Sometimes parents don’t realize the importance of newborn portraits until after the little one has arrived. In the whirlwind of emotions that comes along with having a baby…it hits you like a ton of bricks…you are now a family, you are responsible in this world for someone other than yourself…everything changes. You see how much their little features change daily in the first week and realize that time just hit light-speed and they are not going to fit snuggled in your arms like this forever.
Ideally we schedule newborn photos very soon after baby is born, within the first 2 weeks. Which is why it’s a great idea to get on the schedule while you are still pregnant. After 2 weeks, babies start becoming more alert with longer awake periods and can be harder to capture in some of our favorite sleepy curled up poses. Of course, we do successfully photograph babies of all ages…like these adorable twins who came to me at 3.5 weeks old.
It’s amazing how their little personalities start forming immediately! From Mom: “The babies are still very young but they both have very different personalities already. Our boy, J, is our thinker. He always seems to be pondering the world’s problems or thinking about something. We have been told that he is like me with the same facial expressions. Our daughter, S, is our happy baby. She makes the happiest and cutest facial expressions and loves to stay attentive and play. People tend to gear more towards her because of this.” This was so true in our session! J snuggled and cuddled his sister and made the cutest expressions while S wanted to stay awake and check out everything we were doing.
Thank you so much G family for trusting me with your precious babies! I hope you will treasure these forever!
