Newborn Photography East Grinstead West Sussex

Newborn photography has a very unforgiving window in which it can take place to get those sleepy shots.  Of course, lockdown came along and derailed a lot of our plans in that regard and although it was lovely to catch up with folk when I was able to open up again, it did mean that the sessions had to be different to how we planned them.

However, even though an older baby is likely to be more awake (and wriggly!) for their session, there’s no reason why we can’t give the finished images a little of that newborn flavour.  In this case, we incorporated my silk flowers that normally would surround a sleeping baby but look just as lovely with a wide awake one.  Plus we get to see those beautiful eyes which is a bonus.

As a general rule, I recommend coming to visit for newborn photos when your baby is between five and ten days old and definitely within the first two weeks to capture them at their sleepiness.

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.
