When you visit for a newborn photo shoot, you’ll be invited to choose a digital backdrop from the range that I have collected. You don’t have to of course but you’re welcome to.
You can browse the range the day before you come to visit and make your selection on your pre-session options form which gives me all the information that I need to make sure I have everything set up and ready for you when you come to visit. Now you might be wondering why a choice of digital backdrop matters in advance as there isn’t actually going to be anything there to organise but I find that they work best when I shoot directly for them. That includes making sure I have the right pose and colour background to create a successful composite image – most of the work in getting good results is done in camera. Get that right and the editing is secondary.
This is one of my favourite newborn digital backdrop range and the one I most wish that I could have in real life (I do love a teddy bear). Sadly my studio isn’t big enough for me to have every single set up that my heart desires so I love the fact that I can expand my range with the digital options.
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.
