When your baby is too old for a newborn photoshoot.

I often get parents contact me, deep in regret that they have missed the newborn stage when it comes to photographing their baby. They are deep in regret and felt like they didn't expect it to go so quickly. The truth is, it is very much a - blink and you miss it - few weeks. Mostly, my baby photography clients in Cheshire are keen to get their newborn photographed. But sometimes it isn't until its too late that you realise that you wish you had done it. I am getting a lot more enquiries from my Cheshire clients for an older baby photoshoot. And do you know what, it really is still incredibly special.


Here's the thing. No matter what age they are - it will be the first set of professional photos that you have had done of your baby. Whilst it is lovely to get a collection of photographs whilst they are newborn, it isn't the end of the world if you miss it. Older baby photography in Cheshire is becoming increasingly popular and I am really enjoying photographing this stage.


I would never ever turn a baby away based on their age and a lot of photographers would generally encourage you to wait until baby is sitting in order to create for you a lot more variety. But I just think this stage is simply adorable. If you want photos now of your baby, you should get just that.


Searching for a photographer to take beautiful images of your older baby has huge benefits. This stage is gorgeous. Baby is usually awake throughout the whole photoshoot. This means lots of connection with the camera and eye contact with you. This of course means that you can encourage smiling and they look at you with their gorgeously inquisitive faces - which is so incredibly cute. Over these first few months you have gotten to know your baby well. You can read their needs, a routine is slowly being established and you are out of that foggy newborn daze that greets us all in the first few weeks. Getting out of the house doesn't seem quite so impossible. Baby won't have a big fear of strangers either and so will generally greet me with a gorgeous happy smile and will feel comfortable and happy on the photoshoot. My photography is clean and natural and so you will leave your older baby photoshoot in the knowledge that I have captured a stunning collection of photos that reflect the true personality of your baby. Cheshire is really beginning to love these older baby photoshoots!
