Photography For Little People by Rebecca
Simple, natural, timeless. You have waited 9 long months for your baby to be here, probably longer, so I like to make your baby the hero of the photo. No elaborate set ups, such beautiful, natural images of your precious little one.
Award winning bump, newborn and family portrait specialist. I come to you and create images you will treasure forever x
Hi! My name is Rebecca Downie Im a specialist maternity, newborn, baby, toddler and family photographer across West Sussex, including all local areas such as Reigate, Gatwick, Haywards Heath, East Grinstead, Horsham and surrounding areas. I also specialise in baby and hand and foot casting or impressions which are framed beautifully.
I offer a unique service complimentary photo shoot in the comfort of your own home. I am a Lindfield, Haywards Heath, West Sussex based newborn photographer who travels across Sussex and into Surrey and Kent. This is especially important for those precious newborn days. Mummy is much more relaxed, and therefore so is baby making it easier to capture those sleepy curled up newborn images we all love.
I am fully trained in the art of newborn safety within photography meaning I have learned how to safely pose baby so they are comfortable the whole time.
You can find out more about me and my work via facebook (@photographyforlittlepeoplebyrebecca) and other social media.
How does it work?
I will bring my mini studio to you. I schedule appointments in the morning as baby is more settled.
Sessions run at babys pace and therefore are around 3 hours.
Your baby is the main focal point of your session.
I use minimal props and outfits to ensure your images are timeless and all about your baby.
I will not rush any baby and I follow their lead, I allow this time as you can never predict a newborn babys sleep or mood.
Following your babys photo session we will be able to view on the day. No waiting around or second appointments. I will bring with me my beautiful samples and together we can pick the best images for your choices of finished products. All products and images are to be chosen at this time.
I also offer 'watch me grow' sessions over babies first year. Sitter sessions and my new 'paint smash' birthday shoot. If you are bored of cake smashes and looking for something unique and fun to celebrate babies first birthday milestone get in touch to find out more.
All of our images are printed onto the best quality paper that are guaranteed to last a lifetime. Using state of the art print technology. I work closely with our in house framing unit to produce specialist wall art for homes. Everything is made to order and to a fine art standard, you can be sure of the very best hand crafted products. I offer a beautiful range of designs to compliment your home; bespoke frames, impression frames, acrylics, canvas, fine art frames and the stunning alumini range for that extra wow factor.
Please contact me for the full list of beautiful finished pieces.
Baby Hand & Feet Impressions
Our impression range is also especially beautiful, Photography for little People are the leading experts in the UK with our designs and at taking impressions of childrens hands and feet, the youngest baby to have their impressions taken was just 6 hours new. Your babys hand prints framed start at just £129.
The session is offered to you complimentary. I like my images to speak for themselves.
Should you however wish to order anything there is a minimum order fee of £179.
When is the best time to book and get newborn or baby photos taken?
I love photographing newborns and capturing amazing memories for my families. Every newborn photo shoot is unique and will go at babys pace. Newborns are best photographed between 3-10 days new. During this time the babies will usually retain some of the natural curl from when they were in the womb. The first week works best to get peaceful, sleepy and very curly poses.
When you book we will pencil in your due date and then we can agree the time and date when little one has arrived. I can only book limited number of newborns into my diary each month as we dont know when they are going to arrive!
A £50 non refundable deposit is required in order to secure your booking.
This will be deducted from your final order.
Maternity Bump photo shoot
Pregnancy can be hard on some women, and we definitely earn our warrior badges for growing a little person. There is a strong connection between mother and baby and to capture that before they even make an appearance is a wonderful way to celebrate you and your amazing body (even if you arent feeling amazing right now!)
The best time to capture your bump is between 32-36 weeks pregnant. At this stage you have hopefully regained some energy, your bump is nice and round but you can still move around fairly easily. Partners are most welcome in the shoot. If you feel self-conscious please do not worry as there are many ways we capture the bump and, if you wish, edit out any marks or blemishes.
As with the newborn photo shoot I ask for a £50 deposit.
I offer an affordable 10 digitals package for £229 when booked with a newborn photo shoot
Families and siblings
Siblings are welcome in both maternity and newborn sessions and I am always happy to capture family portraits within your sessions. Do advise me in advance so we can plan in it. That first family photo, or the early blossoming of a sibling bond is wonderful to capture.
As they grow
I am the preferred photographer for many of my clients, revisting the families many times. I also offer complimentary 3, 6 month shoots as well as first birthday sessions (portrait, cake smash, or paint splash) as well as older toddlers and family groups. As with maternity and newborn there are many ways you can chose to display your favourite images and discounted digital packages are available for repeat clients.
