I love it when mums and dad get involved in a newborn photo shoot but I fully understand why not everyone feels camera ready.
Let’s face it, it’s crazy tiring and it’s a lot that you’ve already got to the studio in your baby’s first ten days so you’re already winning. Still, it is great to get in the picture and one way to do this is to get your hands involved. There’s lots of ways to do this – your baby will enjoy the connection with you and you’ll be in the pictures looking amazing without having to worry about your hair!
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.
