Having a baby is a mad, whirlwind, exciting and nerve-wracking time for most new parents.
Adapting to a new way of life can be consuming and your baby grows so fast that you don’t want to miss a single thing.
A baby photoshoot is a great way to document your growing child’s first years or so – and there are some important milestones you won’t want to miss.

You probably have a lot going on in the first few weeks of your child’s life, but a new-born baby photoshoot is a great way to document their first few weeks in the world.
Plus, when they’re tiny – and hopefully sleepy – it is a good time to capture their newness and beauty.
12 – 16 weeks
As your baby grows their awareness and their character starts to develop, you’ll probably want to capture their journey.
Between 12 and 16 weeks you’ll see lots of changes in your baby, so why not get them in front of the camera then?
6 – 8 months
At 6 to 8 months old, you child is probably getting inquisitive, starting to stand up right and become more curious about the world.
A baby photoshoot at this age will capture their curiosity and open up new opportunities for beautiful pictures that show who they are becoming.
1 year old
Their first major milestone, you’ll no doubt want to capture your little one’s first birthday with a photoshoot as special as they are.
At one-year-old, your child will be well on their way to becoming their own person, making it the perfect time to document their growing up.
You might be inspired by the family who documented their son’s – and their family’s – growing up with a photoshoot every year.
Getting the right outfit
Fashions will date and baby photos will no doubt represent the era they were taken in. Just think about your own baby photos.
You can still get the right clothing and sleepsuits to make your little one look even more beautiful for their photoshoot though. Whether you go timeless or modern, showcase you and them through your choice of outfit.
Finding a photographer
It’s important to get the right photographer for your baby photoshoots. For consistency, try and use the same photographer for each stage of your baby’s life.
A baby photoshoot is just perfect for documenting your journey as a parent and the growing journey of your bundle of joy.
