The Rustic Christmas bed jammie mini sessions
Photography by Fiona is so excited to offer this exclusive 2018 Rustic Christmas Bed mini set up.
You may remember from last year we had a bed set up for our ‘my first Christmas’ sessions but this year we wanted everyone to be able to take part. So we have a brand new four poster rustic bed set up which is perfect for babies, children and siblings.
This session set is timeless and would look great in a Holiday Card to send to family and friends. These Mini sessions are also a great way to see what Photography by Fiona is all about.

Cake smash photographer, Bristol
I wanted to blog Jenson’s cake smash photography session because he was such a cute cake smasher and it has been such a pleasure to watch him grow from his newborn photography session with us. It is also nice for potential clients to be able to see a few more images from the same session to give you an idea of what you full gallery will look like from a Cake Smash and Splash session with Photography by Fiona.
Happy first birthday Jenson.
You can have your cake and eat it
After all that mess its time to clean up in our baby roll top bath. We are one of the only Cake smash photographers in Bristol to offer a bath such as this one to clean up. So when choosing a cake smash and splash photographer make sure you choose us to get these adorable bath portraits too as part of the package.
Yep we do also get very splashed so do bring a towel too and maybe a change of clothes for mum and dad too if planning on going straight out from the session.
Cake Smash sessions are a great way to celebrate this important milestone in your baby’s life, from baby to toddler.
If you are looking for a cake smash photographer near Bristol or Bath, I would recommend that you contact me as early as possible if you want to have the images back in time for the little ones birthday. A lot of parents also chose to have the cake smash on the little ones actual birthday so do contact me today on 07828877598 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to see if I have availability for your babies special day.
Award winning newborn and baby photographer based in Bristol, Somerset and covering, Bristol, Bath, Somerset, Gloucestershire and the South West.

We look forward to meeting you!
Photography by Fiona Winter wonderland mini sessions styling guide
It’s just 2 weeks until we transform our studio into a magical winter wonderland and we are so excited.
We have put together this styling guide to help you decide what to dress your little one’s in to compliment our set up.
For the girls
We will have a range of boutique dresses in a variety of sizes for your little princess to choose from however if you wish to bring your own we have put together some of our favourites that would look amazing in our winter wonderland set.
For the boys
We recommend keeping any clothing plain/neutral, avoiding patterns and logos. A simple pair of chinos with a shirt or knitted jumper would look great. If you want to create different looks then mix it up with accessories including hats, bow tie, braces.
Children will be asked to remove shoes and socks before going into our set up so there is no need to worry about finding matching shoes for their outfit.
Head over to our Pinterest board with lots more ideas including links to buy. http://pin.it/SKKURoi
If you wish to discuss the outfit for your child/children further please do email email@example.com or call/WhatsApp Fiona on 07828 877598.
Is it too late to book?
If you are reading this but haven’t yet booked then please do book here http://photographybyfiona.bigcartel.com/product/winter-wonderland-christmas-mini-sessions as we only have a couple of slots left.
We are looking forward to seeing all our past clients as well as meeting lots of new ones.

TIPS FOR PHOTOGRAPHING YOUR OWN CHILDREN-BACK TO SCHOOL PHOTOS
Now the summer holidays are almost over, I wanted to share a few tips on capturing your own children as they head back to school. I hope these are useful for you, please comment underneath if they are.
DOWNLOAD THE PHOTOSHOP APP
My first tip has to be downloading the photoshop app if you haven’t got it already. This app is a scaled down version of the software the professions use to edit photographs. I use this app a lot of the time with my iPhone photos since it’s got the most needed features and it’s extremely easy to use. You can adjust the image contrast, exposure, brightness, add effects, borders and more and its free.
USE NATURAL LIGHT
Look for indirect natural light—the shade of a tree or an awning, or diffused by your window. When light shines beside your child, you will notice interesting soft shadows adding dimensionality to your composition. Facing your child straight on, light from the front creates a very soft, shadow-less portrait. Behind your child, backlight enhances colors and creates a bright backdrop.
SAME POSE, SAME LOCATION
Back to school time is a great opportunity to document your child’s growth. Consider creating the same photo year after year so you can compare the photos as your child grows.
BE IN THE FUN
As mum’s, we often find ourselves behind the camera rather than in front of it and these special moments are the perfect time to be a part of the action, even if only for one photo. It doesn’t matter if it’s a quick selfie, a photo of you doing their hair or outside the school gates.
You may not have much time for taking photos on the first day so it maybe a good idea to take photos of the details a few days or night before. Shoot a close-up of their perfectly laid out school uniform, their new backpack, lunchbox and those newly brought school shoes. Remember if it’s important to you or them then photograph it!
I really hope you enjoyed this blog post, likes comments and shares are much appreciated.
