2 – 4 months
In this first session, the baby will be a little bundle of joy an ideal time to capture them before they start to move around.
We tend to have baby mainly in a nappy (we cover nappy with various shawls and fabrics) as they are between sizes in clothes at this point and they tend to ride up around the neck.
We will also do one tummy shot, obviously depending on your baby’s development.
6 – 8 months
By the 2nd session, they will probably now be sitting up and interacting a lot more, possibly even crawling. They should be a lot more alert with plenty of smiles.
This is usually when your baby is sitting unaided and tends to be around 6 to 7 months, for this session it is worth bringing three outfits and any accessories, for example, a flat cap or bonnet. Props include wicker chair, laundry basket, suitcase, shabby chic crate!
12 – 18 months
For the third session, we will possibly see them taking their first steps and becoming very inquisitive and playful.
At around 12 months they will probably be standing but ideally before they are walking. This is a high energy fast-moving session, and we offer the option for parents to be photographed with their child. The props used in this session include a giant bean bag, a bubble machine, circle in the wall, big box and various stools and chairs.
Ideally, if you could bring along two outfits for this session and it is often best not to try and change them before the session it is ideal that they are already dressed in the first outfit.
Our Watch Me Grow sessions are on Wednesday’s and Friday’s.
You can also be entered into our monthly Photo Competition where you could win either £5,000 or a gift voucher.
You will also receive a Free gift worth £135

Andrew captured our dog perfectly - not an easy task with an over-excitable border terrier who refuses to sit still! The photos from our shoot are fantastic quality and make us smile every time we look at them. A lovely, relaxed, but professional experience. Thank you!

What an exceptional service from Andrew! Made our baby girl who was 5 months at the time laugh and smile so easily and we felt at ease knowing she was happy and comfortable in front of the camera. We adore the pictures, very high quality. We photographed our daughter in her christening gown which was 35 years old (family heirloom) and he captured it beautifully. I only noticed her hat was on the wrong way round after Andy had packed up for the day but he set everything back up and re-shot with the hat on correctly, very professional and clearly wants to make his customers happy. He takes pride in his work that is evident. If you want your baby to feel relaxed in a happy environment, look no further. Highly recommend.

Frequently asked questions.
When will I be able to view the photographs?
We know how excited you are to see the pictures; therefore, we will arrange a viewing for you as soon as is possible this will usually be one or two weeks after the session at the studio.
If you want to bring your extended family, e.g. grandparents, we would love to meet them.
Can the rest of the family be included in the photographs?
Yes, Mum, Dad and siblings can be included when we get to session three as, during the earlier stages, time does not allow it.
It is also not possible to include this in the final folio memento.
