This little guy was a peaceful little visitor to the studio and happy to snooze while we created his images.
His mum and dad had requested my tiny truck digital backdrop and so, with him being so pliable, it was easy to shoot to create this image. In order to create a great digital composite, you have to shoot with it in mind – or at least, that’s how I like to do it so that I am happy with the results. That’s why I’ll ask you to choose a digital background in advance of your session so we can use the studio time to create the perfect image to edit into it.
Of course, it’s not like a menu in that your session is always led by your baby and so if they don’t like a certain position, I’ll never try and force them into it. So we can’t always get done everything that we’d like to but I’ll always promise to do my best to get exactly the images you’ll love.
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.
