My first session back in the studio after lockdown was an absolute cracker with this lovely family coming to visit to celebrate and commemorate their newest arrival.
I’ve met them a few times before but it was lovely to see them again and meet their new family member. We had lots of time to capture pictures of him on his own but we also took some time to capture all the siblings together. When brothers and sisters are very small, I work with everyone lying down and looking up at the camera so we don’t have any safety worries about the newborn being properly supported but luckily this big brother was a pro at looking after his little brother and so we could set up this beautiful little shot of the three of them together. I can see great mischief in their future!
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.
