Newborn Photoshoots For Older Babies


So, you didn’t have any professional photographs taken of your baby in the first few weeks. You meant to book something but wanted to see how you felt after the birth as you just didn’t know how life would be with a baby.

Turns out it was a little bit crazy. So crazy that memories are a little hazy amidst the lack of sleep and visitors coming and going. You have lots of pictures taken by you on your phone and pictures that friends and family took. So you still have those memories of that tiny, squishy stage.

Roll forward 6 weeks and now things are settling down. You have more of a routine going on and a happy smiley baby who is awake more and responding to you. You remember that you always wanted professional pictures taken, and you’re a little sad that you missed the opportunity, but make a mental note to look at a photoshoot for their 1st Birthday instead.

Does this sound like you?

Well, the good news is that you can still get those beautiful pictures that you wanted at the start. A common misconception is that baby photography is just for newborns. This just isn’t true, in fact, I photograph babies right up until they reach 12 weeks. Yes, your baby is bigger and no longer classified as a newborn, but there are so many advantages to waiting a little longer….

They’re awake and happy. Which means you have lots images of them with their eyes open

And because they’re more content, you will have images with beautiful smiles and expressions

Plus you will have images with the super cute poses you see in all the newborn photoshoots

And images in the beautiful floor props which parents and grandparents love so much

And finally, you will have the precious photographs of you and your baby

These are just a couple of the babies that I have photographed between the ages of 8 – 12 weeks. The sessions are super relaxed. I have outfits for bigger babies and props to suit older babies too.

The session runs in exactly the same way as a newborn session and you will have a gallery of around 20+ images to choose from, with a variety of backdrops and colours in use. For an idea of what a full gallery of images looks like, have a look at the gorgeous slideshow of Luca’s gallery, it’s a cracker!

Siblings can also be included in the session, which again with an older baby is adorable as they really connect and usually the older siblings are sooooo good at getting those happy smiles from baby, the result is just perfect.

If your baby is under 12 weeks old and you would like to capture some professional photographs of them while they’re still tiny, please do get in contact. You can find all of my pricing here. And the beauty of my sessions is that you don’t have to pay a session fee, you only pay for the images that you choose, although you are under no obligation to purchase.

I’d love to turn your precious moments into a lifetime of memories.
