The best time to take newborn photos
5-15 days after the birth are considered to be the best time for newborn photography. The baby is still very sleepy, curly, his/her skin is still clean and there’s no white dots or acne. That’s why it’s a good idea to book your newborn session while you are still pregnant. Give me a call or email, indicate the due date, and I’ll keep the date in my calendar. It’s a rough date, and it will be confirmed once the baby arrives and you are back home from the hospital. Booking the date allows me to save my time for your session and guarantee that I’m available.
But don’t worry if you missed that golden 5-15 days period and your baby is over 15 days of age. Rules can be broken! I have photographed babies up to 6 and even 7 weeks old as newborns. As a bonus you’ll get more photos with widely open eyes and cute baby smiles. Great, right?
I love photograph newborns, I’m very patient with babies and I have lots of experience with kids. My patience and passion allows me to calm and settle newborns while I photograph them. As a newborn photographer I have my own little tricks and tips to make newborn photography stress free for families which is very important to me.
