Your baby’s first year is an extraordinary time like no other and there are so many wonderful opportunities for taking photographs. You can choose to celebrate all the milestones – newborn, six months and first birthday – or just the one.

Whatever you decide, I promise you images that you will love forever, capturing your baby in a unique artistic fashion. These photographs will be art that your family will be proud to hang in the house for years to come.

A baby session is the perfect way to capture your baby’s personality and cute expressions before they’re able to walk and crawl and it’s a struggle to keep them still! The session is fun and quite short and I work quickly as little ones typically have short attention spans and we want to keep your baby smiling and happy. I’ll have lots of different set ups and props planned for the photo-shoot but please bring your own outfits too!

Should I bring anything to the session?
Bring little snacks and toys that will help keep baby happy. If your baby is having issues with teething, bring a remedy just in case.
Can you visit my home or have the baby session outdoors?
Yes, of course, the home is a perfect location as baby is in a familiar environment. Outdoors sessions are great too; summer months are best for outdoors sessions.
When does the session happen?
I schedule the session around your baby’s snack and naptime. This ensures we are getting your baby naturally at their best.

What if I need to cancel?
There is a 48 hour cancellation policy. However i do understand that babies and children are prone to catching colds or becoming ill suddenly. I’ll do everything i can to reschedule your appointment to another day.
Do you require a deposit?
Yes, the session fee is payable before the shoot.
Do I receive any products in the session fee?
No. Products and packages are available to buy during your Preview and Ordering session.

Can my partner, children and I take part in a baby session?
Yes, of course!
What clothing should I wear?
Simple, neutral colours are best. My advice is avoid white and any bright colours like fuchsia pink, these colours cause a colour cast on the skin and it’s hard to remove in Photoshop. Neutral colours such as greys, beige, browns, pale pinks etc. work best in photographs. We’ll discuss clothing during our consultation once you’ve booked.
What happens after the session?
5-7 days after your session I will invite you back to the studio for a Preview and Ordering session. Your gallery will contain around 20 fully retouched images to view and I will help you decide on your favourites. Most of my clients value stunning artwork to hang on their wall, so each image has been edited and designed as a main focus piece. Take note that it is during this Preview and Ordering session that you will order and pay for any products, prints and packages. All major debit and credit cards are accepted.
