Newborn Photography East Grinstead West Sussex

A while ago I decided that my newborn nest prop had seen better days and needed a bit of a makeover – I’m always happy to get creating so I ripped it apart to start it again.

This is it’s first outing in the new size-reduced and tidied up version and now I’m so happy with it.  It always a bit big before but I was happy to fill up the extra space with any number of accessories from flowers to teddy bears.  However, it’s the perfect size now and works just as a simple prop with nothing else added in – this family really wanted to keep their session clean and simple so I’ve just gone with a white fluffy blanket and a white wood floor drop. Using props in your newborn photo shoot doesn’t need to make your pictures cluttered if that’s not your style.

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.
