Newborn sessions are best done within the baby’s first 5 to 10 days of birth. A big reason for that is that babies are more alert everyday and it make it a lot more difficult to pose them. When baby Lincoln’s mom first contacted me, Lincoln was already 3 weeks old, and we ended up photographing him when he was 23 days old. I thought I was going to have to work a lot harder to make this session work, but baby Lincoln was a superstar. He pretty much slept through our entire session (with a few meal breaks in-between, of course :)). Thank you, Lincoln!!
Meet baby Oceana, everyone! Oceana is my youngest and one of the sleepiest newborns I have photographed – she was only 5 days old! Oceana’s dad and I were co-workers for years, and I was really excited when he asked me to photograph their newest addition to their lovely family! Oceana slept like a dream and we were lucky enough to get a great shot with her older brother together as well!
