Baby Photography

From just a few weeks after birth until their first birthdays, there are so many changes that your little ones go through in the first year of life. This is a magical time when every day they discover something new and their personalities really start to shine through.

First 3 Months :
For the first 3 months, your baby will most likely still be small enough to utilise many of the props and accessories that characterise newborn sessions. However, they'll probably be getting too active and too heavy for the more heavily posed, artistic images.
This age group does have its own special attraction though. It's between 1 and 3 months that we have the best opportunity to capture a mixture of shots with the eyes open plus some peaceful sleepy images over the course of a single session.


3 - 6 Months :

While there's still a chance at some sleepy shots with this age group, these sessions are really about the little smiles and facial expressions as your little one's personality starts to emerge. Your baby will be starting to hold his/her head up unsupported, smiling, cooing and kicking their legs which gives us some great opportunities to capture their developing character.


6 Months to 1 Year :

Once your baby is able to sit unsupported, it opens up a whole new range of possibilities. At this age he/she will be active and curious about the environment, offering up the potential for interaction with props and lots of eye contact with the camera.

Please note, that all babies develop at their own pace. The age groupings  on this page are very broad and cover a wide range of developmental stages. This is only intended as an approximate guide to what you can expect from a photography session at each age.
