I’ve been to 3 different photo shoots with Firefly Photography and have plenty more planned for the future!
My 1st was a bump to baby shoot, this included going whilst I was pregnant with my 1st baby and then returning once she has been born to snap those 1st adorable pictures of our new baby! The whole experience was amazing, the pictures to die for. For the bump shoot I chose 3 outfits, there is plenty of time for a natter, an outfit change and plenty of photo’s all whilst remaining laid back! The for the baby part the studio is kept nice and dark with soothing sounds, the shoot is taken at the baby’s pace, if they want to have some milk, you can stop and feed them. During the whole shoot, Ellie woke once which is when she decided to go to the toilet on the props! Once the shoots are over you head into the viewing room to have a cup of tea and view your photos
6 months after having Ellie, I was back again, this time a little more nervous, having myself a boudoir shoot! I was of course very body conscious, I’ve never been a slim person and then I still had my ‘mum tum’ and some stretch marks to add to the mix but I felt so comfortable in the studio and never did anything that made me feel uncomfortable (such as poses and positions to be photographed in) and having your hair and makeup done before hand make you feel like a million dollars! I can guarantee your end photo’s will be A-MAZE-ING!
Finally, we were back for Ellies 1st birthday for a smash and splash and boy was that fun. The studio provides a cake. Your little one can have a look round the studio to settle in and then the fun begins, and you can unleash them on the cake! Beware, it’s gets messy, I think I ended up covered in more cake than Ellie! Once the cake has been smashed and snacked on your little one gets a lovely little bubble bath to wash off the cake and have some more photos and finally a towel dry with a couple more pictures. This again is taken at the child’s pace with no pressure put on by the photographers. Every shoot I’ve had with firefly has been laidback and a lot of fun with plenty of laughs. I always recommend them to people and am planning to head back for Ellie’s 2nd birthday and hopefully some pet portraits of our new dog!!
