PAINTSPLASH SESSION PREPARATION


How to prepare for your Paint Splash Photo Session. . .

A paint splash photo session is a fun and joyful way to commemorate the milestone of your little one’s first or second birthday. This is a wonderful alternative to cake smashes if you want to capture their special day, but not worry about sugar content or dietary concerns. Capture your baby’s excitement, and delight as they splash. A paint splash is a great way to express your baby’s unique personality in a relaxed and carefree way.

What to expect?

We start with some pre-splash portraits being taken of your child, capturing their many expressions. We then introduce the paint. You can choose paints and backdrop to suit your style. The paints used are specially made for children and non toxic. 

When to schedule?

You can book as far in advance as you like, this ensures you get a slot that suits you best.  

What to bring?

Please bring a change of clothes for the both of you, as the paint can quite literally get everywhere.  A few of your child’s favourite toys may be a good idea too, to for comfort and distract them at the beginning of the session if needed. 

What to wear?

It’s up to you and can be as casual or dressy as you like.  I would recommend black  bottomed vests, as the colours may stain. If you are having a light coloured splash white would be best suited, be prepared that it might not be salvageable! (I would advise coordinating with me to compliment the setting). If your looking for something special and unique a great place to try is Esty and Facebook.

Please remember that their clothing will end up covered in paint so don’t dress them in something that you would be upset if it got ruined. 

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to call or email me and I will be happy to help you in anyway,  to make sure that your child’s Paint Splash photos are something that you’ll cherish forever.
