Ellie came to visit for her newborn photos and was joined by her big brother a little later in the session so he didn’t have to wait around too long while we took his pictures.

Ellie’s mum particularly requested the dried flower crown as one of the accessories that we use for the shoot and I think it looks just lovely – just as pretty and delicate as the little lady herself.  I have an ever growing stash of props and accessories so if you’ve seen something online that you like, then of course just let me know.  Also, if you want to bring along your own items, you’re always welcome to.  It’s lovely to personalise your photo shoot and make the images really unique to you.

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.
