Newborns - Ideally newborns should be photographed in the first 3-4 weeks. We recommend morning shoots as this is usually the best time of the day for babies and we also try to work around a feed, this helps to settle baby and allows us to try and get some beautiful sleeping shots as well.
Babies ( 4-6 months) - Babies at this age are still small, and are getting good at holding their heads up whilst on their tummy. Family interaction and connection photos are lovely at this age.
Babies ( 7-10 months) - Babies are now beginning to sit up and crawl. They can be very expressive with their wide eyes eager to explore the world around them.
Babies (first birthday) - One year olds are quite mobile, some are even walking. At this stage they can be quite a lot of fun to photograph.
What to wear
People often ask what they should wear for a family portrait. Plain colours and classic clothing (like denim) are always comlimentary. The most important thing is to wear something comfortable that makes you feel special. Newborns and babies are best shot au-naturel. Toddlers and young children should bring along any favourite toys or security blankets as this makes them feel comfortable and they make for more personalised props within the shoot.
