The Best Age - Children Photography

Newborn..

Newborn photography is very popular, especially with first time parents. It's very understandable, newborns are adorable, so small and squidgy! Newborns are best photographed between 1-14 days old, during this time period they're a lot more sleepy and posable.

Sitter session..

These sessions, as it states, are for babies that have just started to be able to sit by themselves, up to the 'toddling off' age! Usually 7 months - 14 months depending on their development. These sessions are wonderful, you can capture so much of personality as this age but it's usually one that parents don't tend to think about because they're not 'new' but they not quite 1 year old yet. This is the age I love to photograph the most!

Older kids / Siblings / The rest of the world

It's almost as though people think you can't have a photo-shoot unless it's a newborn baby or a special occasion. (Psst, you'll never print those photographs you take on your mobile phone..)

They don't have to be posed and in your living room, I've done photoshoots in parks in Leeds, Otley Chevin forest, parks in Huddersfield, Mirfield woodland, the beach, Yorkshire sculpture park, the list goes on!

I hope the following photographs encourage more and more people to take part in sessions, photo-shoots are for children and adults of all ages! What are you waiting for, these memories are priceless!
