This was one very sleepy little fellow and so we made sure to take full advantage of this fact by settling him down on several of my newborn props to create an amazingly varied set of newborn images in the photo gallery.
Generally at a newborn session, we start with your baby on my super comfy giant beanbag as that is the easiest place to settle them and still allows us to get a great variety of images while maintain maximum sleepiness. When they are good and drowsy, we can always shift over a little in the studio to work on one of my newborn props but these can be a little trickier to settle them on so we normally only get the chance to do one per session. However, in this little fellow’s case, he was very happy to be moved about and dressed as he was way off in the Land of Nod and so we capitalised on this and managed to use all of the props that his mum loved in one quick and easy session. Including my adorable vintage styled newborn trolley – just love this one!
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.
