Mums, it's so important to exist in photographs for your children. The first six months of their little lives fly by amidst a cloudy brain of sleepless nights, teething and feeding frenzies, and before you know it they're on the move, walking and leaving for University! Understandably, new mums feel less than glamorous during this special time, especially if you're outnumbered in the parent:kid department or had a difficult birth, so being photographed with your new baby even with a smartphone is probably the last thing you feel like doing.
There are a million reasons you can tell yourself why now is not the right time to have your professional portrait taken or why you probably prefer to avoid the camera completely. Perhaps you want to shed your excess baby weight or the luggage residing under your eyes, but honestly NOW is the RIGHT time as you'll never get NOW back and it's a different ball game once they're mobile!
With all these excuses in mind, I've designed this special package especially for you and your mummy buddies. You deserve to be pampered and to have gorgeous portraits to mark this incredible time in your life, both for you and your child to treasure in the future. Ask yourself, if the worst was to happen to you – what images would you be leaving your children to cling on to?
The session is designed for groups of friends (3-7), so you can help look after each others' infants while mum is having her professional hair and make-up done by make-up artist Samantha Kibbler, a specialist in airbrushing. Coffee and cake will be flowing, and lunch if you opt for a full-day shoot, and you'll have a private comfortable room for babies to play and for mums to breastfeed at the studio, Saracens House in Milton Keynes. There's also kitchen facilities for warming and storing bottles. (If you're not local to Milton Keynes, we also have other studios where the session can take place across the country, for instance Studio6, in Letchworth).
While every mum gets their choice of 12x8 print and digital file included in the session, with the chance to purchase more or upgrade to premium-quality products. The group's organiser, however, gets their image as an 11 x14" framed print (worth £129)!
You can have a full day (ideal for up to seven mums and babies) or half a day's (ideal for 3 mums and babies). Individual or smaller groups can also be accommodated so please contact us to discuss what it is that you'd like in more detail. The price depends on your group booking, but starts from £129.
