This sweet, squishy baby boy was born right before the world changed. Understandably, due to the uncertainty of everything that was going on, mama and daddy decided to put off newborn pictures until they felt safe (which is what I would have done as well!). The window of time that’s the best for a newborn session is within the first 12-14 days of course, but let me just tell you about this baby…..he was a DREAM! He was so calm and easy going! We did everything we had planned to do, and finally during the last set at the end he made a peep.
Mama’s with older newborns, this is for you: don’t EVER put off newborn portraits because you think your baby is too ‘old’ for them (outside of that 12-14 day window). That window of time is suggested because it’s when your precious baby can still bend and form easily into those ‘womb’ positions, and they’re still a little more sleepy that normal. This sweet baby boy is proof that they can still be done perfectly. Although at the time your baby may not seem super new and fresh to you at that 6-8 week mark, a year from now (or 10), THIS will be a newborn in your eyes ❤
