This was a very exciting day for me as I finally got to use my Hungry Caterpillar outfit at a newborn photo shoot.
It’s a beautiful little outfit that was handmade for me by a friend and I’ve been itching to get it in action ever since I received it. As it turns out, it was the perfect size to keep this guy snug as a bug – the ones that I’ve used in the studio before that are commercially available tend to come up on the big side so there’s a lot of tucking in involved to make it fit. I also loved the textures that this one has. The actual caterpillar that his mum and dad brought along to include was the perfect little accessory.
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.
