Barnsley Children’s Photography

Capturing your family moments in the studio or the great outdoors

Barnsley Children’s Photography

Thank you for looking at our Children’s photography sessions, these sessions are aimed for 3 months upwards!

I am the only photographer at Blue Lights Photography, giving you a personal approach to the session, but it also means that if you become a repeat customer then your little one will get to know me, which will make your session easier.

I take time to get to know the children; I play with them and try to create a relaxed environment for them. Relaxed children are happy children – and we pull silly faces and sing songs not only to capture natural reactions –but their own personal character.

There are plenty of props within the studio – but I do advise to bring your own. Feel free to bring along your little one’s favourite toys, or a change of outfit. Something that you don’t mind being on your photographs.

For time, I generally schedule one hour, however as I work at your child’s pace sessions can sometimes be shorter, or run longer.

What is The Best Age for Childrens Photos?

A lot of time I am asked when is the best time to have your little one photographed. This is a guide for photographs within the first year.

I do photograph older children and families also if you have any questions please just ask.


Newborn babies are one of our specialities and are best photographed within 14 days of birth; however, they can be photographed up to 6 weeks old. Please see our specific newborn area for more information.

3-4 Months

Classed as around 14-16 weeks this age is perfect if you haven’t had newborn photographs. Your little ones are still baby looking, but can now respond to noises, are more smiley, are grabbing hands and feet and are holding their head up when laid on their tummy.

6 Months

Around this age, your little one will be able to sit unaided and showing signs of crawling. They will also be showing the cheeky character that they are now developing. 

12 Months

This age is perfect for our Cakey Baby photo sessions or some lovely portraits. Little ones are generally standing unaided, whereas some are now walking!

12 -24 Months+

Lots of fun with crawlers and toddlers in the studio, usually getting into mischief!!

24 Months+

Studio’s photography is great…but you can’t beat the great outdoors to really see your child learn, grow and explore the world around them.
