When booking a newborn session it is always recommended that the baby is under 14 days old. As a mum myself, I know those first 14 days can be overwhelming, but I promise this is for a very good reason – safety
Safety is paramount during a newborn photoshoot, it is essential that the newborn is in a deep sleep where they are relaxed and malleable. Some of the positions and props used would not be suitable for an awake baby due to their sudden reflexes and movements.
Having said that, gorgeous images can still be achieved at any stage of a babies life. As the baby gets older we may not be able to use some of the props and poses but a new stage arrives where the baby begins to explore their surroundings and spends more time awake – showing off their gorgeous eyes!
I recently photographed a beautiful little baby girl who was just over 3 weeks old. She was an angel to photograph and gave me some lovely awake shots and then fell into a deep asleep enabling me to safely capture some newborn style shots.
Here are a few of my favourite, enjoy:
