Newborn Photography East Grinstead West Sussex

I’ve been very excited to meet Lyra as I got to spend time with her parents when her big brother arrived a couple of years ago.

One of her mum’s friends had bought Lyra a vest that says ‘Though she be but little, she is fierce’ which is perfect for her as she is, indeed a dinky little lady, but none the less for that.  Not sure I’ve seen her fierce side yet but I reckon it might well be there!  For her newborn shoot, however, she was as meek as a lamb and happy to get moved and gently posed through a great range of props and accessories.  It’s no secret that I love dark wood and lilac and so I was delighted when her mum requested my newborn nest to be included in their session and obviously was duty-bound to get out my lilac vintage florals.  Love the result!

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.
