Bellies, Babies and Bambinos

Our baby photography is a brilliant way to document your child’s first year. Pictures with that guaranteed awwww factor. Avoiding gimmicks and trends, we shoot in a natural style. This means your pictures will stand the test.  Comprising of three Photoshoots over a year, we’ll cover that tiny newborn look through to those first wobbly steps. You tell us when you think the time is right and we’ll be there.


Complimentary Bump shoot

Book our special baby package and take up our offer of a complimentary bump shoot at the studio. 


Newborn ( Photoshoot 1 )

We get close up and creative capturing your babies newborn look. Tiny toes, wrinkly fingers, eyes shut tight, pouty little lips and maybe tufty hair! . The best images of newborns are in a nappy or birthday suit, as well as the snuggly fairy soft blanket or sheet. We will also take pictures of you both bonding with your baby. Skin on skin cuddles with Mummy and emphasising just how tiny your baby is in Daddies arms.


Around 6 months ( Photoshoot 2 )

This is all about fun.  Rattles, Squeaky Toys, Colours, Giggles and silly noises to get pictures full of happiness. This is also a great time to get others involved too for some fabulous family portraits. Nanna’s and Granddad’s perhaps ? 


First Steps ( Photoshoot 3 )

This photoshoot will probably be outside. A local Park to feed the ducks perhaps or maybe even the seaside ? Lots of lovely pictures capturing family fun.


Viewing your pictures.

About a week after each shoot, we will invite you to the studio to view a beautiful audio visual presentation of your pictures. This is a great time to look closely at our albums and wall products choose your favourite pictures to buy and put in our beautiful presentation products.

Family Portraits

And before we knew it they were all grown up….

How many great pictures have you got of all of you together ?

I know you will have hundreds of pictures on your phone ? Choose a couple that are a decent enough quality to print out and have framed. Good luck with that task ……..


Here’s an idea for you ….

Over the school holidays we take time out as a family to photograph our children. Once or twice a year we plan and organise a photoshoot. After each shoot we choose two or three images. These edited pictures go into their personalised leather portfolios.

The idea is, by the time they reach 18, we will have created an amazing collection of pictures which document each year of their childhood. It is incredible how quickly they grow up. How quickly they change.

This is our present as parents to each of them. Our hope is they will cherish the pictures forever.


Do this for your own children

Once a year make time to have a family photoshoot day. Choose a different season every year. Use the same location or choose places that are special to you. After each shoot choose just a small selection of your absolute favourites. Remember, less is more. Keep those prints safe. Build up a collection for them. A unique and fabulous 18th birthday present to treasure.
