This family brought along a real range of items to include in their newborn photo shoot to make their session really personal to them. The dad was a keen hockey fan and so this is the shot I created with the jerseys of the three teams that he follows.
I also had some football shirts to include, a VERY well loved Winnie the Pooh, a brand new personalised rabbit, some blankets and some Harry Potter items to reflect all of the family’s interests and special gifts that they had been given. I had the best time thinking of ways to work them all into the images – of course it didn’t hurt that their daughter was a tiny sleeping angel and barely stirred throughout her session. I guess you could say the stars aligned for me to create the perfect set of images for these lovely people!
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.
