Baby Photo Shoots

Sessions include Dinky Donuts & Little Sitter

Your baby will grow more in their first year then they will ever again. Just look how they have changed from being a newborn baby already!.

I love Newborn Photography but as they grow your start to see their little personalities develop. At 6-10 months  your baby will be sitting on their own. I love seeing their adorable little rolls of squidgey-ness which will disappear when they start walking. I love how they have discovered their toes, they will try and try to get them in in their month along with everything else.

Little Sitter Session

Ideally you want to book 2/3 weeks after baby is first sitting unaided as they will be much stronger and more confident. This is normally around six months old but all babies are different so maybe earlier or later.These images are very natural not posed your baby will just be having fun. I have a selection of wooden toys that they like to explore which make a nice addition to your final images


Dinky Donuts Session


I offer this session as an alternative to a cake smash, this is a mini session so doesn't include the pre-smash portrait session. However the bath splash is included as babies will need to be cleaned up. 




Once you have decided you want to know more, we will schedule a consultation (in person at my studio, over the phone via Zoom or by email. During the consultation we will discuss your shoot requirements and detailed pricing information. We will also discuss wardrobe and final products to complement your home. There is a £95 booking fee to pay, this includes the time for the shoot, use of props & fabrics, full editing of you final images this is then deducted from your final collection cost. 

Your Session

Your photo shoot will take place at my studio in Braintree. I will guide you through the entire process to create beautiful photographs for you. After your session, I will carefully select the best images and edit them to my classic style.

Ordering Appointment

When your portraits are ready we will meet for your ordering appointment. You will be able to see your beautiful images and have the opportunity to select the exquisite products, including wall art and our portrait folio box. I will guide you through the entire process and help you select the best way to present each photograph and create custom wall art that you will be proud to display in your home forever.
