Baby Milestone & Cake Smash Photographer Perth

custom portrait sessions for big celebrations

I'm Melissa Sprlyan, your baby milestone and cake smash photographer in Perth.  Photographing meaningful portraits that celebrate your baby's special milestones is a big part of what I do because once that moment has passed, it is gone - forever! My milestone sessions are truly custom and I've found parents often have a clear vision on how they wish to style baby's first birthday portraits so I aim to work together to bring this vision to life wherever I can. The session is very relaxed and often includes family portraits too, it's like two sessions in one! Baby and toddler milestones can be at any point in your child's first year and beyond, first tooth, when baby can sit, first steps, breastfeeding - well you get the idea?

Examples of our milestone photo sessions (but not limited to)

  • Three month milestone when baby may be smiling
  • Six month milestone when baby may have cut first tooth
  • Nine month milestone when baby may be sitting or crawling
  • First birthday milestone when baby may be walking and playful
  • Cake smash photography
  • Breastfeeding photography

Over the years I have built a list of tried and tested locations in Perth, ones that I know photograph milestone portraits well year round. My locations are central to Perth, easily accessible and safe for young children. Milestone sessions on location are scheduled late in the afternoon, usually ending just after sunset.

Wardrobe is crucial to ensuring your portraits are of the light style you see in my portfolio. I dress and style your entire family (with the exception of cake smash - to prevent garments being damaged) we have pieces for Dad and young children. I've found this to be one of the main reasons my clients choose me as their family photographer. We have over 100 pieces in our boutique style wardrobe, most of the pieces for Mum are flexible in sizing, bump friendly with easy access to breastfeed. I've found Mum's love the wardrobe because the process is simple, it eliminates the stress and time wasted on shopping. On average my clients save $500 per session using our wardrobe!

Celebrate your baby's first year with a Collective Membership to document important milestones. Want to see your favourite portraits every day? Together we can design a wall gallery for your home that can be built on as your child grows. Full product and pricing guide is delivered upon enquiry.

love notes

“Melissa captured my sons first birthday cake smash in the most amazing setting, she was open minded to what I was after and of course my vision came to life, more then what I ever expected. Most recently we had our spring mini session where my not so little man was not having a bar of photos at all, Melissa was very patient with him and our photos turned out beautiful. We'll most certainly be back when we're needing more photos. Thank you for all your spectacular work!”
