A baby photo shoot before their 1st birthday

Back to blog
Booking a baby photo shoot before your little one reaches a year old can be a brilliant idea, why wait?

While we can have you and your family into the studio for a baby photo shoot at any point in time, there are a few stages that are brilliant and certainly worth coming into capture.

Mother and baby portraits London


This is a phase that passes in the blink of an eye. In order to get the sleepy newborn shots that people love, you must book the shoot to take place in the first couple of weeks after birth.

When: First 10 days of life

To Book: Call around your 20 week scan (it’s important to get your date in the studio’s diary, so that we know to expect your arrival around that time.)

Recommended Location: Studio or home

The best ages to photograph your baby

3-5 Months

This is a nice time to update your pictures of your little one. It’s important that your baby is able to push up on his or her front at this shoot in order to get a good range of images.

When: Baby is proficient at tummy time

To Book: Three to four weeks in advance

Recommended Location: Studio or home

Our favourite time to photograph your little ones

6-8 Months

Our absolute favourite time to photograph babies, hands down. They are able to sit up on their own and really engage with the camera (and aren’t too quick to move around and give you the run around in the studio!). If you only choose one baby photo shoot, this is the one we’d recommend.

When: Baby is sitting up unaided

To Book: Three to four weeks in advance

Recommended Location: Studio

When: As close to the first birthday as possible

To Book: Three to four weeks in advance

Recommended Location: Studio
