Ahhh… there is nothing more cherished than a beautiful portrait of an adorable baby! While babies 6-8 months of age are my favorite subjects to photograph (they are typically happy and smiling but still relatively immobile!) I photograph infants of all ages.
I wrote an article with information about KEY AGES TO CAPTURE and highly recommend three stages: newborn (under 6 weeks), sitting (6-8 months) and standing (12 months).
For babies who are not sitting, a studio session is recommended. For babies who are sitting (6 months or older), an outdoor session may be an option, but I do suggest “testing” your baby in the grass as many infants do not care for the prickly sensation of a lawn. Weather is also a factor to consider as extremely hot or relatively cold temperatures may also be a distraction.
My specialty is beautiful studio portraits and I have an extensive variety of props and portrait accessories to choose from to make each portrait session special and unique.
Below is a sampling of my portfolio featuring babies who are 4+ months of age.
