This is the James family in with their newest member (and his big brother but he only came for the start of the session and then went off to do something far more interesting!).
Lovely to see them and to meet Freddie who is already full of personality even at such a tender age. He was so funny – every time I transitioned him to a new position he would register his protest and then immediately fall back asleep. As if he was just making sure that I knew who was in charge (always the baby!) and then once his point was made, he was happy to go back into the land of dreams and let me carry on taking photos. Anyway, gorgeous growing family and I look forward to catching up with them at intervals over the next year.
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.
