What to expect
at your Baby Photoshoot

The Baby Photoshoot Experience

Unfortunately, we can’t promise that your baby photoshoot will be as relaxing as a newborn a newborn shoot! Sessions with older babies, particularly those that are mobile, bring in that delightful touch of unpredictability and fun (and sometimes chaos)!

Whether we are dancing around and pulling funny faces or doing silly voices for older babies or chasing after cake-covered babies, it is certain to be a fun experience.

A typical baby photoshoot lasts 1-1.5 hours in the studio. We work in a baby-led way so work at a pace that you and your little one are comfortable with. We try to avoid booking more than one session per day so that we can dedicate the time to you. That also means we can be flexible to fit in around nap times so that your little one is at their best and not too tired or overwhelmed.

What to expect before your baby photoshoot

Preparing for a stress-free baby photoshoot.


We will send a full preparation guide that will give you tips on preparing at home, what to bring, clothes to bring, what to expect at the studio and directions about where to find us.

Upon arrival, expect a warm welcome and a cup of your favourite refreshment. We will already have found out any dietary requirements in our pre-session consultation form. Our goal is to put you at ease as soon as possible so we are not in a rush to get started. We’ll begin with a casual chat. We will then explain our session plan emphasising that it is all about following your baby’s lead. That means we can change and adapt to suit your baby.

We will photograph your baby alone, in various set-ups and then with family and siblings if applicable.

What to expect after your baby photoshoot


Before you leave the studio, there will be an opportunity to have a look at all of the beautiful art products we have so that you can start thinking about how you would like to display your images.

Artwork Consultation

We invite families back to the studio to enjoy a slideshow of their images one week after their baby photoshoot. We can advise and help with the design process. This session usually lasts up to 45 minutes.

Baby Photoshoot Artwork Delivery

If you are ordering just digital products, these will be ready after one week once we have put the final touches to all of the editing. For physical products, these can range from 3-4 weeks depending on production & shipping times with our supplier in Italy.
