Newborn photographers generally want the parents to bring their newest addition in for pictures during that very first week after birth. Many photographers refuse to accept a newborn session after 14 days. The reason for this is mostly because babies tend to sleep much better in the first week and newborn acne usually sets in around 10 days old, though treatment isn’t difficult.
Whatever the reason, he is still a newborn and you still deserve a photographer who can capture the cuteness!
I am more than happy to take on a newborn session past the first 14 days even if it means that we’ll find those sweet eyes staring back at us most of the time. I have no doubt we’ll still get great pictures even if not the newborn poses you found on Pinterest. As with all sessions, it is fine to bring in ideas for poses and your overall vision, but it’s best to come prepared to go with the flow.
Jaxon was past that ideal window of opportunity for sleepy posing and spent most of his 3 hour session wide awake, but we did get a handful of sleepy pictures! We even captured a couple legitimate smiles!
Congratulations to this beautiful family!
