“Is it too late to book my baby’s newborn photo session?” Sometimes baby’s age makes a huge diference in what poses they like to be and how sleepy they are. Usually younger newborns are easier to photograph and they allow the photographer to get those cute curly sleepy poses, however all babies are different and it’s hard to say how easy or difficult will be the session based only on baby’s age. I highly recommend to book the newborn session between 5-10 days after birth but I’m always happy to photograph older newborns. I’ll be honest, I’ve been working with a lot of “old” newborns and I’m very surprised how some of them are still so curly and sleepy, and I’ll tell you my little secret, I send a “preparation guide” to moms a few days before the session with some tips to ensure a successful newborn session and I can tell you, it works!

Zachary was over 3 weeks when I met him and he’s such a sweet baby! Love working with him and his family!

With love,

Moms frequently ask me when would be the next session after the newborn session. I think 3-5 months old it’s a perfect milestone to capture. At this age babies smile at you, make eye contact and most babies can even hold their head up, that’s why I like to call this milestone as “Tummy Time Session”.

Sasha is a sweet baby girl and she was 3 months old when I met her. She was so happy and we had so much fun together. I really enjoy capturing her and her lovely family!

Meet Anderson, 9 days new. I love his entire gallery and I’m very excited to share it on my blog! I love when parents bring a special item to their session that shows a little bit about them or their life. I had a lot of fun working with Anderson and his adorable family. How cute is big sister Georgia? Love her too!

If you can’t wait to have some photos of your little one like these ones you see on my website, contact me today! Is very important to book your session before baby arrives.  Newborn sessions are done between 5-10 days.

With love,

Newborn sessions are done between 5-10 but I’m always happy to photograph babies that are a little bit over that window of time and I tell mom that we might get only awake shots. Kasia was 37 days and she was PERFECT for her newborn session sleeping the whole time! I couldn’t believe how sleepy and curly she was, so adorable! That’s why I don’t turn older babies away, you can always expect the unexpected. I love working with her, she was definitely a dream baby!

Kennedy is such a beautiful baby! I meet her when she was 9 days fresh. I love when parents bring personal items with a special meaning to use on their session and we also had the pleasure to listen dad playing his guitar during Kennedy’s first photoshoot, it was so peaceful. I love working this lovely family!

*please note, the guitar image is a composite of 2 images. Baby is held and safe all the time.
