All babies are miracles but sometimes, there are some that take a little more miracle and those are IVF babies and quite often those parents have battled through a long and difficult process in order to welcome their new arrival and so they want to create an extra special image to celebrate their success.
This mum and dad brought along scan photos from along the way (the top one is where their new arrival is just five days into their creation!) and we created an extra special image using all of those to show the journey from start to finish. I love this type of image as it has so much meaning for their parents and it really is totally unique to them.
However your baby made their way into your family, I’d always encourage you to bring along items to include in your session to make it really personal to you. Whether it’s your favourite team’s shirt, knitted toys, personalised blankets, scan photos or anything else that matters to you – bring it along and I’ll do my best to create your perfect set of images that reflect your growing family.
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.
