Baby Portraits


We love babies!

The moment your baby is born, your life will change.  They grow up shockingly fast so every proud parent needs the early days / weeks / years captured. You really will treasure these images for years to come.

We can do these photo sessions at any stage, be it gentle newborn photos within their first few days to a super fun Cake Smash on your 1 years old birthday!  We offer several 1st year packages.

We feel simple is best when photographing your child since your child should be the main focus of your image.  We hope to capture some happy moments, but babies are wonderful at showing a range of emotion which all add to beautiful, unique images.  We love to show their personalities in our images. We also love for your images to be unique to you so you are very welcome to bring along a special toy, family heirloom or anything that is precious to your child / family to make their portrait highly personalised.

We have a selection of packages including a 1st Year package which includes 3 sessions (newborn, at 6 months (once sitting) and at 1 year), please contact us if you would like to know more.

Your shoot

How long your session take depends on your child, generally newborn sessions take up to 3 hours and older baby sessions take around 1 hour.  The session is a relaxed affair where you can of course stop to feed your baby or give a nappy change.  We have lots of fun during the shoot where if they are old enough, we simply try to get some giggles and let your child enjoy themselves so its a lovely experience for them or if they are newborn we keep things very relaxed and quiet so as to let them drift off. After the shoot we will fully edit a selection of the best images for you to view.  Then we invite you back to the studio for your viewing session which is the time you can also order from our collection of products.  We have carefully chosen products which we feel shows your images at their very best and we can design mock-up frames etc. at your viewing session.  

We pride ourselves on our non-pushy sales attitude.  Of course we would like you to love the images so much that you would like them beautifully framed on your wall, but it is completely your choice and you are under no obligation.  We are just there to suggest and advise what might work best.  You are also welcome to contact us to view our price list prior to booking a session as we are completely upfront and transparent about our prices.  Please contact us for one.

Booking your session

To book your baby photo session please call us on 07942 014333 or drop us an email at holly@barclaystudios.com.  If booking a newborn session, please contact us as soon as possible with your due date – so we know roughly when you will be calling to book an exact date!  Please then contact us asap after birth, we ideally want to have the session before the baby is 10 days old.  You cannot book too far in advance and we would strongly suggest you do as our diary fills up fast!

Safety

Whilst all sessions are kept fun and relaxed, safety is always paramount.  I support and have attended training in the art of safe posing.  I am an active member of The SWPP (Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers) and BANPAS (Baby and Newborn Photography Association).
