First Birthday Session
First Birthday Session
Your baby is no longer a baby, they're a one year old soon-to-be toddler! The best part of turning one, the cake smashing and learning to sit and stand on your own. Let's celebrate and capture these milestones as they will quickly fall into memory lane and you will no longer have that little munchkin running around squawking.
Your Session: This is a fun time, so let's make it all about that little one! I do have several local vendors I promote to create your smash cake if you're wanting to make something fun and unique. We will do a couple of shots of the little one to begin with and then will work our way into the cake smash session towards the end.
What To Wear: This is all about being messy so don't be afraid to bring extra outfits changes. We will do the cute shots first to ensure that you get some nice fist year shots and then we will pull out the smash cake to play with. If you have any special outfits you want to take photos in make sure to let me know ahead of time so we can plan something to make the shoot extra special. I encourage you to bring some extra towels to clean up baby.
What To Bring: Bring any type of props you have in mind for your shoot. If you have a specific photograph that you like and want to re-create bring it to my attention, I'm here to make your memories turn into photographs so by all means share your ideas. Another typical thing to keep in mind is if you have a theme for their birthday we can create some fun props that go with it. If you're wanting to use these photos for 1st birthday invitations make sure to book enough in advance that you'll be able to get the prints ready to go as well.
Time & Location: For on location shoots, I prefer shooting right before sunset, that's always the best lighting but we can do a morning session if needed. I also do have a studio set up that we can use for this type of session with backdrops that will go great with their specific sessions with window light if it's available. Sessions usually last about two hours depending on locations and the amount of changes we do. If we need to go longer than the two hours I will honor that as I want to make sure we get the perfect photographs. We can agree on a location choice or if you have several places in mind we can arrange something that works. If you have a specific place that has sentimental value or significance to your make sure you let me know and we'll be sure to incorporate it into the shoot.
Session Fees: A $50.00 non-refundable deposit is required to book your session with the remaining balance due on the day of your session, prior to starting. The items listed below are what your session will cover. I will honor the session price quoted if you've requested one but prices are subject to change.
Session Fee Includes:
First Birthday Session Fee is $120.00
Session Fee Includes:
- One to two hours of shoot time
- Location of your choice as discussed prior to the day of the shoot
- Unlimited outfit changes
- 20 edited high resolution images
- Black and white conversions of all edited photos
- Album located on my website with all of your images displayed, we can add pass code if you'd like as well
- Prints ordered off of the website at lab cost (They're set at my cost level so you're getting professional lab quality prints at a major discount)
- Photographer's time, talent, editing and travel expense :)
- 25% Discount on all print products for the month after your session is completed
Extras: Something new I've launched this past year in 2014 is that I am no longer offering a cd with full print rights included in my packages. To read more about my reasons for choosing to change this please read my post with the details. Instead I've choosen a "a la carte" style package so you can pick and choose what you'd like to include with your purchasing from your session.
- Social Media Digital Downloads - $10
These are low resolution files with Dirt Road Photogrpahy logo on them to be used for social media sites. These are mainly intended for those who are wanting to share what fun they had during their session but don't have intentions of ordering other digital related prints.
- CD with all edited images and full copyright release - $75
This is for you to take your images and have them printed wherever you prefer. I realize that a lot of people have worked with other photographers and this is simply the easiest way for you to receive hard copies of your photograph's but 85% of clients do not even print their photos. I highly suggest printing them right away!
- Prints off of website - 25% Discount
This is something I offer for all sessions so you can get lab quality prints at a lower price. I like to give clients a discount to encourage them to order right away so they don't forget! It's also a nice way to share with family members that they're welcome to order prints for themselves as well!
- Proof book- $45
Some people like to have a book to show others what they can order from their session, it's also a great way to have all your pictures printed into one book to look at later and share with friends
- Additional Edits - $10/image
If you would like more images than allotted per package we can add them onto your session. Keep in mind that by adding more images to your session it may take longer for you to receive them as I will need more time to complete your session.
- Specialty Products - Prices Vary
There are so many customized fun products we can do with your pictures so make sure to check out the link with other product ideas. From phone cases to customized invitations we can do it all!
