Babies, babies, babies! Give me all the babies. Not really, but at least just let me photograph all of them.
This little guy came in for his newborn session at 5 weeks old and even though mom was little nervous he wouldn’t be as sleepy as a 1-3 week old, we still had an amazing session.
For this baby boy, I opted to stay with neutral earthy tones like browns and creams. From posing, swaddling, and maneuvering, this guy was just a joy to work with. The best part was just when we were wrapping up, he opened his eyes and let me capture that precious newborn gaze.
Pro Tip – while it is ideal to have your newborn photographs taken around 1-3 weeks, this session is proof that it’s not always necessary. Besides this session, I’ve been able to capture beautiful pictures of babies up to 8 weeks old. Don’t stress and just take care of it when you can.
