Looking for 1st Birthday photoshoot ideas? Hi, my name is Jenn and I am a baby photographer in the 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.
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. 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, outfits, backdrops, props and more. Scroll below to check out all the ideas and possibilities for your Baby’s 1st 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.
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 that matches your preferred color scheme? A balloon garland and cake really puts the focus on baby.
Have a baby that is born in the winter? This theme will suit them perfectly whether they are a boy or a girl!
This Strawberry theme is perfect for summertime babies and can work with boys or girls.
These are perfect for boys who love animals or have an animal themed bedroom.
This is just a more boho version of the safari theme. Perfect for boys or girls where we can add in some dusty pink too or prettier green/teal for girls.
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.
This sweet look can be photographed outdoors or I just purchased a perfect Winnie the Pooh backdrop that I can’t wait to use since babies tend to do better in a temperature controlled environment.
This birthday set is perfect for one year olds or toddlers. If your boy loves airplanes or Dad is a pilot then this set is a perfect fit. Balloons are extra to add in.
This boho set is perfect if you love pinks, creams, greenery and flowers.

This retro look can be customized for girly colors too. Perfect set to highlight their first year coming up.
This set can be customized to fit a boy or girl for their Beary 1st Birthday. Bear bonnets are also available to add in for a few poses to make your cutie a bear too.

This look is great for in the studio or in the woods. A perfect fit for adventurous boys.
This session is perfect for those babies born around Nov-Dec to incorporate a Christmas theme. Also add in the siblings for a fun Gingerbread baking photo.
This beach backdrop is perfect to create a fun Mermaid themed or Sailor themed birthday photoshoot. Mermaid outfit and props included plus I can add in the cake, ONE letters and more to really jazz it up.
