This is baby Archie and there is actually a really good reason why he is sleeping with a little set of digger toys – they are his big brother’s favourite thing and he has promised that they will play with them together when they are old enough.
So we decided to capture this promise at his newborn photo shoot by having Ethan lend them to him for a few minutes so we could get a photo with them. It’s hard to tell in the image but I’m pretty sure that Archie is looking forward to it!
I’d always encourage you to bring along personal items to include in your photo shoot as they help to tell your family’s story and make your photos really unique to you.
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.
