There are a lot of reasons to have a furry pal in your life – they can offer comfort and companionship and they’re always up for a game or two.  They can also serve as a comfy pillow when you’re very small and fancy a nap.

This little chap certainly found that out when he came to visit for his newborn photo shoot.  His mum and dad brought along a few accessories to include in his session and this one had the perfect long legs required to make him an ideal nap partner!  Toys and blankets are always a great way to personalise your photo shoot and you’re always welcome to bring along anything you’d like to have your baby photographed with.

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.
