I often suggest the morning from 10.30 am as children will soon get tired later on in the day. I am very consious of timings with naps, therefore I work around when is best for you and your child. They should have had a snack to keep them going and to bring snacks which are risk free of stains is great too.
You can book milestone sessions such as sitting up aroud 6 months old, which is priceless for those first cheeky personality captures. Then 1 year old for a portrait or cake smash session. I then recommend sometime around walking to capture that gorgeous waddle which disappers closer to 3 years old. Then after that it’s up to you! I photograph children of all ages and even in their teens.
Children’s sessions take place Monday to Thursday between 10am and 2.30pm. These days and times are flexible and to gurantee an ideal time for you, it’s best to book as early as possible. First birthday sessions are ideal to be booked in for at least two weeks before their big day. You will love sharing the images on their actual birthday or have ready for the party. Weekend availability is very limited and needs booking months in advance.
Children’s outfits are best kept simple so that they don’t date. A plain white top and jeans, or a simple dress with very little pattern. The more classic the better. On the contrary if there is a style that suits your home and will fit then please do bring outfits to complement. I’m happy to help with outfit suggestions.
For cake smash sessions, I have outfits for boys and girls, but I know families prefer to bring their own too.
