BABY SHOOT FA
When should I bring baby?
It really depends what you want to get out of your baby photos.
You can bring baby along for a shoot when they are 2 plus weeks. They will be at the very sleepy stage.
If you bring from 6 weeks onwards you might get a smile out of them.
After three months they start becoming more alert.
At five months they can be gurgling and able to prop up their heads very nicely.
At seven months they might be able to sit unaided.
You can book your baby in before your baby is born.
Should I come multiple times or a one off?
It is completely up to you but you may decide you wish to record them 6 times in the first year of life spread out from eg
2 weeks/8 weeks/4 months/ 7months/9 months/1 year.
Studio or location
I would recommend coming to the Studio for your shoot only because I have lots of props and backgrounds we can use plus it will be nice and warm in there!
However if your baby is colicky and not too well I am more than happy to come to you. Also if you have had a C section you may prefer to do the photos are your home too.
I have multiple props and backdrops for baby including scarves/hats/rugs/etc.
But feel free to bring along a change of clothes and any girlie stuff especially.
Bring baby’s scan if you like/or hospital wrist tag.
Favourite teddy bear etc.
Mummy and daddy’s wedding rings to put on their little toes etc.
Photos of baby.
Please bring them in their first outfit for the shoot. I will then undress them to their vest/baby grow then their nappy and then naked, then redress them. This is your opportunity to put them in a different outfit. Feel free to bring hats/or girlie head bands/tutus with flowers etc.
How long a shoot should I book?
If you want photos of mum/dad AND baby separately and with you all together this is perfectly doable but make sure you choose a shoot which permits enough time.
It is sometimes possible to do this all in a Mini Shoot but it will be done very fast and very much depends on your baby and is very fortunate to get all done in the time!
If you want your baby photographed with siblings in addition to mum/dad shots and separate baby shots you really will need to book in for a full hour at least.
If you have booked a 30 min shoot and it looks like it will run over I will ask if you want to carry on and extend the shoot. This would need to be paid for on the same day or the next day of the shoot.
NEW: Smash the Cake
I also now offer Smash the Cake photo shoots at baby’s first birthday.
Buttercream smash cakes made by the fully registered and insured Bakeaholic Cake Company.
You can choose from standard selection priced at £20 (as shown) design your own or bring your own cake.
Bring towels, wipes and fresh clothes to dry baby off afterwards.
I offer all see below.
If baby is not well it is best to postpone the shoot.
That’s it – if you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact me and ask!
But rest assured you will be in safe hands and have an enjoyable shoot.
