This photo represents the realisation of a long held ambition of mine to gt someone who loves Harry Potter in the studio with their newborn. So you can imagine how happy I was when the parents of this lovely family asked for a little HP setup.
I have used this set in the past for older babies but I got it out of storage quicker than a blink when I had the chance to use it for a newborn! I won’t deny having my fingers crossed that the littlest wizard was going to play ball when it came time to set it up but they were perfect as perfect could be and happy to snooze on top of the trunk – magic maybe?
There were lots of other lovely photos in this set, including a three foot Peter Rabbit which I also very much enjoyed, but when it came to choosing which to share from a wonderful newborn session, I really didn’t have a choice.
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.
