It’s so important to book your newborn photography while you’re still pregnant. At the moment, my calendar is stuffed with beautiful new people and I’m having to say no to last minute bookings which I hate to do.
If you’re worried about knowing the date to book as of course you don’t know when your baby will arrive, then don’t be. We simply book for your due date plus seven days and then adjust as needed.
That gets you in the calendar and guarantees your session. I’ll always do my best to take bookings when your baby is already here but sadly it’s not always possible within the two week newborn window.
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.
