This was a very democratic newborn with each member of the family picking an image that they’d specifically like to create of the newest member.
The camping prop set was the choice of his big sister and he definitely seemed to approve as he was quite happy to take a nap under the canvas of my miniature tent. When you come to visit for a newborn photo shoot, you’ll receive a form the day before which let’s you browse some prop ideas and choose what you’d like and so you can share that with your family to get consensus or you can choose what you’d love for yourself – I’m not judging!
Of course, you don’t have to include any props in your photo shoot – some folk like to keep it simple – and that’s totally fine too!
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.
