Peaceful Sleeping Newborn on my Miniature Bed Prop
This little girl was a real pleasure to have in the studio to visit for her newborn photo shoot. Here she is sleeping most peacefully on my miniature bed prop.
The bed itself is pretty small but she looks tiny on it and that’s because she was in such a hurry to meet her mum and dad that she made an early arrival weighing in at a little over 4 pounds. She is little but feisty though and she made it home in good health and in super quick time so it was an extra pleasure to meet her. While it’s important to get newborn photography done as early as possible – between five and ten days is the ideal time if you want those sleepy shots – when babies are early, we get a little longer to work with.
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.
