BABY PORTRAITS – BABY PHOTOGRAPHER CAMDEN
I have recently been able to start offering Baby Portraits after a small studio renovation. As a Baby Photographer Camden, I am able to document another great age in the first year of life.
I often see newborns between days 6-10, then I may not see them again for 18-24 months when they either have updated family portraits or they bring in their newest addition to their family.
The first 12-18 months hold absolutely incredible changes in a baby, they reach many milestones but also change so much physically. I can often see a bub I photographed as a newborn at around 9-12 months and I would swear the parents are playing a trick on me and have swapped their baby 🙂
Being a Baby Photographer Camden I can get Bub’s back into my studio and document the gorgeous things they do briefly at this time in their lives… Attempting to crawl, drooling, being deliriously happy, loving Mum and Dad with wide mouthed, slobbering kisses, sucking on their toes, the list can go on forever.
I guess my point it, lots of people love the newborn stage as they are curled, sleepy and will never be that tiny again, I love the newborn stage too!
But around 9 months we get treated with another round of magic that also lasts briefly and is just as amazing.
Coming up to a child’s first birthday we often throw big parties and buy gifts, relatives and friends will brings gifts too, but what Bub will most likely do is enjoy the wrapping paper more than anything and fall asleep before the candle is on the cake.
I gave both of my children the gift of portraits for their first birthday, combined with a collectible musical carousel with their names engraved on a plaque. They received many gifts which are well and truly gone now, but their carousels and portraits remain. They have a visual reminder of a time in their lives that will not remember, they can look back and relive their first year time and time again.
In short, really, our babies first birthdays are more us than it is for them.
While I think the trending cake smash concept is fun and cute, going forward, long term, what your child will want is a photograph of themselves being loved by you. Their parents, their world, their ‘home’.
As a professional Baby Photographer Camden I am commissioned to record the connections and the finer details of who these precious little ones are going through a major milestone stage in their lives.
Launching Baby Portraits, I worked with a few Bub’s to get a good idea of how they roll at this age. 30 to 40 minutes was all I needed which included time for them to get to be comfortable around me and a few wardrobe changes. 30 to 40 minutes is all they were able to give me also before they let me know my time was up 🙂
Due to the fact that the session time is so short I am able to offer a great package which covers prints and also digital files.
My Baby Portraits Package includes your session, five 5×7 inch unframed prints and five digital files on a gorgeous USB in a small, handmade timber box, all for just $500 for new clients, or $450 for returning clients (I have photographed their tiny, spectacular human before).
What an incredible first birthday present!
Firstly, Bub is documented, you will have five 5×7 inch prints to sprinkle around your home, and also five digital files to give to family and friends. I can’t think of anything better! as a gift for a first birthday!
The photograph above was taken in my natural light studio just outside Camden. Feel free to bring a few outfits or try stores such as Jamie Kay https://jamiekay.com/ for simple outfits that will allow your Bubs beautiful face to take the spotlight.
