This was a return visit to the studio for this lovely family to welcome baby boy number 3 to the world with a newborn photo shoot.
And I’m not keeping his name secret, he hadn’t actually had it decided on yet but I quite liked ‘baby boy’ so that’s what I’ll call him. He had two big brothers to join in the session with him but as they were quite small and a session would have been quite an ordeal for them to sit through, they went off to the park with dad for a bit. Then they rejoined us at the end of the session so they could be part of the ‘brother photos’ and the family photos while their mum could still relax and watch her images being created. That’s a really great tactic if you want to get young sibling photos – they’re much more likely to comply with sitting for a picture when they haven’t been bored for ages and they’ve had a chance to burn off some energy in the park or at soft play!
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.
