This little guy came to visit at a few days old for his newborn photographs – following in the footsteps of his big sister just a few years ago.
He was a content little guy who definitely seemed to be having happy dreams! When older siblings are involved – especially if they’re under three years old, I usually recommend that they come along at the end of the session for their photos. It’s a very boring place for them to sit while we’re capturing the new arrival and by the time we get ready for their pictures, they can be thoroughly fed up with the whole situation. This is what we did in this session and it worked brilliantly. We had a relaxing time creating images of the little brother and by the time the big sister arrived, she was fresh and ready to go.
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.
