When I am asked when it’s best to photograph a newborn I tend to answer between 5-18 days old, as they are still sleeping much of the time and like to curl up, making posing and taking their photographs much easier. I have to say that when I get an “older” newborn, as I did with this guy at 35 days, it is a whole different and amazing experience. They are starting to interact and make eye contact, which makes the photographs feel different. This guy did end up sleeping for some of the photos, but it didn’t last long as he wanted to watch a lot of what was going on.
What a special treat I got during my photo session yesterday – not only did I meet a wonderful family, but I spent most of the time laughing. This little boy would make anyone laugh! His laugh was so amazing that I had trouble keeping my camera steady from all of my laughing. Thank you to this beautiful family for letting me capture a special moment for them.
