Little Elizabeth came to visit with her mum, dad, brother and sister and she really was an excellent little model in the studio, staying nice and sleepy after a quick feed to let us get a good set of pictures while dad took big bro and sis to the local park for a run around.
That’s what I recommend when you have siblings that you would like to join in the photos as a newborn photo shoot is a boring place for other little people and there’s not anywhere for them to play while we are working on getting pictures of your newest arrival. Then by the time they have had some fun, we are ready for them to rejoin the party and get some photos all together.
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.
