1st Birthday Baby Photography Sydney Inner West
In the first year of your baby's life it's incredible just how much they grow and change. Their first birthday is such a milestone in their little lives. The official end of their babyhood, and entering a new chapter - toddlerhood! It's also a beautiful time as a parent to reflect on just how far you've come together over the past year. I offer 1st birthday baby photography sessions to celebrate this special milestone.
What sort of images do you take at a 1st Birthday photography session?
During my 1st birthday sessions, I take a range of images including: baby on their own with 2 - 3 outfit changes, parent images, sibling images (if applicable), family images, a cake smash (or watermelon smash if you'd prefer a healthier option), and a bubble bath in my mini clawfoot bath to finish & clean up.
Where do the sessions take place?
All my photography sessions take place at my beautiful baby photo studio in the Sydney Inner West suburb of Balmain. At the studio I have a range of internationally sourced props, fabrics, and outfits for your baby to choose from. You are also welcome to bring along any special items (such as family heirlooms) that you would like included in your baby's photographs.
Do you supply the cake for the cake smash?
Due to allergy concerns, I ask that my clients source their own cakes for their cake smash. I can recommend local bakeries as well as colours and flavours that work best.
How long do your 1st birthday baby photography sessions last?
As any parent knows, babies have a very short attention span. My 1st birthday photo session usually last about 30 - 45 minutes. In that time it is my aim to get as many images and maximum variety in your gallery images before babies decide that they've had enough.
Do your 1st birthday sessions include images of my other children/partner/myself?
Yes! All of my baby photography sessions include images of your immediate family - this includes other children and both parents. Grandparents can also be included on request.
Hi! I'm Amy Tong. I'm a newborn and baby photographer in Sydney, Australia. I'm Mum to 2 little ones, and wife to my best friend of almost 20 years. I've always been creative. A lover of music, art and history. Photography has been an important part of my life since I first picked up a camera as a hobby back in 2008. I knew that I wanted to pursue photography as a career.
I began my career as a professional baby photographer back in 2012 and have had the honour of photographing over 300 babies since then. To me, photography allows us to preserve moments in time for future generations. I can't think of any better job in the world. I'd love to hear from you and help you hold on to these special moments too..
