WHAT IS THE BEST AGE FOR A BABY PHOTOSHOOT?
We advise that baby sessions are booked from four to six months onwards. At this age your baby is more aware, is able to focus and has better head control.
Babies of four months plus can be very giggly, which can make for some fantastic shots. If your baby is younger than four months, please just give us a call and we can assess whether you should wait a few weeks longer.
Most people book a baby session because they have either missed the newborn stage or wanted to wait a little while until their baby is more interactive. After four months old, babies have gained good control of their arms and will often be smiling a lot. After six months is also lovely when they’re able to sit up.
WHAT CLOTHES SHOULD I BRING?
Please bring all clothing you wish to have featured in the shoot to your session. We suggest that babies come dressed in a plain babygro with a couple of different outfits to change into. From modern trends to the comfort of your own favourite clothing, we will do our utmost to tailor your shoot to your preferences, capturing images for you to treasure. and refreshments will be offered throughout the session to make sure you are refreshed and at your best throughout.
If you plan to do a ‘cake smash’ session (which is a lot of fun) please ensure that, not only do you bring your own cake and candles, but also you bring extra clothes to change into after the fun is over!
CAN I BRING MY CHILD(REN) TO THE PHOTOSHOOT?
Absolutely, it is possible to include a sibling photograph in your baby photography session.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY BABY IS POORLY?
We are happy to reschedule if this happens but please let us know as soon as possible. If this is the case we can transfer your deposit to your rescheduled session if we have more than 24 hours’ notice.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY BABY CRIES OR DOESN'T SETTLE?
Many parents worry ahead of their session that their baby will cry and that we will be unable to get the images they had hoped for. But don’t worry, and be rest assured that each session is very calm and relaxed, and that hopefully includes the baby. All babies cry at some time so if your baby does cry, we will take our time to make sure they are happy again with a small feed, a wind or a cuddle, just as you would pacify them at home. Babies might sometimes squeak a little when they are moved while asleep, but please don’t worry about it – it won’t prevent the session from running smoothly. If for any reason we feel the baby is unhappy with the shoot and their position, we will stop. Their comfort and your happiness is of paramount importance.
