For babies 3-12 months old
Studio based in Pt Chevalier, Auckland
Your baby is growing – fast! Long feeds and endless sleep are soon replaced by gummy smiles, interactions, and milestones. Sitting up, crawling, and toddling around on their own become the new normal – everything is happening so quickly.
Baby photography is the perfect compliment to newborn photography as comparing the sessions show how quickly your baby changes. These sessions are also ideal for those who missed out on a newborn session but still want to capture all the cute little details.
When is the best time to bring baby in for baby photos? The answer simply depends on what you wish to achieve in your session. Some people opt to come in for mini sessions throughout the year as baby grows, while others prefer one classic photography session when baby is sitting confidently alone (typically 7+ months).
Both classic and mini sessions take place in our in Pt Chevalier photography studio, but classic sessions can also take place in the comfort of your own home for an additional travel fee.
Note that these sessions are different to newborn photography (under 6 weeks) – you can find out more about these sessions here.
This is the typical age that parents will opt for classic baby milestone sessions. Once baby is sitting up alone and/or crawling, we are much more flexible to play with a bunch more poses, allowing him or her to explore and play confidently. We can still incorporate props, include siblings and parents, and special toys.
While studio sessions are perfect for this age, we can also take these photos outside if you want to – see more details here.
Perfectly stylised with your taste in mind, this baby session is the full photography experience capturing milestones as your little one grows.

Auckland Baby Photographer FAQs
When should I book?
The best time to book a baby session with our Auckland baby photographer is a couple of months before you’re looking to have your session. This ensures that we can fit you in. However, if you’ve decided you’re after something now, please do get in touch – we will definitely still try to fit you in where we can.
How long do sessions take?
Baby photography usually takes somewhere between half an hour to an hour as we stop and start throughout the session to keep your baby safe, happy, and fed.
What can I expect during the session?
With over eight years of baby photography experience, here at Siobhan Kelly Photography we know what we doing and have a tried and tested workflow. If siblings are involved, we will usually take photos with them first while they are still interested in what is going on. Family photos will follow this, and then once we have set any siblings up with entertainment, we will continue with photos of your baby alone. Don’t worry at all if you’re feeling nervous – we have plenty of tricks to tame babies and toddlers, and to make you (naturally) smile!
When you book in with us, we will also send you a session guide, so you know exactly what to wear, what to bring, and what to expect.
I saw this photo with a prop I love…
Bowls, baskets, headbands, hats… if they belongs to the studio (most things do, unless they were brought in specifically by clients) – you’re welcome to use them in your session too! Feel free to ask ahead of time and we can make sure to incorporate it in your baby photography session. Having said that, if you have anything special you’d like to include, feel free to bring it along too.
You do other types of photography too, right?
