This beautiful sleeping lady was the very first to put my newborn wood hammock to use and I was so excited to try it out.
It’s a brand new prop that I came across online and ‘just had to have’ which is the way it tends to work with me! We had a great session as she was really peaceful and easy to move and we’d actually already done one prop plus a lot of work on my giant beanbag which is what we normally expect to get to during a session. She was in such great sleepy form that we decided to get out the hammock as it was another favourite of her mum’s and make the most of the situation. It is quite striking on its own and so it really didn’t need much dressing at all apart from the three little peonies and I love how the finished image looks.
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.
