My newborn lace tent prop is one of the newest that I’ve added but I have to admit to already being a favourite of mine. It so complements the delicacy of a sleeping newborn.
There are lots of way to style it and introduce colour into the equation but for this session, we were keeping things along a cream palette so I just stuck with using the contrasting texture of fur and some little white roses to set it off. The beauty of a newborn session in my studio is that you will be choosing the props and colours that you love before you come so you create a gallery of images that suit your style. I do make some style decisions along the way but they’re always based on what you’ve told me you would like and, of course, we can tweak things further during the session until it’s perfect for you. It is never a case of me making the decisions about how we’re going to photograph your baby – you’re always in control.
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.
