Presenting baby Jonathan and his very lovely head of hair. Honestly, his parents will actually need to use the baby hairbrush – don’t think I used that for about two years with my son! Still he was a very good boy in the studio and happy to snooze with his new friends and model my brand new baby hat among lots of other things.
We had the opportunity as he was so good to play with lots of different blankets and accessories from my prop stash as well as the lovely items that his parents brought along with them. Then we finished the session with some images of father and son together as well as some with mum in as well – it’s not obligatory but it’s definitely great to capture those very early images of your new 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.
