Mummy and Me Photography Mini Sessions in Aylesbury – Poppy Carter Portraits

Mummy and Me Mini Sessions are the most important of the year. I am a huge advocate for encouraging Mum’s to find their confidence and step in front of the camera with their babies. You are their safe space, their home and their childhood wrapped up in one perfectly imperfect person – but to them you are truly perfect.

When they look back at their childhood memories it’s so important for you to be there in photographs. As much as you will treasure these images now, I promise these images become more valuable as the years pass until they are your children’s prized possessions.

I wanted to answer the most asked questions for you but if it’s missed anything the comments section is always open!

What is a Mummy & Me Photoshoot?

A Mummy & Me Mini Session is exactly what it says on the tin – a 20 minute photoshoot for you (Mum) and your babies! Dad’s can sit this one out – it’s all about capturing cuddles, play and emotional moments with your bestie. Included is 1 retouched digital image – and you can upgrade to add additional images once you’ve seen your gallery. The session is taken in my truly beautiful Aylesbury Family Photography studio.

What should I wear for my Mummy & Me Photoshoot?

One of the most important aspects of the shoot is styling – think neutral tones, chunky knits and comfy jeans. You will be snuggling up and sitting on the floor for some of the session so you want to feel good doing that. If you aren’t sure what to wear you can bring a second option and I’ll help you pick.

How should I style Baby for my Mummy & Me Photoshoot?

For kids under 4 I have a studio wardrobe for you to choose from – with chunky knits, cute rompers and enough Zara to start my own store! You are also welcome to bring your own outfits. For older kids the same vibe still applies – neutral tones, chunky knits and comfy jeans. I want you to ‘match without matching’ – so the same colour palette but no-one wearing exactly the same outfit. Mix textures & prints and you are perfect. For more inspiration head to my Pinterest board.

When should I do my Mummy & Me Photoshoot?

I recommend any time from 4 months+. There is no ‘right’ time and lot’s of my clients come back for a Mummy & Me year after year. I even have grown up clients bringing their Mother’s in because you truly are never too old for a Mummy cuddle. (Yes I keep reminding my 8 year old of that!) All of the sessions are adjusted to suit your family perfectly – from playing with wooden toys for the under 2’s to making up stories together for the under 8’s all the way through to talking about favourite holiday memories for the grown up ‘kids’.

How do I look better for my photoshoot?

This is the most googled question and it makes me so sad that people worry about this. It’s my job to make you look your best. Focus on your children, engage with them and try to forget about the camera. The best pro-active things you can do are: Drink plenty of water and keep up your skin care routine. Make sure you have moisturised Baby’s skin too and all nails & faces are clean.
