Older Baby Photography Sessions in Gloucester

Let me guess: your baby’s changed so much already!

Your baby isn’t the sleepy, curled up newborn they were just a few short weeks ago.

They’re starting to lift their head, excitedly stare into your eyes – and maybe they’re even dishing out some gorgeous little smiles!

Despite the rate of knots at which they’re growing, your baby is still the smallest they’ll ever be again.

It’s not too late to capture this precious time.

Older baby photoshoots are perfect for babies aged 4+ weeks old and who aren’t yet sitting up independently. (If your baby is already sitting up, take a look at our sitter photoshoots.)

Baby Photographer Gloucester - Moments by Katie Mitchell Photography

Katie was incredibly patient with a grumpy baby and yet managed to produce some absolutely amazing photographs which are now proudly displayed on our walls.

We couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

Older Baby Photoshoot FAQs

If you would like to understand more about the process, see my frequently asked questions about older baby photoshoots below.

Before your photoshoot

Can I pay for my session in instalments?

Yes! You are more than welcome to pay for your preferred photography package in monthly instalments in the run up to your session. Please let me know if you’d like to take advantage of this when booking your session.


I have to be really careful not to pass on any nasty germs to the small babies that enter my studio so, please get in touch to reschedule. You won’t be charged and it’s much better to be safe rather than sorry.

Do I have to buy from one of your packages?

No, you are welcome to make a bespoke order. There is, however, a minimum spend equal to the relevant silver package.

On the day

Where is your studio?

My studio is located at my home in Longlevens, moments off the A40 and M5 motorway, making it ideally situated for clients in Gloucester, Cheltenham and further afield.

Can I have my hair and make-up done?

Yes absolutely! I work with a fabulous hair and make-up artist who specialises in beautiful, natural make-up. Simply let me know you’d like to book when you get in touch.

What age ranges are these photoshoots for?

Typically these packages will be for about the age of 4-6 weeks until your baby is able to sit up unsupported. If you want to have a chat about what would be best for your baby, please feel free to get in touch.

After your photoshoot

When will my photographs be ready?

After your photoshoot, your photographs will be edited to my highest standards before being presented to you. This process typically takes two weeks, however may take a little longer during busy periods. As soon as your photographs are ready, you’ll be invited back for your personal Reveal and Order session, where you’ll be able to view your photographs and choose the packages and products that you would like to purchase.

What happens after my photoshoot?

As your photoshoot draws to a close, we’ll arrange a convenient date and time for you to return to the studio for your Reveal and Order session. I don’t like to keep clients waiting too long, so I normally aim to get you back within a couple of weeks of your photo session.

If you can’t wait that long, you’ll be offered the opportunity of a sneak peek of one of your photographs on Facebook the evening of your photoshoot. Please note that I need your consent to use your images in this manner, so if you have not already opted into this within your contract, you may be asked to complete a model release form.

At your Reveal and Order appointment, you’ll be shown a beautiful slideshow of all of your photographs. You’ll be reminded of the packages available and shown the art of the possible when it comes to wall art. And then it’s up to you to choose how you’d like to proceed. There’s never any pressure and, of course, if you don’t fall in love with your photographs, I will happily refund your session fee. Thankfully I can report that 100% of my clients have loved their photographs!

Orders are to be made at the Reveal and Order session so please make sure all decision makers can attend. I accept cash or debit card and can also offer payment plans if necessary.

Do I have to decide on my final order at the Reveal appointment?

Ideally, yes. The purpose of the Reveal session is for you to sit back and enjoy your photographs and decide which collection is right for you. Additional Reveal appointments may be requested, however a booking fee will apply.

What is the charity donation?
I am passionate about helping families across Gloucestershire to celebrate family life but I know that not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to afford a luxury such as professional photography to help them do this. From an early stage in my business, I decided that I would do my bit to support those who can’t, so I chose to donate a portion of all standard packages sold to three charities in Gloucestershire that resonated with my values, Gloucestershire Bundles, The Family Haven and Footsteps Counselling and Care.
Will you use my images?
I’d love to! But I will never show your photographs to anyone without your consent. When you sign your portrait photography contract, you’ll be asked permission to use photographs from your session for marketing purposes. I know that some people feel uneasy about this until they’ve seen their images and that’s fine. You’re welcome to make up your mind at your view and order session and, if you’re happy for me to share your beautiful images with the world, I’ll simply fill ask you to fill in a model release consent form. And of course, if you’d prefer they stayed private, then that’s absolutely fine as well.

I wrote a blog post which goes into a little more detail about this here.
