This is baby Emily who came to visit for a newborn photo shoot in my warm and cosy studio in Crawley Down, near East Grinstead.

She was happy to peacefully doze while I gently moved her around and dressed her up with some lovely props and outfits that her mum and dad brought along and some from my own accessory stash.  We started with my soft memory foam pads where we create the birth announcement image – so we set the clock to her time of birth, the calendar blocks to her date of birth, spell her name with my little wooden letters and write her weight and attach it to the mini dumbbell.  Then it was time to get cosy on the beanbag for the rest of her session.  She is an Easter baby so of course it would be rude not to dress appropriately but when I came to edit the images a couple of weeks after the shoot, the bunny outfit had slipped my mind for some reason.  It made me smile all over again!

A newborn photo shoot includes your five favourite digital images to download at print quality and costs £95.  Ideally your portrait session takes place when your baby is between five and ten days old as this is when they are their most sleepy and poseable.  All you need to do is get to the studio and then relax on my comfy chaise while I take care of getting you a stunning set of newborn photographs.

Newborn Photography

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.
