East Molesey Baby Photographer | Natural Baby Portraits
Hello, and thank you for visiting my website! I’m Clare, a baby and family photographer based in East Molesey.
I photograph babies at my purpose-built home studio in Molesey, and am known for natural, timeless baby photography with no props, no elaborate backgrounds and no babies in baskets.
I also photograph families outdoors. Outdoor family sessions are usually best suited to families with babies aged 6 months and older.
You might be here because you’re thinking about booking a baby photo shoot. I’m sure you’ll want to choose the best photographer for your family, and on this page you can see some of my work, and find out a little more about having a photo shoot with me.
If you have any other questions or would like to chat about having your baby photographed please don’t hesitate to get in touch. It’s always wonderful to hear from other Molesey families!
The Best Age For Baby Photography
Your baby’s first year is full of special milestones. But your baby’s age at the time of the shoot will affect the kind of photographs we can capture. I offer three different studio sessions for babies of different ages:
Newborn Sessions: For Babies Aged 5-14 days
During their very first weeks, babies are typically very sleepy and enjoy being curled up in the foetal position they were in in the womb. This makes it an ideal time to capture lovely curled up poses, and all of the tiny details that make your baby unique.
All of my baby sessions are baby-led, but this is never so important as in the first weeks as you’re all settling into family life with your new baby. Most babies of this age need regular feeds, nappy changes or cuddles with you, and newborn sessions allow plenty of time for all of these things. This means that we can work at your baby’s pace and you don’t need to worry about how your little one will perform – I’ll give them all the time they need.
Newborn sessions also allow plenty of time for parent, family and sibling photographs.
Older Newborn Sessions: For Babies Aged 2 – 8 weeks
If you’ve missed the ‘two week window’ for a newborn session all is not lost. I also photograph older newborns up to 8 weeks.
These sessions are very much tailored to your baby’s age; up to 5 or 6 weeks we’ll usually capture a mixture of awake and sleepy photographs. After this it’s likely your baby will be awake for most or all of the session, but being that little older will have lots of lovely expressions and maybe even smiles to capture.
In older newborn sessions we spend around half of the time photographing your brand new baby on their own, and the other half taking family photographs.
Baby Milestone Sessions: For Babies Aged 3 to 13 Months
Before you know it, your baby isn’t a tiny newborn anymore, and they’re full of smiles, gorgeous giggles and trying to roll, sit, crawl and walk!
Baby Milestone Sessions are designed to document all of this with simple, natural photographs. These are really fun and fast paced sessions, where we can capture all of your baby’s emerging personality.
These sessions are completely tailored to your baby’s stage of development, and allow plenty of time for family photographs too.
I hope that this page has given you a flavour of what it’s like to have a session with me. Please do have a look around my website to find out more about what it’s like to work with me.
