It’s always fun to meet new little people, and I don’t want to be accused of favouritism here, but this little lady was a bit special for me. I’ve known her mum and dad since I was their photographer at their wedding a couple of years ago and we’ve always staying in touch through various shoots and general catch up sessions. So I was excited to learn that they were expecting a new arrival and was thrilled to do their maternity photography and eventually meet their newborn, Felicity.
We had lots of lovely props and outfits / accessories to play with including the super-sweet three stool that her dad had lovingly restored and of course, my favourite thing of all, a good big teddy for her to curl up with. We also couldn’t resist dipping into a little bit of festive fun – how cute are those ‘little pudding’ socks – they went perfectly with my Christmas pudding miniature knitted hat. I think there will be some very special gifts under the tree this year! Can’t wait to see her growing up, I can already tell she is going to be a lot of fun.
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.
