When you stop and think about it, your little one's first birthday is a pretty huge celebration of multiple things. Not only does it mark their first year of life but it's also the day that you'll find yourself pausing and reflecting on every single moment that brought you here. It's no wonder the day is so full of emotion! So whether you're celebrating with a cake smash session at home or an elegant party and portrait session in the garden, let me be there to freeze your moments and give you tangible memories to treasure forever. I'll be sure to capture the joy and celebration of the day with all those involved but I'll also create some beautiful and personal storyteller images of yourselves as parents as you take time to reflect on that first year and all the challenges you have overcome as a family including the memories you have made and the endless joy that your little person has brought not only into your lives, but the lives of all those around you too. 

I shoot first birthday celebrations both indoors at my wonderful client's homes and outdoors on location using the beautiful scenery of North Yorkshire as my backdrop depending on your personal preference. I'm happy to photograph cake smash sessions outdoors too if you would prefer, so long as the weather is nice and there's no wind to blow any dirt/grass on to the cake. For this option we usually try to use your garden so that if the conditions aren't ideal on the day we can easily create beautiful portraits outdoors before getting messy with a smash indoors.

However you choose to celebrate, you can be sure that your little one's big day will be perfectly frozen in time in my classic storyteller way which utilizes natural light, captures the big moments and the small and always goes at baby's pace.


I'm based near Goathland in the North York Moors but don't worry if you live further-a-field as I cover the whole of North Yorkshire from Whitby and Pickering to Harrogate, Ripon, Knaresborough and more! Travel throughout North Yorkshire is included in your booking.
