I am slightly kidding when I say you should come straight from the hospital to the studio for your newborn session. It really is ideal to photograph newborns before the age of two weeks – and the younger the better. There are a number of reasons for this. New babies change every day – we want to capture that sweet newborn look before it so quickly fades away. Also, younger infants tend to sleep better while being positioned and re-positioned – and we want them to sleep as much as possible. And finally, although minor digital retouching is included in your session fee, we want to avoid the baby acne that most little ones get at around 3 weeks of age.
Newborn Session Tips
Please dress light – I keep the studio nice and warm to accommodate the baby – as he or she will spend the majority of the time in their birthday suit. Please bring a good supply of diapers, wipes and milk for the baby.
