Beautifully detailed casts of your own baby's hands and feet.
Our new casting service can be added to any portrait session or booked as a standalone product on its own.
Your finished casts can be finished in a variety of different colours and can be either mounted onto their own plinth or mounted into the frame of your choice.
Of course, being specialist newborn and baby photographers, we can also include the option to add a beautiful, professional portrait of your baby in your specially made casting frame, to go alongside your new hand or foot cast.
Available for newborn babies, older babies, children and adults - just let us know what you want, and we'll do the rest!
Simple! Just click on the "book now" button, and select a date and time to have your cast moulding created. All casting sessions cost just £25 for the session itself (products purchased separately).
If you are already attending a studio portrait session with us, a casting session may be added to your existing session at no extra charge - you'll just need to pay for the products you want us to create, as normal.
Casting sessions booked on their own cost £25 for the session itself, and we have a range of casting options to choose from, with prices starting from just £95 for a single plinth mounted hand or foot cast, to £250 for our largest custom framed product.
Absolutely! Our baby casts are made using dental quality alginate (this is a kind of warm gel we'll pop your baby's hands or feet in for a minute or two while it firms up). This is the same material your dentist uses to make a cast of your teeth - so it's completely safe to use on your baby's skin.
The actual process of creating your individual cast doesn't take very long - we just need a few minutes for each cast to 'set'... this means the warm gel becomes firm (but not hard - it still remains flexible) so with a little wiggle, baby's hand or foot will slide out easily. The whole process is completely safe and painless.
All the finishing is done later, so if you're booking a standalone appointment for a single cast (as opposed to adding this to an existing baby portraits session) then your appointment should take no more than about half an hour or so. Multiple casts will obviously take a little longer, but we'll advise on the details when confirming your booking with us.
After your casting session is complete, we'll have the unique mould we need to create your finished cast for you. This does take a little time to do, and once the cast is made we also need to carefully finish off the details, including 'retouching' any imperfections if needed, applying the finishing colour, and mounting your cast to your chosen mounting plinth or 3D frame.
Once everything is finished as per your order, we'll let you know your beautiful keepsake is ready for collection.
