Photo tips

Here are some photography guidelines, hints and tips to help your baby's photo look its best.

  1. Make sure the photograph is only of your baby/babies.
  2. Photos need to be recent, no older than 1 month.
  3. Photos can either be taken inside or outside, as long as it's in natural daylight.
  4. If it's too dark, your photo will be blurry.
  5. No naked photos - baby's chest and nappy areas must be covered.
  6. Frame your photo correctly. Don't cut off the baby's/babies' head, toes or arms.
