Powder Paint Session.... Lets get messy!

If your little one is approaching their first birthday, a powder paint session is great fun and an alternative to Cake Smash.

What is a Powder paint Session? 

The shoot will last around 45 mins to an hour. I do the sitting in 3 stages. I Firstly do some birthday inspired photos then Ill bring the powders out and we pop them down in front of your baby for him or her to touch and feel and cover themselves in!  Afterwards, I bring the bath-tub out and fill it with a little bit of warm water & some bubbles, to clean them off and to take some cute bath-time photos too, to complete your session. The whole sequence of events makes for an adorable batch of photos!

What should my baby wear during the session?

Your baby can rock three outfits during this shoot. One outfit for their birthday style photos, which won't get dirty, then one for the powder bit, which will get a little messy. I recommend just shorts or a tutu so their skin is on display! They can then rock a cute swim wear set or bath cap at the end too. 

What should I bring with me?

Bring a towel and baby wipes for them for afterwards and old clothes for you because you may get covered in coloured powder too! Warning: This type of shoot is NOT for the faint hearted! It is very messy! Be prepared! 

Preparing your baby for the session

It helps if your baby is used to getting dirty. Let them play with flour or sand or something with a similar texture to get them used to the feeling of having this substances on their hands and skin.  

How much is the session?

Just the shoot ......  It is just £40.00 for any shoot, which is payable when you book, to reserve your slot. This price includes one 5 by 7 print. After your shoot, I'll then edit a gallery of 60 photos for you to choose from and you then use my standard price list to order from, after your shoot. Prints start from £8.50 & digital images range in price from £40 for one image to £220 for 60 images.

The all-inclusive option ..... Or to make things easy, why not opt for an all-inclusive session, which includes your shoot, your 5 by 7 print and all 60 digital images, available to download straight from my website. This package has a total value of £260 - but you'll pay a discounted price of just £200. This must be pre-paid before your session & saves you a massive £60 overall.  Additionally, with this option, if I take more than 60 images during your session (which is not unusual), I will include the rest for FREE within your download too! 

Is the powder safe?

This powder is completely safe and non-toxic. It is a gentle session. We let your baby play with the powder at their own pace! We will make sure your baby is completely safe at all times. We will not let them inhale the powder and we will make sure it doesn't go in their eyes. 

Will it wash off my skin?

Yes, with a bit of soap and water the colour will wash from hair and skin - don't worry if it doesn't come out straight away. In cases of heavy powdering, you may experience some temporary colouration of hair and skin. Repeat washing may be necessary. In my experience, the yellow is the hardest to come out!

Will it stain clothing?

The dye I supply may stain clothes. 

Is it environmentally friendly or bio-degradable?

The powder I supply is almost entirely food grade raw materials so it has minimal impact on the environment.
