Timing is everything when it comes to newborn photography. For an in home newborn baby photo session I like to try and get in before they are two weeks of age. When we are looking to obtain those sleepy, posed shots the younger the baby the better. A baby that is fresh and new is much more likely to provide me with a deep sleep allowing me to work with their tiny bodies to achieve those uber adorable shots. They are also very flexible at this age and quite enjoy being curled up and cozy while asleep just as they were in utero.
However, during a lifestyle newborn session the element of time does not hold as much weight. The lifestyle newborn shoot focuses primarily on the interaction between the new baby and his family and surroundings and is much less centered around obtaining the perfect pose. Therefore having a baby under two weeks of age become less important. This is particularly helpful for Mothers who contact me once their newborn baby is over that magic age for traditional newborn photography. Just because a baby is a little “older” it no longer means you have to miss out on those precious newborn moments!
