Today I thought I would blog a bit about newborn photography photo shoots in babies older than two weeks old.
This seems to be the cut off point that some photographers use for newborn photo shoots.
To me there is no cut off point. I am working for you the client and every baby is differenet what ever age they are.
Some babies are born two weeks overdue so in theory if they have a newborn photo shoot at two weeks old they are already 4 weeks old.
Other babies are born early. Little Scarlett I had in recently was born 6 weeks early she came to visit me at 9 weeks old which in theroy would have made her 3 weeks . Other photographers would not have booked her in for a session as she would have been too old!

This image of her looking at her mum and dad with such awe and love is something that will be treasured by all of them for many years to come. That feeling of happiness and love of holding your new baby is something only new parents will ever know . An image like this tells a story and to anyone looking at this image without know ing anything about the people in it would see A young family just starting off on their exciting journey of parenthood looking forward to all the ups and downs that life will throw at them. At this moment in time the most important thing on their mind is that litle girl and how much joy she is going to bring them both.
