Baby Pumpkin Shoot

Wednesday 16th and Friday 18th October 2024

What is a Baby Pumpkin Shoot?

What on earth is a baby pumpkin shoot I hear you ask? Well, simply put – it is a photoshoot where I sit your baby in a hollowed-out pumpkin!

It started a few years ago when I made the catastrophic mistake of browsing on Pinterest for something random and it kind of snowballed! Turns out – you can buy a massive pumpkins that fit even the most ‘ample’ of babies rolls!

I like to think these shoots are to provide the parents / grandparents / carers some gorgeous and rather ‘alternative’ baby images for them to look upon fondly as the baby gets older. In reality though, parents are using them to create bribery albums for when they’re older!! Whatever the reason – they’re great fun and should be considered by all if they have access to a baby!

I don’t set age limits for the babies, but babies who can hold their head up is a necessity. Being able to sit by themselves isn’t imperative as the pumpkin acts as a bumbo so is very supportive of the baby!

How does a Baby Pumpkin shoot work?

Around beginning-mid October I will buy the biggest pumpkin possible, which I will then completely hollow out so no slimy flesh remains.  I set a date and location for 1 day where I will stay put and you come to me (that’s how I manage to keep the costs so low as I am not having to waste time travelling around).

We will meet at the location (which I will fully explain the week before the shoot). A 30 minute shoot is allocated per baby but there will be time at end so we don’t run into the next baby. Most parents like to dress their baby up in cute outfits and accessories to begin with and then strip them right at the last minute to get some cute naked shots! This is entirely optional though!

I have not yet had a baby who didn’t like sitting in my pumpkins – I think the babies like them as they act as a giant bumbo so are quite supportive and comfortable! Don’t worry though – I always place something behind the pumpkin to stop them rolling away! Plus the babies just love to suck at the flesh which is always attractive…

After the shoot I will send you a private and secure link to your images. You will be able to  download all the images as the price includes them all.

I haven’t yet finalised the best spot as it all depends on light and colour. I will decide this a week before the shoot.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to bring?

Any oufits / costumes that you want your little person to wear. Any hats or head accessories. A warm blanket to wrap them in afterwards. Some squeaky toys or their favourite toys to waggle around to engage them and make them smile.

What do we do if the weather doesn't play ball?

If the weather looks too cold or wet for us to comfortably shoot outside, then we will postpone to another date.

I will do my best to get the digital images back to you within a week.

I want to turn my images into presents for my family - can you help with that?

I certainly can. When you received your gallery of images, you are able to shop directly through the shop, or alternatively you can look at the products part of the website.
