This is one of my favourite digital backdrops for newborn photography as it has so many adorable teddy bears, and I do love a good bear!
When you come to visit for a newborn photo shoot, you’ll receive a form the day before so you can choose from my props and options and generally let me know what kind of pictures you’d like for us to create together. Of course, it’s not possible to completely plan a newborn shoot as your baby will have their own ideas about what they’d like to do with our time together but I’ll work as closely to our plan as possible.
One of the options that you can select is one of my range of digital backdrops (if you’d like to, they’re not everyone’s thing) and this teddy bear one is included in the list. All of my backdrops have been selected to be of the best possible quality and I shoot for them specifically at your session so we get the best possible image result. It’s a way of expanding your image range simply and also it’s not possible for me to own every single prop that my heart desires as there wouldn’t be room to get us in the studio if I did – I am like a Magpie with props, I pretty much want everything I see!
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.
