Mini Baby Photo Shoots in South West London

Every month I offer a limited number of Mini Baby Milestone Sessions on Friday mornings.

These shorter baby photo shoots are perfect for families who want a handful of beautiful images of their baby, or regular photo shoots every few months to document their baby’s first year.

The sessions are suitable for babies aged 3 to 13 months and take place at my Hampton Court studio.

On this page you can find out more about what’s included in a mini baby milestone session. At the end of the page you can also check the next mini session dates and book your place.

If you have any questions about booking a baby photo shoot please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

What's Included In A Mini Baby Milestone Session?

  • Mini baby milestone sessions take place on selected Friday mornings at my Hampton Court studio.
  • Each session lasts 30 minutes, which gives us plenty of time to capture a set of gorgeous baby photographs.
  • These sessions are just for your baby – if you would like to have family photographs too my longer baby milestone sessions will be a better fit.
  • Before your session, I’ll send you preparation emails with tips on choosing outfits for your baby and how to prepare for a relaxed session. This helps you feel confident and prepared beforehand.
  • During the session I’ll take a variety of photographs of your baby in my signature natural style.
  •  After the session, you’ll be able to choose your ten favourite photographs to keep as high-resolution digital images, beautifully edited and ready for you to print, share with loved ones, or display in your home.

What To Expect From Your Mini Baby Milestone Session Experience

Before Your Mini Baby Milestone Session

Before your session I’ll ask you to complete a short, online questionnaire so that I can find out about your baby and their personality and tailor the shoot to them.

You’ll also receive emails from me with tips to help you feel prepared, including a ‘what to wear’ guide to help you choose flattering and comfortable outfits for your baby, and recommendations on what you do and don’t need to bring to the session.

What Happens On The Photo Shoot Day?

During the session my goal is to capture a variety of beautiful, natural photographs of your baby. 

I’ll usually ask you for some help to position your baby for each photograph, and keep them feeling relaxed and happy. 

Once we’ve finished the photographs you can all relax, and it might be time for your baby to have a nap! Lots of clients choose to make a day of it and stay in the local area to have coffee, lunch or a walk. 

Viewing The Photographs From Your Mini Baby Milestone Session

Two weeks after your mini session I’ll send you a link to a private online gallery where you can view the fully edited final images and choose which photographs you’d like to include in your package.

The gallery will be live for 3 days whilst you choose which photographs you’d like to keep.

At this stage you’ll also have the option to purchase extra digital images or prints.

Once you’ve finalised your selection your digital images will be delivered to you within 48 hours.
