Bump to Baby

Making plans is one of the most important things in pregnancy. As you make all those exciting baby plans, booking your newborn photoshoot guarantees to bring you joy long after your baby has grown out of everything else. It’s an investment that will last a lifetime.

Never missing a moment is something that will be very important to you over the next 18 months. To help you treasure all the wonderful stages of your baby’s incredible development, here is a brief rundown of the baby milestones that I capture…


Some mums want to start with a maternity session, which is the start of your baby’s story.

Women’s bodies go through amazing changes during pregnancy. While not all are joyfully welcome, ALL are normal! Some women get stretch marks, some don’t. Some women love being pregnant, some don’t. Some have little bumps, some big bumps. It’s all normal! All bumps are beautiful and literally are the most precious thing you have. Own it, be proud of it, treasure it!

Maternity photoshoots are generally best around 33 weeks. This is when you should be both blossoming and feel good in yourself. Bringing partners and siblings make this a family occasion to share the baby joy. Just gorgeous!

Of all the baby milestones captured in the studio, the newborn stage is by far the most popular. This does need planning.

In order to provide you with beautiful memories of those tiny fingers and toes, your session should ideally be within the first 14 days. This means you need to be in my diary before your baby arrives!

At my newborn sessions, I make sure that all members of your family are involved – parents, siblings and, of course, the family dog. What’s most important for me is giving you beautiful family-centred portraits which you can relate to and enjoy looking back at for decades to come. Just look how beautiful moments like this are…

This stage varies so much from baby to baby. Some will be able to sit unaided, which is a wonderful time to photograph them. At 6 months, they also love lying down and grabbing those chubby little toes and showing me their gummy smiles. They are still very much a baby but with far more character and personality.  

These are available as a Mini Session. See PACKAGES for details.



Your baby’s first year has witnessed amazing developments and milestones, and this is the big finale. When it comes to celebrating first birthdays, a professional cake smash is most definitely in order. So is a bubble splash and a precious family portrait.

Whatever baby milestone you want to treasure, your photoshoot will always begin with a consultation either in person or on the phone. It’s a way of us getting to know each other so I can discover what you like. This is how I can plan the perfect shoot for you!
