Children's Portrait Photographer, Rainham, Essex, London.

If you missed out on professional photos of your little one when they was newborn - before you know it they are 3/4 months old - and you decide you want some photographs done, then I always recommend doing it once they are sitting. I have emails and calls so often from mummies that are gutted they never booked their baby in for newborn photo's when they was 1-2 weeks old, and that they want some done "before they get any bigger".

I always recommend waiting until your little one can sit up unaided, although I would still photograph them at 3/4 months if you insisted. When I first started working with children, I photographed every single age and was told all the time that I was one of few photographers that done this and I never understood why. As time went on, I shot more children that were past the newborn stage and could not yet sit up and it soon showed why so many photographers tend to wait till babies are sitting. There are only so many photographs you can get with a baby laying on their back, don't get me wrong you can still get gorgeous images but they don't really vary and can be very much the same.  

So when Dawson's mummy contacted me for photo's we made sure to get him booked in when he could sit up, or just about :) He was a little superstar, we got a few outfit changes from him and he smiled away the whole time. I'm sure you will agree from the photo's he is a big cutie pie!

If you would like to book your own little bub in for some beautiful photograph's then we can get them in for when they are around 7-9 months old, or why not book for a cake smash package for their 1st birthday?
