Newborn Photography – with an Elephant for Company
Baby Giorgio is a naturally happy chap it would appear. He was a settled and chilled out visitor to the studio even favouring me with a good few sleepy smiles.
Still what’s not to love about life when you have a full tummy, a snuggly blanket and your very own personalised elephant for company? Not a whole lot…
Of course he looks very happy and peaceful here but babies don’t necessarily stay that way through their session. Lots of parents worry that their babies will cry during the session and the truth of the matter is, that they probably will. But that doesn’t mean we just stop and go home – we work through it until they’re ready to settle and we carry on.
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.
