There is time in a newborn shoot to include some family photography if you would like to – not everybody does but the offer is there nonetheless.
This family were keen to update their walls with pictures of their family now that the three had become four and so we created this fun little shot as part of a set of family photos. Taking a photo from this perspective is also a great way of getting sibling photos when the big brother or sister is too small or not used to being able to safely support the new arrival.
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.
