What happens at a Birthday shoot at my Norwich Baby Studio? 2016

A birthday shoot is a great way to mark your child’s birthday with some adorable and timeless images, these are taken at my home studio.  I can also hold the shoot outdoors which I recommend for on the go 2& 3-year-olds.

If you do not like the idea of a Cake Smash, book a studio session at packages start from £200 and mention it’s your child’s birthday soon and we can add some extra fun for him/her.

The packages are either 30 minutes or 1 hour and include time for sibling and family images. Although the majority of the session is focused on the birthday girl or boy.


I advise parents on what outfit choices work best,  and what to bring via email before the photoshoot and my full address studio is in Nr7 Norwich. Many parents already have outfits in mind or use my website to get ideas. I find simple colours like navy, pastel colours, creams and ivory work well for a lot of the setups.

If parents have a fun birthday outfit such as tutu dress, cap and braces they can bring them along too. I have even had a Gruffalo costume brought along – this gives parents a lovely and varied gallery of images.  We often have time for 2-3 outfit changes.

I am not heavily focused on props as you may have noticed. My style is very much simple, timeless and focused on the baby/child.  But I have some lovely little props, chairs, and stall. Which compliment the birthday shoot,  and are not too distracting from the birthday boy/girl.


Babies and Toddlers love my little wooden blocks below, made by a local business. Some parents bring bunting and balloons – it’s up to you! We can also use my little bathtub if you would like some fun bubble images – see below.
