – you’ll see lots of different variations in my cake smash gallery – click here to view.  As in the pic below of Salah-Udeen with his letters, I’ve changed them to fit in with his Jungle themed photoshoot.

And then I bring on the cake … each package INCLUDES one of our standard cakes as shown in the pics below – but you can order other cakes too for a little extra – all shown on the website together with package costs – click here to view.

Salah-Udeen wasn’t too keen on his cake smash … didn’t seem to enjoy the mess!  But he had fun in his Tub and Bubbles session, which was done this time in one of our pails to fit in more with the Jungle theme.

These photo shoots are fab!  Sooooo much fun for your baby and for you as the parents … and for me too!

Baby Photoshoots – Greater Manchester

I specialise in Baby Photography – from all ages.

I just love the Newborn Baby stage as these are such very precious early moments in your baby’s life  (up to 4 weeks as a general rule – not a hard and fast rule!).  The next miilestone is the ‘Sitter’ stage – usually arond the 5-7 months where your baby sits up unaided (and even if no unaided we have ways to hellp with this); this is a wonderful age as personality is showing and the smiles and giggles are flowing.

The 1st Birthday is a very important one and I do love the 1st Birthday Cake Smash Photoshoot as these are just so much fun for all of us – not just baby 🙂  But alot of people aren’t keen on this experience so don’t miss out on the 1st Birthday Photoshoot – I have absolutely lots of lovely ideas – a few of which are shown below.  We can still use the wooden letters spelling ‘ONE’ – of which I have a few to choose from and a limitless number of colours for you.  Then we can use pompoms, balloons, bunting, various chairs (one that spins round and is great fun for all ages) and other props that I have for some gorgeous fun shots, then we can introduce some bubbles and a vintage pail and let them have some fun in here too.
