Newborn photo shoots £75
Our gorgeous newborn photography takes place in our Crawley baby studio where we keep a wide selection of bespoke baby props for those super cute newborn photos every parent loves. All our newborn props, bowls, buckets, headbands, blankets, wraps and bonnets are available for all our customers at no extra charge, so we can style the best newborn photo shoot for you.
Our newborn shoots are informal, and we encourage parents to relax and enjoy the warm cosy environment in the studio while we work with your baby to create a set of stunning newborn photos for you.
All baby photo shoots include our time and talent to create a set of beautiful baby photos for you, plus full retouching and a personal viewing and ordering session within 2 weeks so you can choose which products you want to buy from us. A typical newborn photo shoot takes 2-4 hours depending on how sleepy baby is on the day of your shoot.
We have a wide range of top quality products available for you to purchase after you’ve seen your baby pictures. To see full details for all our products, along with full pricing information, please visit the products and prices page of this website.
Extra booking information
For the very best newborn photos we recommend booking your baby shoot soon after your 20 week scan so we can pencil in a rough date for your newborn shoot around 5-7 days after your baby is born… or in any case up to 2 weeks old. We’ll finalise your shoot date as soon as baby is born, to ensure that we hit the ‘magic window’ of opportunity for best newborn photos whether baby arrives a little earlier or later than expected. Pre-booked newborn shoots are always given priority for available shooting dates.
Baby already born?
If your baby is already born but under 2 weeks old, you’ll need to hurry! First, use the date checker on our booking form to see if we have any immediate dates available – you might get lucky! If you don’t see anything available, please contact us directly. We can’t promise anything but will try to fit you in if possible. If baby is already 2 weeks or older, you may be interested in a “nearly new” baby shoot. You can find details for our nearly new shoots on the older babies page of this website.
What’s included in the shoot fee?
All shoot fees include our time and talent during the shoot itself, full use of our newborn photography props, full retouching and editing of all images after your photo shoot, and a free viewing and ordering session so you can choose which images and products you would like to buy from us. Our shoot fees do not include any images or products, all images and products are sold separately.
Full retouching for every photo is included
After your newborn shoot, we’ll use our considerable Photoshop skills to fully edit and retouch every photo before we show you the finished images. This means you don’t need to worry about jaundice, or milk spots, blotches, rashes or scratches, or even flaky skin on your newborn baby. We’ll take care of all those things for you on every picture we show… and this is all included at no extra charge in your shoot fee.
After editing, we’ll invite you to see the finished images so you can choose which pictures and products you want to buy from us. We have no minimum sale, and definitely no hard sell… but find that most of our customers love the images so much that they usually decide to buy the complete gallery! This is generally around 25-30 fully retouched images, depending on how well baby slept during his or her newborn session.
Newborn photography at home:
We thoroughly recommend arranging your newborn photography to take place in our home studio in Copthorne where we can take advantage of our complete range of newborn props, top quality studio lighting, and a variety of backgrounds and other accessories to help us get the best newborn pictures for you. However if you are not able to travel to our studio, we can now offer a simple home newborn shoot on location up to 20 miles from our studio for a small additional fee.
Please note: because we can only travel with a small equipment set, home newborn shoots simpler, featuring a maximum of 3 different blanket/backgrounds and a small selection of wraps and ties only. We’ll bring our posing beanbag and some simple portable lighting, but you’ll need to be able to heat your room to ‘very warm’ (we usually hit around 28C in the studio)! Additionally, our location shoots are subject to a £50 location premium to cover our additional time and travelling expenses, so if you are able to come to our studio instead we do recommend that if at all possible.
