Newborn pictures are so wonderful. I love this time where I get to snuggle with the babies and the Mommies get to take a few minutes to sit back and relax and oooohhhh and aaaawweeee over how cute their precious baby is! Many people ask when is the best time to have their newborn pictures taken. Typically, you want to have the portraits done within the first 7-10 days of life. This helps so much because the baby is nice and tired and snuggly and loves to be swaddled up. Moms sometimes ask, “Do I need to be in the pictures?” and that is totally up to you and how you are feeling. Of course, I always suggest getting in a few pictures just to document this time, however, you absolutely do not have to. If you haven’t showered and just don’t feel like, that is totally fine! Parents and siblings are absolutely welcome but it is also absolutely OK to make the session all about baby! If you would like to contact me to set up your newborn session, please contact me here! I would love to photograph your baby!
