Sarah + Luke
Newborn Sneak Peek
It is such an exciting time having your newborn photos taken! They change so quickly and many mums ask me when should I schedule a newborn photo shoot. I have been so blessed to photograph this family before and I just love them to pieces! Sarah had booked me in months before bub was due and contacted me from the hospital to say her beautiful girl had arrived! We waited until everyone was home and in a routine before we booked our date in.
Here's a tiny sneak peek from this gorgeous session.
HOW OLD DOES MY BABY NEED TO BE FOR THEIR NEWBORN PHOTOSHOOT?
Some photographers want you to have the photos taken in the first ten days of life, but for lifestyle photos that is not necessary and I am not like other photographers.
Lifestyle Newborn Photography is very little posing which means that the baby does not need to be super sleepy, as they are in the first ten days, for their photos.
Babies are perfect just the way they are and I am happy to do a newborn-style shoot at any age. That being said, they do change and grow very quickly in the first weeks of life. I recommend trying to get the shoot scheduled before the baby is three months old, just to capture that newborn sweetness.
WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY NEWBORN PHOTOSHOOT?
Most of my expecting mums inquire while they are still pregnant. I then place your due date on my calendar and wait for you to contact me after the baby is born. At that time we pick a date that works best for you. However, it is never too early or late to reach out. So, if your bub is already here, simply contact me and I will get you booked in.
To me, perfect newborn poses and specific ages aren’t important. Newborns are beautiful just the way they are. The process of hiring a newborn photographer should be pleasant and seamless. I can’t wait to capture your family during this special time.
