Newborn Photography East Grinstead West Sussex

This is baby Theo and he is tucked up in my wooden bowl giving his bunny a good old cuddle at his newborn photo shoot.

It was actually a shot that I initially set up, minus the bunny, for a composite into one of my digital backgrounds so all that I really wanted was him in his little teal dungarees in the correct position in order to blend it into my background.  However, once I had done this, and I looked at him, I really liked the whole set up so I just modified it a bit and added in his toy to create a new image.  I’m a kind of ‘go with the flow’ girl when it comes to a newborn session – we make a rough plan in advance and then I grab any opportunity that presents itself to add to your gallery.  Theo was a sleepy little guy who didn’t really mind being moved around and so I’d have been crazy not to capitalise on that fact! It ended up being one of my favourite images in the collection…

Newborn Photography

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.
