Child Portrait Sessions

My child portrait sessions are taken when baby is around 7 - 12 months before baby has started walking. We have so much fun i usually end up in fits of laughter so much that my sides ache with all the little unique expressions and noises your little ones make!  I call these sessions sitter sessions because baby has just learnt to sit on their own which is a lovely time to capture and we get lots of cooing and smiles which make for beautiful and memorable  portraits of your little one. 


The session usually lasts between 1 - 1.5 hours depending on how baby is on the day and i schedule these for just after babies morning nap and before lunch time so baby is not grouchy if wanting food or its their sleep time, but if they do want to do either while you are with me dont worry, i can capture these moments for you too!

Your baby turning one is a big milestone in their lives, from being born they have had most of their firsts, first tooth, first smile, first hair cut, first solid foods, first night they slept all the way through (hopefully)! so all of these put together shows how much your baby has come on in his/her first year and what better way to celebrate than to have a milestone portrait session or birthday cake smash & splash!

Before the cake smash i always like to get a clean portrait of baby to mark this special birthday for you and then its on to the main event .... be sure to have clothes on that you don't mind getting messy in, baby might want to have a cuddle during the cake smash and by this time they usually have a lot of cake over them which will rub off on you too :)

After the cake smash you are welcome to have a splash session if baby likes bath time, bring baby's favourite bath time bubbles and a towel and i will capture them having more fun in the tub!  Or if cake smash images aren't for your little one and you prefer something a little different, just ask ... a teddy bears picnic is another favourite of mine!
