Baby photography sessions generally take place when your baby is 6 weeks to 18 months old. Don’t worry if you have missed the opportunity to have your newborn photographed within the first two weeks of their birth, it is not too late to still get some beautiful imagery. Your baby will not be as flexible as a newborn as their little joints start hardening as they get older and we possibly won’t be able to get the same poses as with newborns that are photographed under two weeks of age.
Babies start developing their own little personalities around four months of age. This is often a milestone that parents like to capture. Their beaming captivating little smiles are just too gorgeous for words!
The ideal and most exciting time to photograph your baby is around 6-8 months when they are sitting confidently but not yet crawling. At this stage you can capture their adorable personalities. I have a selection of clothing, props, hats and accessories for sitting babies.
Babies that are crawling and walking will not necessarily sit still for any length of time. They will instinctively want to explore the studio. Over the years we have developed various ways of keeping them in place to secure that amazing image!
Please bear in mind when booking your baby session that your baby should be happy and well! In my experience, a sick or tired baby never leads to a successful photographic outcome. When booking your session, it is always advisable to book at a time that is not too close to your baby’s nap time. Please call ahead as soon as possible if your baby is unwell.
