Our Unique Style
Our baby photography sessions usually take place in our south Belfast studio and are designed around your child and are a unique and personal experience. Our sessions are a relaxed and enjoyable experience as we capture a variety of posed and candid expressions of your little one(s). Babies are encouraged to play, crawl, jump, run and most importantly, have fun! With our expertise in anticipating that perfect moment, we can create baby portraits that are beautiful, touching, and emotional!
When to book?
To be honest, it’s never too early to book! During their first year, your baby will quickly go through some significant milestones, and there are many ideal times that you should look to record their development.
• 3 Months: Smile in response to your smile, recognise your face, laugh out loud
• 6 Months: Sitting, reaching, responds to sounds, blows bubbles, mouths objects
• 9 Months: Cruising, crawling, standing (holding on), waves, loves being tickled
• 12 Months: Bottom shuffling, taking first steps, exploring their world.
We only book a limited number of Baby Sessions each week as we like to spend a bit of time with our clients and not make you feel rushed. So it is advisable to check our availability by calling 02890 996 976.
In the studio, at home or location?
We offer baby photography in our Belast studio, or in the comfort of your home. Working in our studio allows us to offer a controlled environment, with our unique baby sensitive lighting and controlled room temperature that are so crucial to the success of a Baby Photography session. Our studio sessions focus on posed baby portraits, although we’re always happy to capture some photographs with mum and dad if they wish to join in!
We also offer an “at home” session for clients want to incorporate the nursery or other meaningful settings within their home. We’ll provide the portable lighting equipment, blankets, and accessories and create a studio set up in your home for those “classic” posed baby portraits.
Displaying your Artwork
We believe in having beautiful artwork for your home in addition to digital files for archiving. This artwork that you hang on the wall in your home, and you will pass by it every day on your way to work or your way to bed, and it gives you a lift, recreating the emotion of a particular time in your families life. You might move house; you might redecorate the room, but we guarantee you will continue to get joy from this art for the rest of your life. It will become more than a photograph; it will be an heirloom that will become part of your family’s story for your generation and much more to come.
Each product we offer is chosen for its craftsmanship, and the museum-quality ensures that your images will be enjoyed for many generations! We invite you to our Belfast studio for a personal design session, and we would encourage you to think about space in your home where you would like to see your baby portraits and photograph it with your phone. During your viewing session, we will able to show you how different wall art displays will look in your home! We will discuss with you the many options for displaying your photographs in imaginative and beautiful ways. Contemporary or classic we will work with you to ensure your portraits fit your home perfectly.
