To get those snoozy, curly poses at a newborn shoot, your baby ideally needs to be under 14 days (although I am happy to book newborns right up to one month old) But what about if your baby is older? Don’t worry, you’ve not missed out!
Generally parents book a newborn shoot with Tiny Baby Studio before baby arrives and this guarantees a session while baby is under 2 weeks. If parents get in touch a day or two after baby has arrived I can do by best to fit baby in but I am happy to photograph babies at every stage!
As your baby grows out of the newborn stage you will notice baby isn’t sleeping as much and is a lot more active. Your baby starts to notice and react to it’s surroundings and none more so than Mummy or Daddy’s smiling face! You will also notice your baby is a lot stronger and has filled out a lot and become less likely to curl up. All these thing generally prevent me from posing a baby in certain positions but it opens up the opportunity for beautiful awake shots and smiles!
I can still use my beautiful props to wrap and lie baby on and keep that ‘tiny baby’ look. I also have some lovely outfits in co-ordinating colours we can use to create lovely sets and with older newborns I am wanting to capture those gorgeous eyes and cute grins!
Parents make great props too and I love photographing older babies with Mummy and Daddy.
So rest assured that even if you’ve missed that initial newborn stage we can still create beautiful portraits while baby is still small and incredibly cute! But don’t delay…get in touch immediately so we can book you in at the earliest opportunity. Click here to book
