This very tiny little man came along to create a set of newborn photos in my studio in Crawley Down (near East Grinstead in West Sussex). His dad couldn’t come along because of work commitments but he did send along some props to include that reflect a real passion in his life – motorbikes!
He was so keen to get a photo of his newborn son in his crash helmet but I have to be honest, we only just managed to fit him in there so it was just as well that we didn’t wait too much longer! He definitely found it very cosy when he was in there, not even waking for a second when we tucked him into the helmet and happy to snooze away while we took the pictures. Of course, he’s not just posed in a helmet and left there – this is actually a composite image where his uncle was supporting the helmet from different points with the resulting images digitally composited together to create the illusion that he’s alone. Safety first always!
A newborn photo shoot includes your five favourite digital images and costs £95 including your studio time and access to my extensive prop and accessory collection. Of course, anything that you’d like to bring along to personalise your session to reflect that passions in your life is always very welcome!
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.
