It was a lovely surprise to find an email in my Inbox from some wedding clients from seven years ago to let me know that they’d just had a baby and they wanted to pop along to my studio in Crawley Down for some photos.
So we scheduled our appointment and it was my pleasure to catch up with them and meet little Amelie. She was four weeks old by the time that she came to visit which would normally be a little old for a newborn photo shoot but she was in a hurry to make her entrance into the world and she hadn’t even reached her due date yet which means we did have a little extra time to play with.
So she was quite wakeful at the start of the session so we used that time to get some shots with her eyes open but she made it clear to us that she was ready for a nap and so, after a little feeding time, she settled wonderfully for a very full set of sleepy dreamy images. A gorgeous set of newborn photos for a very gorgeous little baby girl.
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 five 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)
