Newborn Photography East Grinstead West Sussex

Not all parents want to get involved in newborn photo shoots and I get it – you’ve probably barely had time to think since you’ve got back from hospital, let alone get ready for pictures.

That said, I’d always encourage you to as these are memories I’m pretty sure you’ll be happy to look back on. However, you don’t necessarily have to get all of yourself in the image if you don’t fancy it and shots with your hands support your new arrival are a really popular option.  I just love it when folks have tattoos as well as they contrast so beautifully with the delicacy of a newborn.  In this example, the dad in question had quite beautiful inked arms that I really felt I’d be doing him a disservice if we didn’t feature them!

Newborn Photography

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.
