Capturing their developing personalities
In the first twelve months of your baby’s life, they will change quickly as they learn to explore the world around them and as they develop their personalities. It’s these many changes that discerning parents want to capture with a professional photographer.
My mobile studio is fully equipped with a range of backgrounds, hand-made luxury blankets and rompers from quality suppliers from around the world. All of which help me to create images that are ‘simple, natural, beautiful’; images that are timeless and focus on your baby or child.
During your child’s photoshoot I will work with you to capture the beauty of your developing baby or the personalities of your children.
Most baby sessions ideally take place between 6-9 months old or even 12 months for that special first birthday celebration. A typical baby or child photoshoot session lasts 1–1½hrs. This is to ensure that your little ones don’t become too grumpy or tired. With this in mind, it is best to arrange the time of your photoshoot to avoid nap times!
After the photoshoot, we will work together to select your favourite images and create stunning wall art and beautiful, cherished keepsakes that are tailored to your taste, home and lifestyle.
Finally, I will hand deliver your products at a mutually convenient time.
From start to finish, your photoshoot will be a beautiful experience, fun for your children, and one that you will cherish forever.
As my diary can get incredibly busy, it is best to book as early as possible to ensure availability. Most parents make a baby photoshoot booking immediately after their newborn photoshoot. A £45 non-refundable diary retainer (deposit) is required at the time of booking.
Your words of love for Derek's
baby & child photography
Sue is such a lovely lady! She spent the afternoon with my 12 day old baby girl, Piper! I handed her over to Sue with complete confidence that she would be looked after! I cannot wait to see my gallery of pictures in a few days! I would recommend Sue to anyone!
Had a shoot with my 3week old little boy and sue was amazing! She did a great job and settling him and got some fantastic shots
Sue recently came and photographed my newborn baby boy at 11 days old. She was fantastic with him and lovely to have around. The photos are fantastic, just what we had hoped for, and Sue worked with us to help us decide what output we wanted. Sue went the extra mile and even helped us with one of the images that we went on to use for birth announcement cards. The fact that Sue comes to your home and works at baby’s pace is such a bonus. I would highly recommended Sue to anyone in the wider Reading area looking to capture those special newborn moments. Thank you!
“Couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to take pictures of my son, the pictures were so beautiful and perfect. Derek took his time and was just amazing with my son! Would highly recommend!!”
“Derek photographed my new-born daughter at only four days old, he took beautiful photos and made sure that my little one was safe and settled at all times. Derek is lovely, he made me feel so comfortable with lots of conversation which kept me entertained! Thanks again, definitely recommend!”
"Derek photographed our 1-week old baby and was amazing! He was very friendly, had the patience of a saint and was great at settling her! The photos have turned out absolutely beautiful and we are extremely pleased with the final images! We would highly recommend him to anyone wanting a newborn shoot. Thank you very much Derek! "
“Derek was amazing with my daughter, he allowed her to lead the shoot. She was a little stubborn. Derek built a relationship with Esmae before attempting to take any pictures or holding her which I think helped the shoot run smoothly. The shoot was done at Esmae’s pace and it was amazing, and the pictures are just so natural and beautiful.”
“Had a wonderful photoshoot with Photography for Little People by Derek. Rupert enjoyed mushing cake everywhere. Such a wonderful experience, highly recommended”
“Derek has a very relaxing manner and captured some lovely natural photos of my daughter. He also took the time to include my son in taking photos of his baby sister which he absolutely loved. Highly recommended.”
