Meet sweet little Baby A …….
Normally I recommend, as do other Newborn Photographers, that you bring your Newborn in for his or her Portraits between the age of 5 and 10 days for the best shots. This goes double for girl babies. From experience, babies are 'normally' more curly and settled during this period, when they are still adjusting to being out of the womb and haven't yet discovered the need to stay awake and check out their surroundings. Girls, even more so, seem so quick to be alert as newborns.
Not this sweet little girl! Baby A came in to the studio at 5 WEEKS of age. Yep! 5 weeks. What did I do differently to capture this older babys' portraits? Absolutely NOTHING! We ran through the same routine as always, with Mum following my step-by-step set of INSTRUCTIONS for having little A ready for her shoot. And it WORKED! This sweet little darling gave us a BIT OF EVERYTHING for her shoot! She settled, she slept, she stared wide-eyed…. all while I gently talked to her and captured some darling shots for her beautiful parents, Gayattre & Ruwan to enjoy.
The 5-10 day guideline is just that - it's a GUIDELINE. It's not a hard and fast rule. If you or baby are unable to leave the house to get to the studio (and don't want a home-visit style shoot) it's OK. We can wait until you are ready. It certainly is best to get in as fast as possible, but it's not the end of the world if you simply cannot. If you have a large baby you definitely want to consider the style of images you are wanting. This will change which props are available for baby and determine whether or not you can get those cute curly poses.
