Tummy Time and Sitting Sessions
Delighting in the developmental milestones of your little one, our Tummy Time and Sitting Sessions are crafted with care to capture the fleeting moments of growth between 3 to 9 months. Understanding the limited attention span of your precious bundle, these sessions are thoughtfully kept short, ensuring a focused and enjoyable experience. Whether adorned with a timeless teddy bear theme or embracing simplicity with plain backdrops, we believe in creating a serene environment with minimal distractions. Our aim is to highlight the genuine expressions and milestones of your little one. In these sessions, we encourage investing time and care in selecting the perfect outfit for both you and your baby, allowing their personality to shine through the lens, creating treasured memories that last a lifetime.
First Birthday Photoshoot
Our first birthday sessions include a cake smash and bath time.
The first birthday is a milestone that holds immeasurable significance for many parents, and our First Birthday Photoshoot is designed to commemorate this special occasion in the most heartwarming way. This comprehensive session unfolds with a cherished family photo session, capturing the joy and unity that define this milestone moment. The celebration continues with a delightful cake smash, where your little one is free to explore the sweetness of their first birthday cake in a setting adorned with simplistic themes that ensure they stand out as the star. Following the fun and messiness, we transition into a serene bubble or milk bath session, providing a soothing and visually captivating conclusion to the festivities.
Decor is a personalized touch we discuss with each client, emphasizing a love for simplistic elegance that complements rather than overshadows the true star—the child. While we have a few themes that radiate timeless charm, we are always open to new ideas and creative inspirations that align with your vision. Our collaborative approach ensures that the decor enhances the essence of each session, creating a backdrop that beautifully frames the genuine moments and expressions of your little one. From selecting colors to exploring themes, our goal is to curate a setting that harmonizes with your family’s unique story, making each photoshoot a truly memorable experience.
At Mudboots Photography, we believe that outfits play a crucial role in weaving a cohesive and visually pleasing theme for each photoshoot. Our attention to detail extends beyond your little one’s attire; we understand the importance of harmonizing the child’s outfit, the cake, and the decor for a seamless and enchanting theme. It’s not just about the child’s ensemble; we encourage parents to consider their attire, ensuring a unified and coordinated family look.
We have a small selection of tutu’s that you little one can wear with a plain vest. By planning ahead you can order the perfect outfit from
The cake can set the theme of the shoot but can also be not so important at all. It really depends on the theme and your budget.
Buttercream encourages kids to smash, so if you want to have a cool cake smash use a buttercream cake.
Make sure the baker is aware that it is for a one-year-old cake smash and does not use any sticks or sharp objects in the decor or cake.
