This little fellow is already an international man, with Italian parents who live in England a dad that has Peruvian heritage. They were keen to include that in the newborn photo shoot and so they brought along some lovely Peruvian items to include.
They had an alpaca scarf, the softest traditional style hat and a set of gloves that had been posted to them from Peru for their little one to enjoy. Of course, he won’t be able to actually wear them until he is quite a bit bigger so we just included them in the photo. It will be fun for his parents to look back at the image when he finally gets to wear them and remember how tiny he was way back when.
You don’t need to bring along anything to include in your photo shoot but I do think it’s lovely to personalise your session so your image gallery is unique and perfect for you. If you’re not sure if something will work, then I’d say to bring it along anyway and we can work it out when you get here.
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.
