Anyone who has ever compared perfect skin to being like that of a newborn baby has probably never really looked at a newborn. They are tiny, precious and perfect of course but their skin has been underwater for nine months and as a consequence, it can have all sorts of little cosmetic problems such as dry flaky patches, milk spots, red blotches and even little patches of jaundice.
Still, this is where my editing suite and skill set are essential as I pay a great deal of digital love and attention to each of your gallery images to ensure that your baby is featured at their perfect and beautiful best in your finished image collection. Those little blemishes are just a temporary thing for your little one and so they can simply disappear in your finished pictures – I’d never remove permanent marks such a freckles or birthmarks as they are part of them and what makes them special. For this reason, it usually takes me about two weeks to prepare your images for your gallery but all that waiting time will be worth it when you see the finished results!
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.
