So far this year I’ve had a really great run of ‘older newborns’ at 21-28 days. It can be difficult to get many ‘posed’ photos from a newborn over 2 weeks but with some patience and technique it can be done.
This particular little lady’s mama was really on the fence about getting newborn photos done. Her first was maaaybe not the easiest baby? Not that you’d know it now, she’s as sweet as pie! But mum had her reservations about the idea that her baby would be the ‘type’ of baby who could be photographed in this style at all. It’s a really common fear moms have, that their baby is going to cry the whole time and it will all be for naught.
I’m not sure exactly what changed her mind, but I’m so glad she did! It was such a pleasure to have all three of these lovely ladies in my studio for the day.
Rumor has it they had a pretty good time too.
