I have a range of props that you are welcome to make use of when you visit the studio for a newborn photo shoot.
I usually recommend building a maximum of one prop set up into the session – of course you don’t need to have any at all if you’d rather not! You get to pick the one that you’d like when you complete your pre-shoot form before your session. That way I have everything ready and set up for you when you arrive to both minimise your time in the studio and maximise your baby’s sleeping time!
These props are all pictured here naked as it were, we can customise them all in a variety of ways to suit the style of photography that you’d like – changing the backdrop, adding blankets and accessories to create the perfect and unique image for you. I’ll be creating a series of blog posts over the coming weeks showing each prop in action so you can have an idea of the kinds of ways it can be used but I’m always happy to chat if there’s something specific that you’re looking for – just get in touch and let me know what you’d like.
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.
