How does the illustration of my baby get scaled to their birth size?
In preparation for your birth print, I ask that you provide me with a photograph of your newborn baby. From this photo, I artistically illustrate your baby using their exact height measurement.
*As most photos provided have baby legs in a bent position, I have created a scaling measurement system. Please remember, however, that every child is proportioned differently.
While some illustrations may not be 100% accurate, they will be close.
Optional – To help with accuracy you can upload a secondary image of your baby with at least one straight leg to help with scaling. Or a measurement from the top of your newborn baby’s head to the underneath of their bottom.
What is the best way to take the photo?
- Lay your baby down flat on their back or side.
- Without clothes so we can see all of their gorgeous body creases (nappy off or private area covered with small cloth is preferred).
- Take photo from directly above.
- Baby’s arms can be curled up, but not spread out to both sides in a T shape.
(An example of what not to have is in the photo gallery. The birth print is limited by width, so ensuring arms are not splayed out means no part of your baby will be cut out of the design).
*If you don’t have a photo that meets these specifications e.g. wearing clothes or is in NICU please email your photos through to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will double check that they are suitable before you place your order. In most cases they are fine and you can go ahead with the order.
How should I position my baby for the photograph?
It is great to see your baby’s side profile, that tiny noise is so adorable, so try to get it in shot.
What if a small part of bub is missing from the photo?
It’s ok if a few cute little toes, fingers or the top of bub’s head are out of frame. Full body shots are preferred, but I will do my best to make the image as close to that of your baby as possible.
Is it ok if baby is in a singlet or singlet suit?
Yes. As long as his/her arms and legs are uncovered and bub’s positioning is correct, your photo will be usable.
What size is Precious Little Print – Birth Print?
50 x 70 centimetres.
Does the picture need to be a newborn?
It is best for the image to be as close to newborn as possible. However a 0-4 month old will still be usable, they may just be slightly chubbier than their newborn self.
How much is shipping?
I offer free shipping worldwide. I take great care when posting your birth prints, they are rolled and posted in mailing tubes to ensure they are delivered to their new home in perfect condition.
How long will it take for my birth print to arrive?
- Australia: 2-4 weeks
- Rest of the world: 2-5 weeks

Who will create the illustrations?

What if my birth print looks different from the photo?
It’s important to remember that all artwork will be slightly different to your photographs as each image is artistly illustrated. The illustration you receive will still be highly recognisable as your baby, unfortunately I cannot offer refunds or exchanges due to the nature of the artwork.
Can I return my birth print?
As Precious Little Print is custom made and one of a kind, unfortunately I cannot accept returns or offer refunds.
