Baby Photographer Kingston Upon Thames
At the end of October I had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous 8-month old baby girl at my studio, close to Kingston Upon Thames.
This photo shoot was particularly special for me because her mummy and I used to be flatmates when we were both young, free and single and living in London. I was so pleased when she got in touch to book her studio baby session, and they travelled down from Oxfordshire for their shoot one Saturday morning.
The ideal time to photograph older babies in the studio is when they can sit unaided, but aren’t yet crawling. At this age we can capture lots of smiles, and natural expressions without your baby becoming frustrated because they want to crawl away! This means that the ideal age is usually somewhere between 6-10 months old, but as all babies are different you may find that your baby reaches this stage a little earlier or a little later.

When I’m photographing babies between 6-10 months in the studio, we’ll usually spend 40-60 minutes together. This gives us enough time to capture lots of gorgeous photographs of your baby, and all of the details you want to remember but isn’t so long that your baby will lose interest in what’s happening.
At the studio we have a range of gorgeous baby clothes in soft, natural colours that you can choose for your baby to wear during the shoot. You are also welcome to bring your own outfits. This baby girl’s mum brought a very special outfit with her for her daughter’s photo shoot. The pink outfit pictured below was actually hers when she was a baby, and her mum had saved it for her granddaughter. I love it when there is a story behind a photograph, and I think this was such a lovely idea to include it in the photo shoot.
