Baby Milestone Sessions
Your baby is growing up fast, and changing every day. Before you know it they're smiling, laughing, sitting and crawling. Those early days with your newborn seem a distant memory.
Milestone sessions capture your baby between 3 and 13 months, so that you can remember all of the precious details of your their first year.

Natural, Timeless Baby Portraits
I specialise in natural baby photography - no props or complicated sets. The focus is purely on your baby; capturing their personality and all of the tiny details you want to remember with a set of beautiful, timeless photographs that won’t go out of fashion.
Milestone sessions include complementary styling in my signature, natural style. You can choose outfits for your baby from my studio wardrobe - a selection of outfits in soft, neutral colours. You're also welcome to bring your own outfits for your baby to wear.
Studio Baby Photography in South West London & Surrey
Baby milestone shoots take place at my home studio close to Hampton Court (KT8 postcode.) The studio is a short walk from Hampton Court station, and there's plenty of free on-street parking.
The studio is warm, comfortable and has everything I need to safely photograph your baby. During the shoot you’re my guest. With a selection of organic teas and coffee, snacks, baby change, feeding pillows, and organic toiletries on hand I’ll make sure you have a relaxed, comfortable experience.
How Baby Milestone Sessions Work
- Milestone sessions are available to book all year round - on weekdays or on Saturday mornings. When you get in touch to book your shoot we'll find a date that works for you.
- Sessions are suitable for babies aged 3-13 months, and take place at my home studio close to Hampton Court (KT8 postcode.) The studio is a short walk from Hampton Court station and there is plenty of free, on-street parking.
- Each session lasts around an hour, but I won’t spend all of this time taking photographs. Most babies will need a break during the shoot for a feed, nappy change or cuddle. My priority is to follow your baby’s lead and take the time they need for us to capture a variety of photographs.
- The session includes complementary styling in my signature natural style. You can choose 2-3 outfits from our studio wardrobe, bring your own outfits for your baby, or strip them down to capture all of those gorgeous chubby rolls!
- After the milestone session we’ll arrange a time for you to come back to the studio and see your beautiful baby’s photographs. This is usually around a week after your session. You'll have time and space to look through your photographs and choose which ones you would like to order.
- Once you’ve placed your order, I’ll deliver digital images to you within 48 hours of payment, and printed items within 4 weeks.
The Best Time For Your Baby's Photo Shoot
Your baby's milestone session can take place at any time between age 3 and 13 months. I recommend scheduling a milestone session to capture these stages during your baby's first year:
Between 3-5 months your baby will be confident on their tummy, have the strength to support their head and neck, and may even be rolling.
This is also the age when we'll see your baby's personality emerging - gorgeous smiles and expressions that make for wonderful photographs!
6-10 months is a really fun age to capture! During this period your baby will be confidently sitting, and may even start crawling.
At this age we'll see lots of your baby's personality, from the huge grins and laughs, to those serious stares.
At the end of the year your baby is becoming a toddler, and may even be walking. We'll see even more of their personality emerging as they explore the world.
This is a popular time for a photo shoot – capturing the most special milestone of them reaching their first birthday.
