When Covid first hit and we had to go into Lockdown, I was faced with an abundance of extra time and I decided to use it to really invest in creating some of the ideas that I’d never had the luxury of bringing to life before.

One of these was incorporating some digital backdrops into my newborn photography. I’d flirted with the idea before but I didn’t really have the editing skillset and I hadn’t invested time in either finding the right backdrops or understanding the process. If there was one thing to be said about that period of time was that I had as many hours as I needed to get on top of all of my pet projects so when I could reopen, they were ready to go.

You select the one you would like before you come so I can shoot for it at your session which insures a good blend and that the positioning is right to get the most natural results.

There’s a good range of backdrops available, from simply props that I don’t have room for to more fantasy set ups like the To the Moon or Balloon options. There not something everyone loves but they are there to choose from if you do.

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.
