Baby Isla came to visit with her mum, dad and big brother and it was lovely to catch up with them after her brother had been one of my very early newborn photos over four years ago.

We talked over the kind of colour palettes that her mum and dad liked and we decided to keep things simple with a set of newborn photos taken on my giant beanbag.  We chose a girly pink blanket to match in with the style of her brother’s photos all those years ago (we didn’t use a pink blanket for him).  When newborn photography first hit the UK, there weren’t a lot of props used and so we kept her session in line with that so they’d look good hanging on the wall together.  So a gentle, simple set of beautifully accessorised images with one very pretty little girl.

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.
