Are you pregnant? Do you know someone that is pregnant?
I am now taking bookings for newborn baby photo sessions at my studio in Billingshurst, Sussex.
The best time to book your session is as soon as you find out you are pregnant, it is only once your baby arrives we then confirm the actual date, not before. The arrival of a new baby is a crazy time and one that passes in a blur so you will be extremely excited that you were organised enough to book your session, which is ideally done within the first two weeks. You can then relax knowing you have some gorgeous memories of your baby….
I love the spring and after living away from Sussex for the last 20 years it doesn’t stop surprising me with its beauty!
Whilst driving home from another of the children’s clubs last night we drove past this field. A quick U turn and a screeching halt in a lay by I bundled the children out of the car to enjoy the moment.
This was at the edge of the lay by with the sun setting in the background, while my daughter was in the field watching it set.
They then decided they wanted to hide along the path before we jumped back in the car and headed home.
I think writing this blog and technology going wrong actually took longer to do than capturing a lovely moment with my children…
So, put down your tablet, grab a camera and go capture a moment.. happy snapping this spring x
Spring is on its way!! Therefore, it won’t be long until the bluebells arrive and that means it’s time to book your session…
As bluebells only last a few weeks there will be limited dates available so if you are interested in capturing some memories of your family it’s best to book as soon as possible. Sessions will last about 45 minutes and location will be confirmed closer to the time, once I know the most beautiful area to use. At the moment possible locations include Barns Green, Horsham, Crawley or Billingshurst.
I will soon be putting together some dates for Autumn mini sessions in the Horsham and Crawley area. If you would like me to email you details please fill out the contacts form and I will add you to the mailing list. These sessions take half an hour so are cheaper than the full portrait session..
Well its been such a busy time recently with starting a new part-time job plus finishing all the editing from previous sessions; I can finally say I have now caught up. If you are interested in booking a newborn photo shoot remember the best time is within the first two weeks of your baby being born when they are at their sleepiest and tiniest. This way it is easier to capture all those tiny features while your baby is happily sleeping.The only problem with newborn photo shoots is that when your baby arrives YOU do not wish to be booking a session, it’s the last thing on your mind. You will however be extremely pleased that you were organised enough to have booked it while you were pregnant so all you need to do is turn up. You can then breathe a sigh of relief knowing that your gorgeous new baby can grow and you can relax because we have captured the all important new baby memories.
If you are interested in booking a session its better to book as soon as you know you are pregnant. It doesn’t matter that you don’t know the exact due date, I will put your name in the diary and then when baby arrives we can arrange a time that suits you best. The nicest thing about booking your session early is that you can forget about it until your baby arrives and then at this point you will be super excited that you were so organised!
The sessions do take about 3 hours but this is because its such a relaxed session and completely baby lead. Your little one needs to be happy so we stop as often as required to feed and cuddle as needed.
I am also able to do a maternity photo shoot if you would like some memories of how gorgeous you looked during your pregnancy. There is a discount for booking both at the same time. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Wow, what fun this session was. Reuben was only 8 days old when he came for his 1st set of photos and what a dream baby he was. As soon as he arrived his mum gave him a feed so that he was full up and ready to sleep, and he did just that.
He was such a relaxed little boy that we were able to just put him where he was needed and he just slept. His brothers were wonderful but slightly harder work (they were awake) but they did a great job and loved playing on the trampoline when they weren’t required for photos. It was easy to see that they were really pleased to have a little brother and just loved to look after him.
At the end we had a quick session with mum and dad as well which was really fun as everyone completely relaxed and just enjoyed themselves. I have absolutely loved editing this session and am so pleased that the family love them just as much as I do.
So, those of you that have been following me will already be aware that I currently have a FB page and that the website is a new thing….
Well actually it’s been around for a little while but it’s all been a little hectic so the website has taken a back seat. After a little nagging from my sister in law…(her fiancé, my, extremely, talented brother in law (DVT WEB DESIGN) set the website up for me because I have no idea how or where to start! Or, in fact, how to continue hence it halting progress.)… Anyway, after a bit of gentle nagging… And a lot of explaining my website is now back in progress. (If you do need any help with building your website definitely send him a message because he really does do an amazing job!)
Please bear with me whilst I set it up and if you have any questions either pop to my Facebook page or email me for more information. I promise you my photography is way better than my website knowledge…. 😃
