Looking for 1st Birthday photoshoot ideas or toddler birthday milestones from ages 2-5 years old? Hi, my name is Jenn and I am a baby/child photographer in the Greater Atlanta, GA area. My private studio is located in Woodstock, GA but I also offer on location outdoor sessions as well. Your child’s 1st birthday is a major milestone to celebrate and document, as they have changed tremendously over the last 12 months. They have reached several milestones like rolling over, grabbing their toes, holding their own bottle, sitting up, crawling, feeding themselves, saying their first words and now working towards walking and entering the toddler stages. Documenting their 1st birthday is a joyous occasion to capture their final stage of infancy before they become a toddler on the move. But don’t stop at the 1st birthday as every birthday after that is just as special so these sets below work for ages 1 to 5 years old.
There are so many ideas, themes and options to think about to creatively capture this moment. You can choose one of these past themes I have photographed or you can customize your session (for an added designer fee) where I will research, shop, purchase and create a unique theme that matches your vision so all you have to do is show up with a happy baby/toddler. Either way, I strive to make this moment a fun and enjoyable experience that you will remember for years to come! My sessions include the cake/cupcakes, outfits, backdrops, props and more. Scroll below to check out all the ideas and possibilities for your child’s Birthday Photoshoot.
This is always a fun (and popular) theme that can be photographed several different ways. Even though these are all girls, I can make it work for a boy set as well without the floral and just touches of greenery and peaches.
Balloon garlands added on are always a client favorite. This set can fit boys or girls
Looking for less props and just a more simplistic set with pinks, creams and greenery? This set is a backdrop and not an actual garland so it saves you the extra cost as well.
Blues can be perfect for boys or girls. This would be a custom set or you need to add on the balloon garland option or choose the blue fabric banner instead. You can also change up the balloon garland for your preferred color scheme.
The mauve purples and pinks and perfect for your little princess. This is a backdrop so no need to add on a balloon garland.

This soft green set provides a great neutral, boho feel. It can be geared towards boys or girls with candles, pampas grass and greenery and the balloon colors can be customized. This set would require a custom theme collection or adding on a balloon garland.
