Little Max from Lichfield came to see me with his family just as he had turned 6 weeks old. Parents often feel like they may have missed the boat if they don’t get baby photographed in those first 14 days. Yes under 2 weeks is ideal for many newborn photography specialists, this is because babies are super sleepy and still in that new curly stage, and their skin is still mostly perfect.
But it is not always possible for many reasons and that shouldn’t mean you can’t still get gorgeous newborn photos. A huge positive for photographing slightly older babies, you usually get lots of lovely eye open shots as well.
So please if you are considering having photos and worried about having to get them in those first 14 days please don’t fear, we here at Blue Bean Photography are very skilled at posing babies of any age. Do we still recommend pre-booking before baby is born? Yes we do. The reason being is that the communication between us has started and you can feel free to get in touch anytime to let me know baby has arrived and we can book the session date. You may have an extended stay in hospital which may delay you getting settled at home. We might book the session date for when baby is 5 weeks old, but at least I know then to keep that date for you and you know you have a session date booked and sorted.
