This was the last time that I used my newborn nest in its old form before I took it apart and remade it but it’s just as lovely as ever with the dark tones and lilac accents.
It had got a bit raggy round the edges and it was always a little bit big so that’s been fixed now but it was a great excuse to fill the extra space with florals so there was no real loss as far as I’m concerned. This is another of my props that is really versatile in terms of how you style it to fit in with the type of photos that you’d like to create. I do love it with the florals (and I have lots of different colour options when it comes to those) but it also looks great with teddies, birth announcement props, and also autumnal leaves, pumpkins and pine cones when it’s seasonally appropriate. It also looks great against my white wood floor drop where it can be accessorised with lighter shades to give is a kind of floaty quality. There’s really no limit to how you can dress it up to make your photos completely unique to you.
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.
