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.
I have a beautiful, warm, clean & calm studio in Shoreham to offer you. You will be made to feel very welcome & comfortable whilst I work with your bundle of joy. You can sit back & enjoy the experience with a nice cup of tea or coffee from my machine.
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. My aim would be to get the shots of them together & maybe family ones to start with. Then if the child/ren are happy to sit & watch a film or programme in my studio then they are welcome to stay. If not, it would be at that point that they could be taken out. There is a park nearby or Costa for a nice treat. It is very important there there are not very many distractions & the environment is calm for me to get the best from your newborn.
This is really something amazing, not to be missed, you'll regret it!
