Newborn Photography East Grinstead West Sussex

When you visit for a newborn photo shoot, you’re always invited to choose a digital background to include in your finished image gallery.

It’s all included in your session price – some folk like their photos to be created in real life and so they’re not to everyone’s taste but the option is always there if you want it.

You need to choose your backdrop in advance as I have to shoot specifically for it as part of your session – it’s not a case of simply picking a photo from your collection and plonking it into an image. I need to make sure that the pose, position and blending options are perfect to give the most natural results.  They’re a fun way to add in additional ‘props’ or even a little fantasy element into your photo shoot and they’re great for me as they allow me to expand my range of props beyond what I actually have physical space to store.

This was the first time that someone had actually requested this adorable little pumpkin crate set up and I have to say, I just love the results!

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.
