During a babies first year there are some special milestones and key developmental stages each with their own memories.
There are no strict rules, you can choose to have a session at any stage during your baby's first year but typically the following milestones are popular:
1- 6 months Your baby has uncurled and is starting to explore their environment, smiling and interacting. I am sometimes able to pose these babies if they manage to sleep during their session, as well as taking a variety of lovely awake shots too including tummy time !! You can choose from an extensive range of accessories including hats, bonnets, headbands, outfits, wraps, blankets and layering fabrics, as well as a variety of props including rustic wooden bowls and vintage baskets.
6 - 9 months - Your baby may be sitting up or lifting themselves off the ground, this brings opportunities to pose them sitting in our vintage baskets or tin bath, these sessions are fun and focus on capturing the personality of your little one.
9 -12 month - Babies may be standing, cruising or crawling, these sessions focus on celebrating you baby coming up to their 1st birthday, capturing them in their last months as a 'baby' before they gain more independence, we can also combine this Milestone session with a Cake Smash at no additional cost.
Experience has taught us that the best pictures of families are when they are relaxed and often caught unawear. Prefect for little people who can often become shy in strange places or when meeting new people !!
Your outdoor family session will focus on capturing beautiful images of your family at it's best. Enjoying precious time together in the great outdoors, laughing, playing, smiling, and interacting. If you're looking for natural lighting, real locations, happy faces and true family moments. As mothers ourselves we've learnt that children are always at their best when they are allowed to run free, explore, interact and have fun. Whether its a ride on daddy's shoulders, cuddles with mummy, jumping in puddles or chasing siblings around. there are so many special moments your family naturally shares that can be captured and bottled up forever more!
Babies are small for just an instant...blink and you miss it amongst the haze that is those first 8 weeks of life with a newborn. We will capture their tiny hands & feet, button noses & calm sleepiness (most of the time anyway !!) We will help you remember all that is new and fresh about them. They are brand new people, new members of your family and they will change so quickly.
