Carlisle Older Baby Photography

Older Baby Photography in Carlisle

Older baby photo sessions take place in my studio in Denton Holme, Carlisle.

Sometimes parents miss out on newborn photo sessions, perhaps because they didn’t realise you need to book in advance, or because mum or baby wasn’t too well after the birth.  That’s when older baby photo sessions come in!

Older baby photo sessions are about capturing milestones, they are often called Little Sitter Photo Sessions as they are often at 6 months+ when you baby is at the point of sitting up.  This is an amazing milestone in the development of your child and is why many parents ask us to capture this special time.  You don’t have to wait until this time though as I will take photos of your baby at any age.

 I really love to include other members in the family in these sessions, so do let me know if babies mum and dad, or siblings are to be in the photos.  It’s all the same price!

These sessions last up to 45 minutes and comes with a 7″ x 5″ photograph, with the option to purchase packages, or individual photos afterwards.

Why Choose Keltic Rose Photography for Older Baby Portraits?

I could give a number of reasons, but for many families, it comes down to three things.

1. Photos Sessions with Keltic Rose Photography are great fun

2. Quality, there are many photographers out there, and I believe that I take good quality photographs which capture beautiful moments in time.

3. Cost, I may not be the cheapest photographer in the area but I believe I give really good value for money.

Older baby photo shoots are only £50 and this includes the photo session (either in the studio or outdoors), a complimentary mounted 7″ x 5″ photograph of your choice.



Thank you Allan for some great photos of our family. We have used Keltic Rose photography 3 times and would highly recommend them. Allan is professional and managed to keep the attention of our two young children to create some great photos.


How it works

1. Agree and arrange a date

At this time you need to pay the deposit fee which secures your date. This is £50 and I send an invoice for you to pay via credit card, bank transfer, or we can arrange for you to come to the studio with cash.

2. On the day

On the date agreed you and the family (friendly dogs as well) come along to the studio or to an outdoor venue that we have agreed.

3. During the session

Family portrait sessions usually last about 45 minutes but bank on being in the studio for a little over an hour. We have some fun and I take photographs of all of the family, then of groups then of individuals and any other ideas you might have.

During the session if in the studio you have full use of the studio, there is a changing room, props, and a number of backgrounds – if interested do ask about these when you arrange your session, the default is a studio white background.

4. At the end of the session

At the end of the photo session I will take the remainder of the session fee. This can again be paid by card, bank transfer, or cash.

5. Viewing your images

Up to 2 weeks later I put your photos in a password-protected area, give you the password and you can choose your complimentary 7″ x 5″ photo. 

6. After ordering images

Once you have ordered your photographs sit back and a couple of weeks later I will in most cases hand deliver your pictures. If you need a photo urgently let me know and we will see what can be done.
