Nothing can show the tenderness and love you have for your baby as much as a portrait of yourself with your child. From around 3 months old your baby is awake longer and certainly more aware, they just want to be picked up and cuddled.

Mums: Wear make-up if you choose, plain clothing that co-ordinates with a simple outfit of your babies, or have bare shoulders and your baby naked.

Happy babies are neither tired nor hungry so make sure they have a nap and are well fed before the photo-shoot.
