What to Expect for Atlanta First Birthday Photos

When families schedule Atlanta first birthday photos with our studio, they get so much more than just portraits of their one year old. I love involving the entire family in these special milestone sessions. After a first birthday studio sessions, families can walk away with a gallery that gives them updated portraits of the entire family! Today I’m walking you through all the shots I work on capturing during a first birthday studio session for a family with multiple children.

First: Atlanta First Birthday Photos Featuring the Birthday Boy!

The most important part of these milestone sessions is featuring the Birthday Baby! We begin with getting a range of lovely portraits of the one year old. My all white studio offers a classic backdrop that creates timeless photos of your little one. From balloons, to a bench, a white bed and more, we have so many spaces to get unique and interactive shots of your sweet baby.

Second: Portraits of all the Siblings

As a mother of four, I understand how busy life can be when you are juggling the schedules of multiple children. If you have a first birthday session scheduled for one child, we can take advantage of the time we have to get updated portraits of all your children! I take a few moments to get individual photos of each child as well as sweet sibling shots.

Third: Focus on Parents with the Birthday Boy

Next, we get some portraits of the parents with their one year old. I love getting photos of both parents with the baby as well as individually. These photos will be a treasure not only for you, but for your child when they grow up!

Fourth: Whole Family Portraits

These are often the ones that end up in the frames! We gather the whole family together for family portraits for every session. I love getting multiple shots of the whole family together so my clients have several family portrait options to choose from.

Last: Atlanta First Birthday Photos of The Cake Smash!

The most fun way to end a first birthday session….the Cake Smash! These always take place at the end of an Atlanta first birthday photo session due the messy nature of digging into a cake! It’s a time of celebration for your birthday boy and is always interactive and fun.

After the Session: Gallery Wall Design

I never leave clients with the task of figuring out what to do with portraits after a session. After the session, I help clients by designing albums and gallery walls for their photos. This gallery wall was specially designed for a wall in my client’s home using one of my custom frames.
