When it comes to newborn props, my birth announcement set is definitely the most requested to be added into a photo shoot.
Quite often, a trip to the studio will be the first outing people make with their newborn so it’s a great opportunity to create an image that lets all your friends and families know the details of your new family member.
You can select to include it in your session by letting me have the details on your pre-session options form – I just need name, date, time and weight at birth so I have have it all set up for you when you arrive.
As a side note, I’m ashamed to say that it’s only very recently that I’ve worked out that putting the Scrabble letters onto Sellotape is a whole lot easier than trying to neatly arrange them in a session which has really helped me out, especially with longer names. Ah well, live and learn I guess.
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.
