Babies with their cakesmash parties aren’t the only ones who can celebrate at Crave Images!

The beautiful birthday girl

I host birthday parties for all ages and even hen parties for those looking to celebrate in style.

For the purpose of this post, I have included images of my own daughters photoparty at Crave Images.  Lamaya turned 11 in October, and gathered with 8 of her friends in the studio in East Kilbride to celebrate the occasion.  This was just a few weeks after the studio opened and for the first time I got to really use the whole 1000sqft of the main studio!


During the 2 hour and 15 minute time slot, the children can have individual and group shots taken, as well as each guest photographed with the birthday girl/boy.  Both ‘beauty’ shots and fun shots will be taken to appeal to the kids and the parents!  There will be a selection of background colours and styles to choose from, and the children are welcome to bring a change of clothes for more variety in the images.

Feel free to theme the party!  Princesses, heroes, villains, divas and rockstars… even onesies!  Anything is possible, just make sure everyone will be comfortable.  My daughter went for Divas & Rockstars which worked well with their outfit changes.  We began with a girly pink party theme for some beauty shots before getting changed in to more comfortable clothes.  The second half of the party had a ‘photobooth’ feel to it, with props making the rockstars come to life.  They formed 3 mini bands and really got in to character!  Lamaya11079

I can work with you to help theme your party to make it completely unique.  There are a variety of colour options available and different textured backgrounds including an icy blue ‘frozen’ style!  Whatever theme or colour scheme, the children always bring the photos to life with their individuality and character.

Of course, some children are more confident than others, and I will use my judgement and experience to get the best out of the more reserved children to help them shine!  Music is played throughout to eliminate any awkward silences.  I begin with group photographs which slowly eases the children in to the flow of the party and when they start to loosen off, I will photograph each of them individually in a variety of poses to make them feel like the centre of attention.  Of course, the birthday girl/boy gets some extra camera time and is always the centre of attention.
