Spring Children’s Portraits – Detroit Michigan Photographer

May 12, 2021

Do you want gorgeous pictures to celebrate your daughter or son? Maybe you need a fresh perspective on spring children’s portraits. I’m about to show you how to get some unique portraits of your baby enjoying her very first birthday cake. Smash and all.

First step is to think about WHERE to have the photos taken. For this session, we chose THE ART ATTIC in Plymouth. It’s a super cool spot and it looks WONDERFUL in the spring. Every single person that goes there is taken aback by how peaceful and lovely it is there.

Then, and this is very important. Buy a huge hoop that can support a small child along with A LOT of moss and some high quality florals. Oh , and I can’t forget, hot glue. Lots and lots of hot glue. Once you have said glue just spend the next 3 days covering large hoop with all the moss. You should know that moss WILL get everywhere so you will need to sweep often. Also, hot glue gets REALLY hot after the gun had been on for a few hours.

you also need to build a seat for the inner ring. I build mine from a thin board and yes, covered it with MORE moss. Moss is whimsy and natural and just looks great in pics. Below are a few pics of the work in progress hoop.

Once you are done torturing your thumbs with hot glue and found the right florals, it’s time to get a model. It was Annie’s first birthday and this hoop was definitely made for a little sweet thing like her. I mean, seriously, look at her…

I was so happy with the way the DYI floral hoop turned out. I will publish a few others to my social media page as I edit the other families I photographed that day but for now, enjoy these. She is clearly getting her first birthday off to a good start!
