Newborn Photography East Grinstead West Sussex

This basket is one of my newborn props and it’s a popular choice if you’re looking to include a prop but don’t want anything too themed or fussy.

In this case, we just let the dark tones and textures speak for themselves and kept it super simple with just a fluffy under-blanket and a knitted elf cap.  Of course, we can add in any range of florals, greenery or even teddies that you’ve brought along to style it up a bit. It’s a versatile piece and that’s what I like about it really.

All of my newborn props have been carefully chosen to offer us as much flexibility as possible in creating a gallery of images that are perfect for you – you’ll be able to talk about any colours or themes that you’d like on your newborn options form which you’ll receive before your session.  Also, always bring along your own items if you’d like to include and we can add them in too.

The other great thing about this basket is that it’s the perfect prop if you’d like to get older siblings involved but they’re still too young to offer support to your new arrival themselves.  Once your newborn is settled on the basket, we simply get your older child to kneel behind it and put their hands on the basket sides (obviously we have a parent just out of shot to make sure everything stays safe!).

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.
