What is the best age to have your baby photographed is a question we get a lot of parents asking us. We decided it would be a good idea to put together an infographic to help answer these questions.
We have a variety of different baby photography sessions so once you have worked out what type of photography session is right for your baby have a look at some of our deals.
Find the time to have your baby photographed
From the initial pregnancy session, with you in beautiful bloom, to your precious newborn within their first two weeks – Bumps to Babies gives you a timeless record of the joy of your new baby’s arrival.
After your sessions, you receive two premium quality studio beautifully hand mounted prints.
Your maternity photo session in our Wimbledon studio will be ideally booked between 32 and 36 weeks.

Ideally your newborn baby photography session is best taken within the first two weeks when baby is nice and sleepy.
This photo session can last around a couple of hours so there’s plenty of time for feeds and changes when needed.

These are what we like to think of as our ‘proper’ baby photo-shoots and we make them as simple as possible.
Bring a couple of changes of clothes but try and keep colours neutral.
Photographed when your baby is between six and eight months old, ideally when baby can sit on their own comfortably.
Now your baby is sitting up comfortably it can be fun to try a few different outfits.
Football kits, Christening dresses as well as seasonal themed outfits are all encouraged!
Photographed around the first birthday, ideally when baby can stand / coast.
This would be the ideal time to have pictures with siblings.
We begin your photo session with a mini portrait shoot before we get all messy! This is a great chance to get some lovely milestone portraits of your baby.
Then we bring on the cake and it’s time for your baby to explore all the textures and tastes that sit before them.
After the cake smash photos we’ll clean up with some bubble bath photos to finish off.
Each cake smash session lasts up to an hour. You’ll be invited back to the studio for your personal viewing and ordering session about a week after your photoshoot.
Included in this offer is 16×12 Personalised framed montage print worth £149 plus you’ll have the option to order more pictures if you wish.
Whilst we do encourage you to have some family pictures in any of our portrait sessions we do recommend that if you are looking for a family portrait then a dedicated session is usually best.
This type of photoshoot is ideal if you have other children or if you’d like to bring grandparents along for some photos.
Each family studio portrait session includes a beautifully mounted print.
