Presenting baby Maisie, sleeping peacefully in her flower nest at her newborn photo shoot – the image of newborn perfection!
Maisie is what is medically termed as a ‘dinky dot’ (pretty sure that is the correct terminology) so my nest prop was kind of big for her and so I added some extra flowers inside so she didn’t look too lonely. Anyway, I’m pretty sure you can’t ever have too many flowers in newborn photography so I knew I was on safe ground. Actually not that she cared as she was fast asleep throughout the whole experience really, including photos with her family and big brother.
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.
