Newborn shoots are my favourite. They require a lot of skill, patience and time but the results are well worth it. Those first few days of your baby’s life are so precious and that beautiful newborn stage is over before you realise it. Those teeny tiny hands and feet, the wrinkled skin and whispy hair.
Let me capture these special days for you so they can be cherished forever.
The newborn sessions are either taken in my studio in Brighton. If your Essex based at my parents house in Chelmsford or at your home.
The Perfect Age
Newborn sessions are taken within the first 10 days of your baby’s birth. This is when your baby sleeps best and still curls up in those newborn curly sleepy positions. In photographic terms once your baby reaches two weeks the newborn stage is over and every single day your newborn becomes more and more alert and therefore is not so easy to settle into a deep sleep.
The Session Length
I like the session to be relaxed and unrushed and allow up to 3-4 hours, allowing plenty of time for feeding and comforting.
When to schedule your newborn session
It’s never to early to book a newborn session. Because your baby’s birth date is unpredictable, I will pre-book you a provisional appointment which we can arrange when your baby arrives.
