Professional baby photography from

3 months

An older baby photoshoot is a great way to document the growth of your little one as their personality starts to develop with many parents choosing to book an older baby photoshoot at their newborn session. 


Baby photoshoots are best done at; 

  • 6-9 months (when your baby will sit unsupported for several minutes)

  • 12 months (birthday celebrations!)


We often celebrate FIRST BIRTHDAYS in the studio with a birthday shoot. 


Less is more

I believe your images should be timeless and the beauty of your baby tells the story not an image full of props.


A typical baby photoshoot will last no more than an hour, any longer and your little one will likely become tired and a little grumpy which doesn’t make for great images. It’s best to plan your shoot around nap times. Family members are welcome to get involved.


It’s best to book as early as possible to ensure availability with weekend appointments typically filling up 3-4 months in advance.


Let’s create memories together for your family to treasure forever.

Your words of love

Taking a toddler to a shoot is a challenge and a half and you feel that you have to apologise in advance (a million times) for their inability to do as they’re told and smile, but with Melanie it was effortless and so reassuring! She rolled with it and captured some lovely natural images. She put us both at ease and I would 100% recommend her to anyone with a boisterous boy!

After having a newborn shoot done we decided to have another done at 6 months the studio is relaxed and welcoming. Melanie was fantastic with James again just as she had been previously and got some fantastic photos. The difference in his hand and foot impressions really show how much he had grown in just 6 months!

Wow what can I say. Mel produces pieces of wonder to treasure for the rest of our lives. Her patience and love with both of my children has been amazing and she is totally the baby whisperer!! Thank you for the most treasured items in our home (apart from the children obviously!)
