Newborn Photography in West Sussex

Working with newborns and young siblings can be a little difficult because they are too small to offer safe support to your new arrival but of course you want to capture them both together.

This picture shows one way of getting the job done – I have a number of props that this works with including a miniature bed and the cutest little trolley.  This way everyone stays safe and you still get a great image. I should say though that there is always a parent just out of shot to make sure that everything goes as it should.   It’s also a good option for older siblings who may be able to technically hold their brother or sister but perhaps not in a way where you’re going to be able to pose them.  Or it also works if you just like the shot!  Multipurpose…

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.
