Hi, today I will talk about bump to baby photoshoots. What they are and at what stages you usually would do them. I have photographed babies in Edinburgh for the past 10 years and love seeing families coming back to document milestone sessions.
It is a beautiful way to document the first year. You can decorate babies nursery with photos and at the end of the year you can create beautiful heirloom album to preserve these memories and pass them down generations.
It is a combination of sessions throughout the first year of babies life. Some photographers extend this to up to the first two years, but I think one of the most important milestones do happen within that first year.
It would be up to you to decide when would you like your baby year story to start. Most of the parents start it at the pregnancy stage. Those who are shyer would start it at the newborn stage.
How it works.
Bump to Baby plan consists of 3-4 photo sessions. Pregnancy photo shoot, newborn, 6month sitter session and 1st birthday celebration either with the cake or simple family session.
Once you book the baby year plan, we just wait for each stage to happen and book a session a little in advance. Around 4 weeks or so.
I offer two types of packages. I will briefly explain each here. For more details please contact the studio.
