It was a real pleasure to meet baby Emilia as I’d got to know her parents a few years ago as I was lucky enough to the photographer that they selected for their wedding day. Of course it was a lovely honour to be asked to capture the start of their new family.
Emilia was indeed a delicate little lady and she was also the perfect little model – content to snooze as I gently moved and posed her from my cosy oversized beanbag through to her birth announcement photos and even into my newborn sized wicker basket prop. I look forward to keeping in touch with her over the course of her first year as she comes back to visit for her baby photography club sessions.
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.
