This is Sienna and her mum, Amy, had won a competition with a local baby show which I was proud to be a part of – her prize had been a free maternity shoot and we had already finished with this when she booked in for a newborn shoot which I was delighted about. It’s always lovely to meet the babies that have been to visit as bumps!
Sienna was a tiny little girl, born at just 5lb 15oz but she had a big personality already so I can’t wait to see what she gets up to as she gets bigger. She was happy enough to let me gently move and pose her to create a beautiful set of newborn images to hang on the wall alongside the maternity ones.
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.
