Call me sentimental, but I love to look back over the year when we get near to the end of it. It’s been one of my busiest studio years ever and I’ve had so many memorable sessions – too many to count.
I’ve been lucky enough to meet lots of very tiny people in the studio along with their families and here’s just a few of them that I’ve gathered together. It’s a horrible cliche, but it is a real privilege to capture all these brand new lives as they join their families. I’m not going to lie, the sessions can sometimes be challenging, they are hot and sweaty and there’s more than an even chance that I’ll walk out with at least one type of fluid from another human being on me, but I wouldn’t change it for the world! It’s a chance to capture such a fleeting moment in a families lives together – within a few short weeks, they will have a lively baby instead of a sleeping newborn and those photographic memories are something that I’m genuinely proud to be able to offer. Here’s to 2020 and more of the same!
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.
