Newborn Photography Sessions tend to be done between 5 and 21 days old. We can do this session up to 6 weeks, some later than this – it just all depends on little one. During this time little one is usually very sleepy and still in the fetal position and will barely notice the session happening before them. This is the ideal time for newborns to have their photoshoot so we can place them into different newborn positions without them knowing.
Older babies (6 weeks plus, unless premature) are usually more alert and tend to stretch out a bit more. At this time they tend to know their space and sometimes don’t like to be wrapped or swaddled so it can be harder to get them into specific positions however, you will find you get a lot more smiles at this stage. So if you are not bothered about them being tiny and in the exact position this may be the session for you. We have photographed many older babies post lockdown and have gotten some beautiful engaging images.
Please have a look through the galleries below to see the difference between the stages of newborn.
