Book a mum and baby photoshoot: You owe it to yourself and your children

Why not make it a priority to organise a mum and baby photoshoot?

After all, your children are your biggest fans. They adore you, exactly as you are. To them, you are the most perfect and beautiful mum in the world (even though you may not always feel like it!).

But, while you are at the very heart of the family, you have very few family photographs of you and the children together, right?

You’re there for your children in both the good times and the bad. You’re there during all those gloriously chaotic everyday moments that family life is made of. But you’re also the one behind the camera most of the time (hint hint, dads!).

Exist in photographs with the ones you love the most

My popular ‘Mummy and Me’ photo sessions are a lovely way to capture and celebrate the unique and special bond that you have with your children.

Rather than being an indulgence, a mother and baby photoshoot (or mother and child photoshoot) is something that I believe you should do regularly. After all, you’ll gain so much pleasure from the photographs, it’ll be well worth the investment.

And, your child will be so grateful for the photos in the future. No doubt they’ll laugh looking back at their young face! And they’ll love looking at you and them together, remembering a time that has passed.

I truly believe that you owe it yourself and your child to document these important family years in beautiful photographs.

Mum and baby photoshoots available all year round

I first launched these Mummy and Me sessions in 2017 and they have been really popular ever since.

It’s been a real pleasure to photograph so many lovely mummies with their sons and daughters, in ages ranging from month-old babies through to teenagers.

Before I sat down to write this, I actually looked back over the pictures I have taken for my Mummy and Me clients over the past two years. It was so nice revisiting the mummy and baby and mummy and child portraits I’ve taken!

The kind words my clients have shared about their experience of their Mummy and Me photoshoots also reminded me of how special it is for the families to have these portraits.

Mummy and Me photoshoot experience

Having professional quality photographs that capture the important connection between mum and child really is so wonderful, as my clients have said themselves:

Emma Jane gave me a 5-star review:

“Sandra is welcoming and friendly and instantly put my children and myself at ease. We took up the offer of a mini, mummy and me photo shoot and we love the pictures. Sandra really captured our relaxed natures and love for each other. I would highly recommend Sandra and would not hesitate to use her services again.

Corinne also gave me a 5-star review and said,

We are delighted with our photos. My extremely wriggly 3-year-old was only half cooperating, but Sandra was calm and patient and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend her.”

A recent Mummy and Me Session

My most recent Mummy and Me session was with the lovely Amy who had been treated to the session by her husband for her birthday. She came along to my photography studio earlier this month for some mum and baby portraits.

Here are just some of the almost-thirty pictures that I took for Amy with her adorable daughter Aurora. Gorgeous, aren’t they?

And I was delighted that Amy gushed about the session and the photos afterwards! Here’s what she said on her Instagram account @raising_aurora:

We absolutely loved it. I may not have lost my baby (or Christmas) weight, or had my hair and makeup perfectly done but none of this mattered when I was with my baby ????. Sandra had a lovely little studio and had planned put all the best poses so we could get lots of shots quickly before Aurora got tired. She made us feel very comfortable offering lots of breaks for feeds and a little rest too!”

Why wait to book your Mummy and Me session?

I hope that these pictures and testimonials make you realise that a mum and daughter or mother and son photoshoot is an investment well worth making?

They are available all year round. Perhaps you could ask your partner or family to treat you – why not add it to your birthday wish list? Or treat yourself! You deserve it! Even when there is no occasion!

The session costs just £79, which includes a 2-hour photoshoot at my south-east London photography studio. They’ll be plenty of time for outfit changes and for trying out lots of different poses. Photo packages are available from £249 which includes a minimum of 20 images.

By opting for the full experience, you’ll enjoy a relaxed session and receive a lovely variety of images to choose from and to print, frame or mount onto your walls or place in a keepsake album.


Or, another option, with Mother’s Day coming up, is to take advantage of a very special offer that’s currently up for grabs.

You can book one of my limited-availability mini sessions (20 minutes) on Saturday 216th March 2019.

On this one day only, I am offering Mummy and Me for the incredible-value price of just £99 which includes five digital images, and the option to upgrade to purchase prints and wall art for your home.

A professional photoshoot is an ideal Mother’s Day gift after all!

Take a moment with mum

Whether you opt for the full photoshoot or the mini session, whether you have one child or several, babies or teens, I’ll record your special moments of mother and daughter/son time. And I guarantee you that the whole thing will be a relaxed and fun experience for you all.

I have lots of mum and baby photo ideas and I’ll take several photographs of you and your baby or child together.

If you have more than one child, I’ll photograph you with each child individually as well as in a group. Plus, I’ll also take a photo of just you – you’ve probably not got a professional photo of yourself after all!

As Cecilia discovered, after her mummy and baby photo session last year, I’m very patient and can get wonderful pictures, even if your little one may not feel like having their photo taken!

I don’t know how Sandra did it?? My little one really give her a hard time – he was simply not in the mood for photos – but the result was great and I was so thankful for her patience.”

The whole point is that you get to enjoy quality time together – just you and your child (or children) – and come away with beautiful, relaxed family portraits that you’ll treasure for years to come.

A Mum and baby photoshoot is a great gift idea

We all deserve something special from time to time, so why not treat yourself to a ‘Moment with Mum’ session? Or buy one for someone else?

I have gift vouchers available if you’d like to buy a session or contribute to the cost of a session for a friend or family member.

Anne-Marie recently said of her session:

“I loved our Mummy and Me session with Sandra. Sandra worked smoothly and with warmth and fun. I felt really special and so did my daughter. I would highly recommend it!”
