Our little lass here came to visit the studio with her mum and dad to capture some images of them together as a new family. At six weeks old, she was too old for a traditional ‘newborn’ photo shoot but there were still plenty of lovely images to be created.
Newborn photography, at least for those sleepy shots, is really best within the first two weeks with your baby and ideally between five and ten days. After that, they are far more engaged with the world around them and won’t tolerate much movement while they’re sleeping or those tucked up tummy positions. They’re too busy enjoying and learning about the new outside world they’ve found themselves in. Still though, there are lots of great ways to capture you together as a new family and those precious early days.
