This is little Stanley and his parents wanted to include some images with natural tones and maybe some floral accents – flowers aren’t just for girls!
That said, I did steer away from the big blooms in favour of more greens and whites in order to keep it simple while still providing a nice little lift of colour and detail to complement Stanley’s natural charms. To start with in the session, Stanley was comfortable and cosy on my giant beanbag to capture his images while keeping him at maximum sleepiness – babies do need to be pretty settled to use props in a photo shoot so I always have them on hand so we can take advantage of it when we judge them to be deeply asleep.
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.
