Visit the Studio
You can visit my warm and cosy studio in Crawley Down, chill out on my sofa and watch your images being created. If you’d like to work with lots of props and accessories or add in siblings or photos of you as a family then I’d definitely recommend this option as we have the extra flexibility of the rest of the studio to work with.
A studio shoot costs £95.
Have the Session At Home
You can book for me to visit you as a mobile photographer at your home (the travel price is included if you are within ten miles of East Grinstead, outside of that, please contact me for a quote). I will arrive with my lights, bean bag and tubs of blankets and accessories appropriate for your baby’s gender. I will need a clear space of approximately two metres square and some natural light is a bonus. A Home Shoot costs £125.
About Your Newborn Photo Shoot
Newborn sessions take place in the first two weeks of their arrival into the outside world (the perfect time is between 5 and 10 days).
After this point, newborn babies tend to be more alert and wakeful so they are difficult to manipulate into those beautiful sleepy poses. They are also less keen on being folded up in the way they were in the womb. Each session is scheduled for two hours and I never take back to back sessions so we are never rushed if we run over that time. Two hours of photography might well sound a bit horrendous when you’ve just had a baby but it really is just a case of getting yourselves here and you are free to relax in the studio whilst I take care of everything else. While your baby is warm, relaxed and sleepy, I take the pictures leaving plenty of time for feeding, cuddles and settling as required.
I have to limit the amount of these sessions that I take on throughout the year as they are naturally time consuming and I need to be sure that everyone is getting absolutely the attention and time that they deserve. So I’d recommend that you book your session while you are still pregnant to guarantee it. How this works is that you book and pay for your newborn photography session for your due date plus 7 days. Then when your baby arrives, just get in touch and we can move your appointment to suit if necessary.
