Surrey & London Natural Baby Photography
Your Baby's First Year Is Flying By...
Those early days with your newborn pass in a flash. Before you know it they’re smiling, melting your heart with their gorgeous giggles, rolling, sitting and crawling. How did your baby get so big? And why does it feel so bittersweet? You’re so proud to see them grow, but part of you wants to press the pause button and keep them this little for longer.
Imagine having a set of pictures that capture all of your baby’s scrummy details. The little expressions that make up their personality. Those big wide-eyed grins. Their gorgeous, squidgy thighs.
My baby milestone sessions do just that for you. Freezing a moment in time with natural, timeless pictures. So you can remember exactly how your baby was.
Natural, Timeless Baby Photography
I specialise in natural baby photography - no pictures of your baby sitting in props, or dressed in fancy outfits. Just simple, natural photographs where the focus is purely on your baby.
My approach is completely baby-led. I'll follow your baby's lead throughout the shoot, stopping for feeds, cuddles with you, and nappy changes as they need them.
Each session allows plenty of time to take family and sibling portraits if you would like to include these too.
Natural, Studio Photography in Surrey & London
My studio is in East Molesey, close to Hampton Court Palace.
The studio is warm, comfortable and has everything I need to safely photograph your baby and family. 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.
What Happens When You Book A Baby Milestone Session?
Before Your Baby's Photo Shoot
Before your shoot we’ll have a chat on the phone. This gives you time to ask any questions you have, and tell me about your baby so that I can tailor the shoot to you. I’ll also give you lots of practical tips to help you prepare - from what to bring to what to wear.
At Your Baby Photo Shoot
On the day of your session we'll spend around an hour together, 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 a cuddle with you. I'll follow your baby’s lead and take the time they need for us to capture a variety of photographs.
At the end of the session there's also time for family portraits. This includes photographs of each parent with your baby, sibling photographs if you have older children, and photographs of the whole family.
after The Photo Shoot
After the shoot we’ll arrange a time for you to come back to the studio and see your beautiful new photographs. This is usually around a week after your session.
At your viewing, you'll have time and space to look through your photographs and choose which ones you would like to order.
I'm confident that you will love your photographs after your session, but if this is not the case I'll refund your session fee without question.
When To Book Your Baby Milestone Session
Milestone sessions are suitable for babies aged 3 - 13 months, but the best time for a session is usually between 6-10 months when your baby can confidently sit unsupported, but isn't yet crawling.
I’m usually booked up 4-6 weeks in advance. It’s a good idea to book a couple of months before you would like to have the shoot so that you don't miss out on capturing this important milestone.
