Oh and I did want to mention......
I often get asked what the best time is to have photos taken if the ideal window (2 weeks) for newborn photography has been missed.
I think ideally when baby is 4-5 months old. At this time they are full of smiles and able to stay awake for longer periods.We want to get as much happy awake time as possible. The session will at this age probably end with a couple of shots of a sleeping baby.
Newborn baby sessions take slightly longer than older baby, child or maternity sessions due to tiny babies having to feed often. On average a newborn session can take up to 3 hours. The ideal time to have your newborn photographed is within 2 weeks of their birth. This is when you get those lovely sleeping newborn photos that just melt your heart. Once babies are older than this they start looking a bit more grown up and they don't sleep as easily. It's worth booking your newborn session while you are still pregnant to ensure that you get a booking on the day you want.
