Hints & Tips

Pregnancy shoots

When should I book my pregnancy photo shoot?


The perfect time for your bump session is 36 weeks.

What should I wear?


Simple, classic and close-fitting clothes look wonderful in photographs and show off your bump to its best advantage. For really striking images, black and white outfits work perfectly. If you need some inspiration, take a look at our Maternity & Newborn Gallery.

You and your newborn

When should I book my newborn baby shoot?


Book your photographic session up to eight weeks after your baby is born. Some parents like portraits that show just how tiny their child is – held in their father’s hands for example. The best time for these kind of photographic sessions is 7-14 days.

What should I wear?


Choose clothes in keeping with the style of portrait you want to create – smart casuals suit fun relaxed images, whilst more formal or very simple outfits are better suited to more stylised photographs.

If you’re coming with a partner, make sure the two of you are similarly dressed, and stick to a colour theme. White backgrounds are very fashionable at the moment, so very light or very dark colours tend to look more effective.

Think about where your portrait will go


We will give you stunning images, presented in a range of classic and contemporary styles. You just need to decide where at home (or at work!) you want to show them off. How much room have you got? What is the decor like? We don’t know your home – you do – so help us create the portraits that will complement their surroundings, whether that means a canvas, an album or a set of prints.
