We share some of our favourite birthday photo and portrait session ideas to make your birthday the best birthday ever!
Who else loves birthdays? Birthday photoshoots are one of our favourite photo sessions to shoot as it's a day of celebration, and while we do get many photo requests for teen birthday shoots to baby birthday shoots, our main requests by far are from adults who just want to have some awesome photos for themselves and are celebrating getting one year older. Whether it's a birthday gift for a friend, or a gift for yourself, we have you covered for your dream birthday shoot!
We have our birthday portrait sessions available for booking as well as booking your birthday party event with us or just send us a message for a custom shoot request and we can also build you a custom package for your birthday. Your dream birthday shoot is just a message away!
Our new adult birthday portrait page dedicated to birthday portraits is available for fun birthday ideas for your own photoshoot
Here are a few of our favourite birthday photo shoot ideas, but we always love to accommodate your birthday requests as best as we can.
The Glamour Birthday Portrait Photo Session - Elevate Your Birthday with High Glamour
Most of our adult birthday photo sessions happen in our home studio, and are certainly not too different from our regular portrait sessions, but they are all about glamour, and making you feel awesome about being one year wiser!
Cocktail dress, elegant colours, heels, jewelry, we absolutely love seeing our clients look their best to celebrate their birthday. Many of our clients book with one of our professional hair and makeup artists, or have their hair and makeup done by a friend. We always suggest to have your hair and makeup professionally done, as it is your birthday after all.
Background Options for your Birthday Shoot
We offer choice of plain background, white, light grey, dark grey or black, and we also offer the additional option of colour background swap for your retouched photos.
Birthday Balloons and Other Props for your Birthday Session!
It's not every day you hit 19, or 18, or 30, or 40. In fact, you only hit it once in your lifetime (I wish I was forever 20 myself)! Many of our clients bring with them birthday balloons with them to celebrate their newest year. Just let us know ahead before booking on what you wish to do, and we can help you with your vision for your birthday portrait session.
Birthday Gift Ideas - Boudoir Photo Sessions
What about birthday gift ideas for your SO and you have been searching for ideas? After our Christmas and Valentine boudoir session, our next most popular reason for getting a boudoir session is for a birthday or an anniversary. We have many of our boudoir clients book a special birthday themed boudoir shoot. Some of our clients also giftwrap themselves for their shoot or have special ribbon outfits.
For boudoir ideas and some more of our work, please visit our boudoir photo section on our page. You can always contact us with your ideas before booking and we can provide fun tips for your birthday gift boudoir session.
Another Birthday Gift Idea - Gift Cards! The Perfect Birthday Gift for a friend
What if the birthday is for someone else, your daughter, or a friend, and you want to give them something special for their birthday? This is where our gift cards can help you with the perfect gift! Our gift cards are personalized and unique to the person and they can printed if you would like to give the gift card in an envelope for their birthday. And they can use it for any type of portrait sessions. We have done birthday gift vouchers from anything to outdoor glam photos, to boudoir sessions and even family photos as well. Message us if looking to purchase a gift card, and we can customize it for you.
Birthday Parties and Special Birthday Events
Birthday parties and the word event has been a bit of a taboo in the past year (understatement of the year), but as we are starting to do them again, and I am sure the parties at the end of 2021 and 2022 are gonna be some of the biggest parties ever seen!
We have lots of experience with events and parties, and we may be available for your birthday party as well. Tell us of your date and the hours of coverage you are looking for, and we can be there to take your photos. We can also travel in your party limo as you celebrate your birthday in Calgary. Let's make your current birthday one to remember!
For the rest of 2021, we are offering birthday party bookings a special offer for your birthday party guests, 25% off their own portrait session where we give your guests a special card from us. Ask us while booking for details.
