Most of our customers have never done this before and will have a lot of questions before contacting us for the photoshoot.
Here are some common questions we get asked and feel free to message us with anything else want to know.


Most frequent questions and answers

The best time is before your little one is born! This gives you peace of mind knowing your babies photos will be captured usually 2 weeks after your due date. We book up weeks/months in advance for this. 

We say between 10-14 days after giving birth is the the best time to get their photos taken. At this age they are still sleepy, easier to put into different poses and positions. 

Absolutely! We encourage everyone to have their pictures taken with the baby, bring the family pet along too. 

If you are worried about how you look at the moment after giving birth, don’t worry we will make you look fabulous!

We don’t want you to regret not having pictures taken with you baby in years to come.

Great question! We ask everyone to bring along the following:

  • 1-2 outfit changes
  • Food/Milk to feed the baby during the session
  • Nappies incase they need changing
  • Any personal items you’ve been given or want to see in the photos

We should have everything else but feel free to ask us before the shoot!

All of the photos will be taken at our High Street Studio in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear. The studio has a private changing area, lots of amazing backgrounds, props and lighting to enhance your experience.
