The best time to do newborn photography is 7-10 days after birth. Why? Because that is when baby is the sleepiest, most easily posed, and doesn’t have that dreaded “cradle cap” and baby acne.
Is it possible to take newborn photos after that time period? Absolutely. Most likely, baby will be awake for most of the shots, but that’s ok. I love seeing those beautiful eyes staring back at me!
Baby Oliver was 4 weeks at his newborn session and he was a champ! Happy awake and happy asleep!
What a little lover!
