OLDER BABY PORTRAITS

Top 10 Newborn and Maternity Photographer: Guild 2023

LOOKING FOR AN AWARD WINNING BABY PHOTOGRAPHER IN THE BISHOPS STORTFORD AREA?

HOORAH, YOU’VE FOUND ONE!

BABY AND 1ST BIRTHDAY PHOTOGRAPHY IN BISHOPS STORTFORD, HARLOW, CHELMSFORD AND SURROUNDING AREAS.

Your baby grows up and changes so fast during their first year. From that tiny baby at newborn to a baby-toothed, sitting up person who smiles at the world! Then before you know it, their 1st birthday is here and you don’t feel like you’ve blinked! As an award winning Baby Photographer in Essex, I love to capture these tiny humans as they smile and engage with the world. Capturing them sitting from around 7 months is  lovely way to remember their happy smiles before they start moving around, or why not celebrate your baby’s first Birthday with a Cake Smash and Splash and watch them make messy fun out of eating cake and washing it off with a bubble bath after. Baby Photography isn’t just about getting incredible images and pieces of art for the walls, it is also a fun and enjoyable way to cherish the memories and freeze time before they start school a few years later!

The sessions are short and sweet so as not to exhaust your ilttle one and we time them around their sleep to make the most of your babies happy time.  Partners and other children are welcome in the studio too to make the most of a session and to include some family portraits if you’d like them.

GOT SOME
QUESTIONS?
When should I book my baby portrait session?

You can book your baby portrait session at any time, but please be aware I often get booked up a few weeks and sometimes months in advance, I generally find babies are happier in the mornings, so please consider this and their sleep time when booking.

How old should my baby be for the best pictures?

Babies all have milestones at different times, but usually babies start to sit up unaided around 7-8 months, which is a lovely time for their baby photography. Cake Smashes are usual;lly a few weeks before their Birthday so you can have pictures for the day.

What if my baby or I are unwell on the day?

Please let me know if you can’t make it as soon as you are able and I will do my best to reschedule, at no extra cost. I’d much rather have a happy baby.

What should I bring?

I believe in creating stylish portraits, so I have a small selection of bodysuits and little outfits for sitters and older babies, although it is also nice for you to bring a few options too. If you are booking a cake smash session you need to bring the cake, an outfit or two (one clean and one messy) and a towel for afterwards!.

What if my baby doesn't smile?

Not all babies are big smilers and I actually really love a big pout! I will work with you and your baby to give you gorgeous portraits either way and if you want to try again another day, this is fine too. We all have off-days!

Can I bring someone with me?

Yes of course! Either your partner (and/or children) are very welcome to your babies photoshoot, or you can bring a friend or relative for company! I do limit this to 5 people maximum though because of space.
