Hamptons Newborn Photographer
Do you know when the best time for a newborn session is? Most people don’t.
Most of the newborn sessions seen on my page were done around the 10 day mark. This is because babies under two weeks are usually sleepy and flexible enough to be posed in a variety of positions. At about 3 weeks these tiny babies will stretch out those legs, begin to develop baby acne and won’t always sleep so soundly.
But what about babies born early?
Well, I really think babies are ok up until their actual due date. Rachel here was 3 weeks old for our session, but technically she wasn’t even due until the end of the month!
When her mom contacted me, I let her know I only had one free day and she quickly reserved the spot for two days later. I had no idea she lived out in the Hamptons, and also no idea her baby girl was already 3 weeks old.
When she walked in I saw just how tiny Rachel was. An itty bitty thing weighing only about 4 and a half pounds. I prayed my outfits would fit!
She was the perfect size for all my buckets and baskets, so for her mini session we just did prop shots! I feel like the luckiest newborn photographer with sessions like this. Look at her amazing smile!
