I am obsessed with the colors these lovely mom and dad chose for their gorgeous baby girls newborn session.
Mom also came in for her complimentary maternity session and so we were able to capture her still expecting and after delivering the baby. I absolutely adore doing this and seeings the before and after just weeks apart!! Read on about the best age to photograph a newborn
The best age for newborn photos is typically within the first two weeks after birth. At this age, newborns are still very sleepy and flexible, which makes it easier to position them in a variety of poses and get those cute, curly newborn shots. They are also less likely to be affected by colic or other digestive issues that can cause fussiness or discomfort.
It’s important to note that every baby is different, and some may be more alert or less flexible at this age. If you’re considering hiring a professional photographer for newborn photos, it’s a good idea to discuss your preferences and the photographer’s style in advance to ensure that you’re both on the same page. Some photographers may prefer to work with older newborns who are more awake and alert, while others may prefer to photograph newborns when they are very young and still in that sleepy, curly phase.
In general, the earlier you can schedule your newborn photo session, the better. This will give you the best chance of getting the types of shots that you want, and it will also allow you to capture those fleeting early weeks before your baby grows and changes too much. If you’re unable to schedule a photo session within the first two weeks after birth, don’t worry – you can still get beautiful newborn photos at any age. Just keep in mind that your baby may be more alert and less flexible as they get older, which may affect the types of poses and shots that are possible.
