Laraya’s Cake Smash

Laraya’s Cake Smash

Laraya came to Shy Violet Photography to celebrate her 1st birthday with a cake smash … which we call our  ‘HAPPIMESS’ 3-in1 1st Birthday Cake Smash photoshoot.

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

Laraya 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.

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…Laraya loved her cake smash – squealing 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! 🙂

These 1st birthday cake smash 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.

Romero’s Newborn PhotoShoot

Romero’s Newborn PhotoShoot

My very favourite time to capture your newborn baby for a Newborn Baby PhotoShoot is between 6 and 12 days as this is a wonderful age as a rule to capture the gorgeous, sleepy curled up shots that we all love.  Up to 2 weeks is preferred but my Newborn Baby PhotoShoots go up to babies who are 4 weeks young but if your baby is slightly older and still sleeping well after feeds, please feel free to call me to discuss.  Romero came to see me at just 10 days young 🙂

If you have not yet had your baby, I recommend that you book in based on your due date and then if this changes, we move your Newborn shoot date.  You do not lose your deposit if we do have to rearrange.

My newborn baby photoshoots are very relaxed – you will not be kept waiting – you will be straight in and I make you a brew and we can have a chat about what you’d like from your photo session.  My studio is designed to make you feel relaxed and comfortable with lots of soft seating – and also offer chairs next to the newborn shoot area so that you can watch what I am doing all the time.

I offer family shots too in each package at no extra charge, and even if this is something you think you might like, come camera ready just in case :).

I offer the natural shots on blankets with and without props … through to the more creative Newborn Art images.  Examples of which can be seen in the gallery of images – Click here.  OR visit my Facebook page for lots more ideas and images …. also too my Instagram account – which is ShyVioletPhotography.

My Newborn SALE Packages are published on the webisite – please click here to view.   All can include sibling and family shots if you wish and very often I encourage the a famiy shot or 2 even if you’re not planning on it as it’s a moment in time that you’ll want to treasure.  All packages can be booked now for any date in 2022.

And all packages can include as many props as you’d like too with no extra charge – all images are fully edited once chosen – there are no hidden costs.

Following your Newborn baby photoshoot 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.

To make an enquiry or to book, you can fil lin the contact form found on all our website pages, or you can email: gaynor@shyvioletphotography.co.uk.

Baby Photoshoots from 5 months +

Baby Photo Shoots from 5 months+

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.

Lenny’s 1st Birthday Cake Smash

Lenny’s 1st Birthday Cake Smash

Lenny came to Shy Violet Photography to celebrate his 1st birthday with a cake smash … which we call our  ‘HAPPIMESS’ 3-in1 1st Birthday Cake Smash photoshoot.

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

Lenny brought along his mum and dad and his grandparents for a real 1st Birthday Celebration.  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… Mum had upgraded to our Piped Cake in green, blue and cream – so I’d colour matched all balloons and pompoms to the cake.   ALL packages include the standcard cake –  click here to view package prices and other cake options.

Lenny loved his cake smash – pulling some very cute and delighted faces – and probably eating far more than he should.  After he’s had enough of cake smashing, we then put him into our mini roll top bath where he splashed about for ages – playing with the bubbles and flooding the studio! 🙂

These 1st birthday cake smash 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 1st birthday cake smash photoshoot for your little one, our 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.
