New York Newborn Photographers | Two Bees Photography
Thomas Joseph. One week new.
Do you have a favorite session you’ve done. I mean I hate to play favorites. So let’s just say this newborn session is up at the top of the list.
I could have skipped all editing and posted because I swear this baby boy was just that perfect. His skin was amazing, he had a full head of beautiful hair and his smile? Priceless.
We had such a fun time at his session. The image in mom and dad’s hands could not be any more perfect. Look at that smile!!
Something tells me this is one very lucky little boy.
So what is the idea age to capture these special images? I get asked that a lot. For me its about 7-10 days old. Ask another photographer and they might give you a different answer, but for me that when it’s best.
Everybody wants to know why, but for me it’s a few reasons. Under one week and feeding issues aren’t quite worked out. Over two weeks and I find the babies aren’t as sleepy or flexible. Not to say the session can’t be done then, it can just take longer.
I always encourage expectant mommas to book in their 2nd or at the start of their 3rd trimester, to guarantee a spot with me in that first few weeks. Nothing is worse than telling an inquiring momma that her 4 week old baby is just too ‘old’ to achieve these poses!!
