This pretty little baby was nearly six weeks old when her mama contacting me looking for a boulder baby photographer. I chatted with her Mama and explained that most of the images on my website were newborns up to three weeks of age. Most newborns start waking up more often and do not want to be cuddled up into those tucked up poses after that point. We discussed that her session would be lead by the little one and we would try to get as many “newborn” style poses as possible and go from there. She completely amazed me and did an amazing job and was less feisty than most fresh newborns.
She started out being awake and showing us those big beautiful brown eyes and flashed a grin for me. It did not take long before she was sound asleep and giving her mama the set ups she was really hoping for! This little girl had such a full head of gorgeous hair against her creamy skin and looked amazing in every color we put her in. We were so lucky that she still loved being swaddled.
I love when babies surprise me and do the complete opposite of what I expect from them. She was a dream and made the session effortless.
I always tell my expecting clients that it is so important to book their newborn sessions in their second trimester. Ideally, posed studio newborn sessions are done within 5-21 days after delivery. There are times that mom and/or baby will require more time or parents decide to do photos after the ideal window has passed. I always try to accommodate families when our schedule allows for this reason exactly!
