My little client today just turned 4 weeks. It’s a really tough age for a newborn shoot which is why I recommend booking your newborn session while your still pregnant. I really prefer to shoot my newbies between “fresh out of the oven” to 10 days old. Within this time period they keep their soft-as-bread-dough, moldable, curled little selves. The older they get the more awake and alert they become and I can really only get those posed newborn shots when your little one is out like a light! Regardless, this (totally svelte) momma really wanted to at least try–and that we did. 4 hours later, with fleeting moments of slumber, we managed a few backdrop changes, a couple of hats and one feeding in between. Though “the” pose (the propped shot) eluded us, I think we got some beautiful shots of this little handsome guy.
