My little box of Christmas accessories makes it’s way into the studio at the start of November as I’m aware that around this time, people start to think ahead to holiday cards and Christmas presents.
This little newborn Santa hat is one that I’ve had for a long time but it’s still really popular – it’s a really sweet and simple way to add a little festive touch to your newborn photo shoot. The resulting images are sure to be perfect as a Christmas card at a time when all of your friends and family are keen to see the new arrival and you can even make them into baubles, coasters and other items that are great to commemorate your baby’s first Christmas.
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.
