Newborn Photography and the Rose Swing – Baby Lola
My rose swing digital backdrop is one of the most popular ones to be requested at a newborn photo shoot – and it’s easy to see why.
It’s super pretty and perfect for little girls and Lola was no exception. Although she was three weeks old at her session which is a bit older than I’d normally recommend for newborn photography, she was born a few weeks early so actually she was still extremely sleepy and happy to doze while I gently moved and posed her. When babies are premature, we can get a little longer before they get too wakeful to visit the studio for their newborn photos – conversely, if they are late, we get a little less time before they become to alert for me to move them while they’re sleeping.
When you’ve booked a newborn session with me, you’ll get the chance to choose a digital backdrop to include in your session if you’d like to. They won’t ever be the main part of my work but they can be a fun way to add some different images into your newborn photography gallery.
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.
