WHY BOOK A MILESTONE PHOTOSHOOT?

 

Babies grow and change so quickly, not too long after they were that tiny bundle that their little features start to fill out into that mini person they're becoming. By the time they reach a couple of months their changes are even more evident and they really start to show their characters and personalities. They're start to learn new things, pull new faces, and respond to silly noises and actions. So what better way to capture this important milestone than a set of gorgeous images? When we think back, those beautiful details can become such a blur. So with professional photographs you'll always have that memory from that point in their lives.

Jade has been absolutely amazing throughout the whole process - from booking our photoshoot all the way through to viewing and ordering. Nothing is too much. We had photos done of our 8 month old and they really are magical. We ordered a 40" acrylic orb which takes pride of place in our living room. Thank you so much Jade.

We took our daughter for a photoshoot and were welcomed immediately and was able to feel at such ease. Having a baby you just don’t know what to expect. Our little girl had a few little melt downs but Jade's professionalism kicked in and she took the most amazing shots that we will be able to treasure forever. Jade is 100% amazing at her job, I couldn’t recommend anyone better and she was well worth the travelling to get to. Her work speaks for itself, thank you for capturing magical memories of our little girl.

ABOUT THE MILESTONE PHOTOSHOOTS

 

There are two options, you can have a smiler session, when your baby is 2-6 months and before they are sitting unaided. This is to capture their smiles and new found expressions, a very important milestone. Sitter sessions are for when your baby is 6-12 months, or from when they can sit up themselves with no support. Both sessions are very similar and most props can be the same for both, however the smiler sessions, as babies can't yet sit, they tend to be lying down, on their front, photos from above, and propped up. Either way, all sessions are creative, with as many or as little colours/ props/ accessories as you wish. Family and sibling images are also included at no extra cost if you wish​. This is where we'll do a mini session to get a few lovely images of you all together as well as different combinations.

We had the best experience, Jade is so friendly and especially

good with our baby boy, cannot recommend her enough.

Jade is one of the most down to earth people I have ever come across. My little girl went for a photoshoot and Jade took the most breathtaking pictures. Memories I will treasure forever. I can’t recommended Jades incredible work enough. My little girl started playing up and getting miserable but Jade worked her magic and the pictures are just out of this world. If you are looking for a photographer look no further, Jade is definitely the one for the job. We will 100% be returning in the future.

AFTER THE SESSION

 

At the end of your photoshoot we'll set a date for you to come back and view your images, which will be scheduled for around 2-4 weeks after the session. I will then process your images to the highest standard, spending time turning them into beautiful art work - giving you a wide range to choose from at your in person viewing appointment.

As I know you will be very keen to see some photos, I will get a preview onto social media within a few days as it is a great way to tag and share with your friends and family. However, if you do wish to keep your images private, this is no problem at all, just inform me of this beforehand. If you do want to see the upload, there will be a free print up for grabs too. 

 

You will then be invited back to see your gallery on slideshow with music, where I will help you chose and pick the package suited to you and your budget. I will also guide you with what images work best together for any prints and wall art you may decide to get. Please note, I am just there to advise you from my professional point of view and there is never any hard sell.

FAQ

 

WHEN DO I NEED TO BOOK?


Please book a minimum of 12 weeks in advance for your photoshoot, spaces are very limited and I would hate to have to turn you away. Sometimes we do have last minute slots so it's always worth enquiring, but earlier the better to guarantee a space and avoid disappointment.




HOW DO I BOOK?


You can book online via the booking form at the bottom of this page here. You will be required to pay a £99 deposit to secure your chosen date and time.




WHEN IS BEST TO BRING MY BABY?


Smiler sessions: the usual age ranges between 2-6 months, ​with the average being around 4 months. As long as your baby is alert, smiling, and not yet sitting, then it's up to you when you'd like the photos taken. Sitter session: the usual age ranges between 6-12 months, ​with the average being around 7 months. As long as your baby can sit unaided and is under one years old, then it's up to you when you'd like the photos taken. If you're having a cake smash for the first birthday, I'd recommend coming a few months before to capture each milestone at separate stages.




WILL YOU BE HANDLING MY BABY?


Yes. I would not be handling your baby as much as a newborn photoshoot, but I will still be holding them, playing with them, moving them into positions, and changing them into outfits. So it is vital you have trust in me as your photographer. If you feel at all uncomfortable with the thought of me handling your baby then a baby photoshoot isn't for you. You will always be present during the shoot and baby is supervised at all times.




DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING


Other than bringing your usual bag of bits, l have everything l need. If you have your own prop ideas to make your photoshoot unique to you, feel free to bring anything along with you.




WHAT TIME IS BEST TO COME?


This totally depends on your child's routine and nap time, each baby is different and you as a parent will know when is their happiest time of the day. We can offer sessions to begin at either 10am or 2pm.




CAN I BRING MY OTHER CHILDREN?


I am more than happy for both parents and other children to come along, however, I do not allow more than two adults during this unless agreed prior to the shoot. I recommend older siblings joining us at the end for the family images, as from past experience they tend to distract baby away from the photoshoot, but you know your children best so it's totally your call.




WHAT HAPPENS IF MY BABY CRIES OR WON'T SMILE?


If your baby really doesn't like having their photo taken, then I wouldn't advise bringing them to the studio as this could upset them more. For this I'd suggest an outdoor shoot so it's more relaxed and unposed. However, if your little one usually loves the camera and is having a bad day, your shoot can be rescheduled to suit. But I will always try my best to get the shots on the day if time allows.. Plus I can be very silly with my weird and wonderful noises, singing and dancing to get the babies to smile!

BOOK  YOUR  BABY  PHOTOSHOOT  TODAY

 

Milestone shoots are generally booked around 12 weeks in advance. So please reserve your slot as soon as you possibly can to avoid disappointment, especially if you want to guarantee a specific date around a certain milestone for your baby!

 

I will always try my best to accommodate last minute bookings which are sometimes doable if babies don't arrive on time for their newborn photoshoots, as it'll allow a free date in the diary, but please be aware I am not always able to do so, do not rely on this option! 

 

If you want a milestone photoshoot in the next few weeks, please contact us first to check upcoming availability. 

We had a great photoshoot with our baby girl. Jade was fantastic, she got some wonderful sets together based on the colour schemes we had chosen in advance. We were really impressed with all of the photos when we went for a viewing. Again, Jade was fantastic, really patient with us whilst we chose the package that was right for us. Jade advised us on which photos could work best in the wall art we had chosen. A great service all round.
