We do more than just cake smashes!
Of course, we do those, too… Irreverent, energetic and often uncontrollable – who doesn’t love toddlers?!
And, herein lies the success of photographing toddlers – a great rapport with the little models! As long as they’re having fun, we’ll capture it!
While studio shots work great for a classic and timeless look, toddlers photograph great in their natural environment – running, jumping, playing and generally destroying all in their path, be it in parks, playgrounds or on beaches!
Toddlers in the studio are not easy to capture, but well worth it in the end! If you opt out of the great outdoors in favour of capturing the classic and the timeless look only a studio setting can provide, we have a few tricks up our sleeve that can make this work!
The main problem is keeping these balls of energy in one spot, since studio lighting is designed to illuminate a certain area. However, once that obstacle is overcome, the images we can capture are truly the pride of every display – cheeky, joyful and full of life!
Our favourite and most popular genre! Kids love the outdoors! They feel in their element and are naturally happy to run, jump and climb! On our part, we’re happy to chase, catch and swing (all, while capturing the unbridled joy of existence that is a toddler!). Alone or with siblings, parents and other relations – we will find the location most suitable to your child’s interest and will freeze and immortalize their boundless energy!
Throughout the session, we will capture a mixture of posed and candid images, all effortlessly posed and perfectly composed. We use a large array of nature strips, parks, playgrounds and beaches in and around town, but are always open to new suggestions, if you happened to have them.
Also, especially in the case of younger children or those who do not cope well with the change in surroundings, often a back yard is a good option, too. Just let us visit you first, to establish suitability and the best time of day for the session.
Happy Birthday to your little one! In the studio or outdoors, with cake or without (we do trash the outfit/painting parties too). We are happy to supply outfits and props, or source the ones you’re after.
The cake is provided by you (please, avoid fondant cakes, these are notoriously difficult to “smash”), endless patience – by us!
And, yes, we’re happy to include a couple of family photos in the Cake Smash session. As with any kid’s session, best time to have it is in the morning, as children tend to be at their happiest then.
