This little lady came to visit for her newborn photos with her mum and dad and a very special guest star – a stuffed version of her feline furry sibling at home.
Now I have on occasion had dogs attend a newborn photo shoot for photos with their human brother or sister but I have a strong feeling that a cat might not be so cooperative (I mean, have you ever tried to get a cat to do anything that it didn’t fancy doing?) so I’m glad that the brought along a plush version than the real thing but nice to have them included in some form as I strongly believe that pets are family too.
Her mum and dad weren’t into anything too girly for their daughter so we talked over some backdrop options and they felt that the navy would go best with their home décor which is an important factor when you’re choosing what you would like for your photos. Plus I think that it shoots really beautifully – we did mix it up with some cream as well so there was a good deal of variety in the finished images – helped along by the fact that she was just a gorgeous little sleeping beauty who was happy to let me gently move and pose her through various settings.
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.
