I’ve been looking forward to meeting Isabella for a long time now as she is the daughter of one of my longest standing clients. I met Donna back in 2003 and we’ve stayed in touch ever since both in and out of the studio. She came to visit last month for her maternity pictures and then again for the ‘main event’ when her daughter arrived. So here was Isabella finally – a gorgeous baby girl!
She was also quite a sleepy little lass so we worked between feeds to get a great varied set of images – from festive ones with my miniature santa hat and soft wool candy cane, to a little spell in my little newborn bed complete with birth announcement details, through to simple and sweet shots on my giant beanbag.
A newborn photo shoot is best when your baby is between 5 and 10 days old as this is when they are at their maximum sleepiness and poseability to capture those dreamy shots. For this reason, I definitely recommend that you book when you are pregnant as this is one less thing to worry about scheduling when you’ve just got home from the hospital. We make an appointment for your due date plus 7 days and then adjust it as needed.
My newborn shoots include your three favourite digital images which you select from your online gallery a few weeks after your photo shoot – I don’t make you attend a sales or viewing session. Sessions take place in my warm and cosy studio in Crawley Down and cost £95.
