Newborn Photography East Grinstead West Sussex

When I use my Moses basket for photography, I make sure that is super comfy by stuffing it fully of blankets and pillows to create a really cosy little newborn nest.

The top blanket of course can be changed to match the colour scheme that you would like – in this case, the family requested girly shades of pink and peach and I was more than happy to oblige. My peach blanket and the matching wrap are quite new additions to my prop and accessory stash but I really love them.  They are a gentle feminine shade but offer something a little bit different to pastel pink. I find that they also suit more different skin tones so I’d definitely recommend considering them if you want something cute and girly, but a little off the beaten track.

Newborn Photography

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.
