Taking photos of babies presents some unique challenges. Here in our Perth studio, we understand the trick to getting great professional baby photos is in the preparation.
Babies can’t help it if they’re hungry, tired, cold, hot or sleepy, so it’s best to plan to photograph them at a time when they are most likely to be happy. This varies from baby to baby depending on their age and sleep cycle.
Parents generally know best, so we will work with you to plan a time that is best for baby.
As the weather and the light in Perth are highly variable, baby photos are usually best taken in our air conditioned studio. We can adjust the temperature up or down to make baby comfortable, and control all of the lighting and background elements.
Many of the best baby photos happen when baby is being supported or held by a parent, so it is important that you come prepared to be photographed – (if only as a prop!) as well.
If baby gets grumpy during the shoot it is usually best to have a short break. Often a feed or nappy change is all that is needed. Sometimes baby falls asleep – not to worry! Some of our best photos are of sleeping babies.
