Babies only or babies with other family members ?  

I have photographed hundreds of babies over the years and it is obviously great for parents to have these reminders of their baby's early years , but looking back I have noticed that very few parents , grand parents or great grand parents ever ask to be involved in the photo sessions . These images , if taken , form part of your new baby's family history and will become family heirlooms , so I am going to make a conscious effort to do more of these and the Classical Portrait sessions are an ideal style to capture these memories . I know it's not everyone that enjoys being photographed , I know I don't and that's why I stay behind the camera , but I feel that these family memories are very important and will become treasured memories for your future generations , so if you would like to be photographed with your baby , also grandparents and great grandparents , please mention this when you contact me and I will arrange a special session for you all . 100% guaranteed . I am confident that you will love the images I create for you , if not , I will refund your session fee . Although I have been taking photographs for many years , starting out with film and printing my own black and white work , I am always looking to learn and have recently completed an Advanced Photoshop course , this way I am always improving and my clients get even better images . Please contact me to find out what we can do for you .

Baby Portrait Photography Advice

I always recommend waiting until your baby is a minimum of 16 weeks old before having them photographed , the reason is that they really have to be strong enough to lift their head up in order to get really nice images . When their neck muscles develop and they can lie on their stomach and easily lift their head up , without any sign of struggling , then this is the ideal stage to book them in . I have been photographing babies since 2006 and have photographed hundreds of them , so this advice comes with a lot of experience behind it . I know a lot of places will take babies in earlier than this age , but I personally think these images are not the best , as the babies need to be propped up , or end up with their head sinking into a cushion , not the best way to show off your lovely baby . 

Your Baby Photography Session

There is no time limit on any of my sessions , I always leave plenty of time between appointments and this means that there is never any rush . This gives time to let the baby settle in and get used to being in the studio before I start . I suggest you bring along a  change of outfit , nothing specific , just one of your favourites , I can also do a "nappy shot" , which is always popular . I will , where possible , do a split session with two different looks , a white background "high key" session and a more traditional "low key " session incorporating a hand painted canvas backdrop , both of these looks will be included in the one booked session , so you get two completely different looks for your baby's images . 

Viewing your images

A few days after the session , you will be invited along to the studio to view a slideshow of your images , these will be shown on a large screen via a digital projector . I have software available to help make the ordering process easier for you and we are on hand to give advice on sizes and styles to suit your requirements

NHS Discount Card

10% Discount for all NHS staff .

100% guaranteed . I am  confident that you will love the images I create for you and your baby , if not I will refund your session fee .

"Absolutely delighted with the photos Ian did of my little girl, she is only 1 and he really took his time to make her feel comfortable and happy before getting  started. He then took his time with taking the photos, engaging her and playing so we got a whole variety of beautiful pictures. The photos are gorgeous - we will definitely be back! "

Sarah Grace Cairns


  " I have used Ian's photography services a couple of times now and have had nothing but excellent results on every occasion . He put my kids at ease , which in turn , I'm sure makes his job easier too. I would recommend Ian to anyone , he is friendly , professional and very good at his job . I am over the moon with the pictures of my kids , the poses are very natural and capture their very individual personalities , which I thought was amazing . The whole experience was stress free for me and the kids and a first class service with excellent results , highly recommended ."
