Of course, our beautiful newborns grow into bouncy babies in a matter of months and our newborn photography evolves into baby photography meaning things turn really fun! We aim to tell your family story, featuring your bub and the joy that they brings to your family.
We recommend booking your baby photoshoot for around 9 -14 months, when your little one is more likely to respond to our games which are intended for maximum smiles and cute expressions! Traditionally, at this age, your baby may even know a few tricks like sitting and clapping, crawling or toddling all of which make divine memories and are a big part of your baby photography shoot. Of course, there are lots of hugs and giggle-inducing games involved.
Baby photography is often best done at home, in your garden or at your favourite park. These locations tend to be slightly quieter and therefore calmer, usually offering a good range of diverse lighting to utilise (eg: open skies with bright sunshine, dappled sunlight through trees or window light). The familiarity of shooting at home usually keeps everyone feeling relaxed, plus we can shoot in your baby’s nursery, on their favourite rug, or in their cot. Also means Mum and Dad don’t need to pack a bag or travel anywhere – double win! Clothing is simple for a baby shoot. Aim for soft, block colours (pinks, blues, greys with white and denim if you like), shoes optional. Cute hats/beanies for baby are encouraged! View our baby gallery for inspiration.
We will aim to capture your photographic story in 60 mins of fun together, best scheduled for when bub is at his/her happiest, usually first thing in the morning. And great for us should bub fall asleep on the job (think dreamy sleeping angel pics)!
“ I spent such a long time desperate for a great, fun family portrait (because I am the only one who takes photos of our kids so I was mildly concerned that my kids are going to look back on their babyhood and wonder where the hell I was!) but all i could find were posed studio portraits that just do not reflect my family life in any way. And then after much searching I found Cris! And thank goodness because she was able to capture each of us individually AND in our dynamic little unit perfectly. The photos are just beautiful. I am having trouble limiting how many I frame. And Cris is just a joy to work with; she is patient, kind, fun (comes fully stocked with bribery marshmallows) and, not to mention, insanely talented. I could not recommend Little Love Photography highly enough. Thanks Cris."
"Cris is such a talented photographer who really went above and beyond to capture special images of our family. Cris clearly has great experience getting the best out of kids during a shoot, a wonderul way of working with light, and a real ability to capture the best instant of any moment. Highly recommend!"
