Newborn Photography East Grinstead West Sussex

Newborn babies and tattoos just make for wonderful pictures I think – I guess it is the contrast between that precious fragile new life and and ‘harder’ image that tattoos portray but whatever, I just love this picture…

I think it’s great when parents want to get involved in their newborn photos and there’s always time to do that in a session but I totally understand that not everyone feels camera ready when they’re just back from the hospital and tired out from the demands of the smallest family member.  So involving yourself in the images in terms of your hands or indeed your ink, is a great compromise.

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.
