So your baby has finally arrived and you’ve taken tons of photos on your cell phone – but they just aren’t cutting it. It dawns on you! This is a once and a lifetime moments, she will never be this small again. Oh gosh! Will I find a photographer this last minute?!
It is ideal to book your session prior to giving birth, beautiful images can still be captured even past the 6-14 day mark.
During this time babies are still sleepy and don’t mind getting curled up and posed into all the adorable positions.
After this point babies are more alert and attached to mum and therefore aren’t fans of being posed 4-5 times within a few hours. Growth spurts around 2-3 weeks make for a very hungry (sometimes grumpy baby) and at the same time it’s common to develop baby acne as their skin adapts to life outside the womb.
We got very lucky with this adorable little girls session!
She was just shy of 2 months – so not so newborn anymore, but was tiny so we were still able to get her posed and luckily she gave us some smiles!
So moral of the story, I can always get beautiful images of your kids. However, if you are looking for the sleepy posed shots link in the newborn portfolio, make sure to book ahead or call me as soon as baby arrives! I take a maximum of 3 due dates per week in order to guarantee that I can accommodate all the babes, sine we never really know when they will arrive!
