~There is no best time to do your newborn session
I know the recommended time to do a newborn session is within the first 15 days of life. However, after doing exclusively newborn sessions for 8 1/2 years, I find that doing your session after 15 days old is not an issue, as a matter of fact sometimes it goes better since I will be working with a baby that has adjusted to his/her new environment. I can guarantee beautiful newborn images of babies up to 6 weeks old and if your baby was premature, I will do the session whenever he/she comes out of the hospital.
There are several different reasons to do a newborn session after 15 days of birth.
Here are some:
If you are planning of doing a session but you are worried about having to do it within 15 days please don’t worry. After over 8 years of experience I am very skilled at posing babies of any age. Do I still recommend booking your session before your baby is born? Yes I do, because you never know how things will go and how you are going to feel. If everything goes well and you are ready we can do the session within the 2 weeks of age otherwise we’ll do the session later whenever you are ready.
