This is another example of newborn digital imagery as the only ‘real’ thing in this image is the little smiling chap. It’s not something I do a lot of but I saw this backdrop and just loved the colour of it.
There’s a limit to the amount of props and drops I can keep in the studio on a practical level – and it’s a limit that my husband already thinks I have exceeded. So sometimes, it’s nice to bring in a little variety in the form of a digital backdrop. It’s something that needs to be planned in advance as you get the best results when you shoot with the backdrop in mind to match in the lighting and that’s exactly what I did in this case. So if you feel you’d like to create something like this in your newborn gallery, then it’s worth having a chat with me in advance of your session so I can build it into our planning.
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.
