Stuff you need to know ....
My newborn packages have become one of the most popular things I do on a weekly basis. Not only do I love photographing new life but having a cuddle with scrummy babies is just wonderful for me. Being a mum myself, I know how precious these first moments are and understand that every moment is a true blessing.
Please get in touch between 20-30 weeks of pregnancy so you can be pencilled in. I do understand that babies generally come when they want to and its impossible to say, but having the due date helps me know where I am and what to expect. If you are reading this now and have just had your baby, still get in touch. If I can squeeze you in I will! Once baby is here, I like to capture them before they are 10 days old. They are still very sleepy at this stage and can be positioned into cute poses. I find that babies who are slightly older are more alert and less cooperate of being bossed around but we can go with it if they are older, trying other stuff too. My approach and style to photography is very natural and relaxed.
When I turn up at your house it looks like I am moving in! With my lights, backdrops, beanbag, blankets, heater and camera! I promise not to but be prepared for me to be with you for a good 3-4 hours. My newborn posing frame is fairly big and I need about 8ftx8ft space to work in. If this is not possible I am happy for you to come over to my house in Shoreham. Its very warm, friendly and has everything you need. I make a fabulous cuppa too.
Baby needs reassurance and feeding throughout. I ask if there are young siblings who you want to be involved that there is someone else to hand to help entertain them. Only for an hour or so to get the individual calming pictures of your newborn then I will capture them both, or more. I ask for a fairly calm environment to keep baby and mummy at ease.
This is really something amazing, not to be missed, you'll regret it!
