Little Jack came to visit for his newborn photos and his mum and dad wanted to keep it quite simple so his natural beauty was left to shine through.
So that’s what we did. I used a plain blue backdrop and just added a few simple props, blankets and accessories to create some variety in the images. This little mohair romper is one of my latest additions to my newborn outfit collections and I love the softness and texture that it adds to the images – I think I feel the need to buy some more of them (not that I ever need much of excuse to shop for the studio!)
You’re also welcome to bring along your own items and outfits to include in your photo shoot to really personalise it.
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.
