Once you’re out of the newborn stage, it’s time to start thinking about capturing your child’s baby & childhood portraits! Please take a moment to check out the artist’s portfolio so you can get an idea of the style of images we create and so you know what to expect in your own gallery: http://www.elenamasonphotography.co.uk/babieschildren.html
Older baby milestones and child sessions are some of the artists’ favorite sessions. Baby belly laughs, tiny feet, gummy smiles, first steps, – there are so many moments in those ages and stages that we want to remember as parents. It goes so fast, and having these memories captured becomes even more precious with time and distance.
Babies We don’t have a set schedule for baby portraits. Because each family has different needs and wants, we don’t create a pre-determined schedule for babies. We typically aim for milestones over ages – sitting, crawling, walking – rather than time tables. But we’ll work with you to determine the best timing for those milestones you don’t want to forget. If I had to pick an ideal schedule, I’d say: newborn, 4 months, 7 months, 12 months. We’ve found our babies are more solidly sitting at 7-8 months rather than 6 months, and 9 – 10 months (before they’re walking) has some great expressions. But if you want a set 4-month or 6-month schedule, for example, we’ll help you make that happen.
Infants who are not yet walking are invited into the studio. Otherwise, all babies and children are photographed outdoors in the area’s parks, trails, fields, and forests. Once baby is walking, all sessions are scheduled outside! So many beautiful natural possibilities!
Investment: Session Packages start at £125 and move up from there depending on what you are wanting. I have mini sessions and full session types available. Aside from your digital collection we also offer the most beautiful custom heirloom albums, gallery canvas, photographic prints, and other fine art products. Your gallery is ready for viewing approximately 3-4 weeks after your portrait session. You will see your gallery of final images, as well as all the prints, products, gorgeous albums etc available to you.
