I’m very lucky to have been in this photography business for a lot of years and so over that time I’ve photographed I don’t know how many families – some of them lots of times as they’ve changed and grown.
Even luckier than that, some of them remember me and recommend me to their friends and families and that really does mean the world to me. The family that came along to this session were brought to me door but another lovely family who had been to visit for newborn and baby photography club photo shoots a few years ago.
In fact, the big brother had come along to one of their sessions to join in the fun so it was my second time of meeting – the first time of meeting his little brother though! Freddie was a sleepy superstar and happy to relax and let me take care of him and his pictures. We even had time to set up a quick birth announcement picture, perfect as nursery wall art or keepsake as well as for announcement cards and christening invitations.
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. You can choose to have your session in my warm and cosy studio in Crawley Down (£95) or I can come to your home (£125)
