Ah, sweet Hayden! Isn’t she beautiful? 22 days old, and she slept like a dream. When her mom said “The girlier the better!” for her styled session I was so excited to use PINK! The last few babies I’ve photographed have been boys and it seemed like a long time since I’d used my girly props.
Older newborns won’t go into the same curly poses as an under-10-day-old baby, so I tend to do more wrapped poses and plan for more awake time. Hayden slept like a brand new babe though, maybe due to her being born 4 weeks early.
It is recommended to book your photo session while you are still pregnant, to get the photo shoot scheduled during the 6-10 day sweet spot. But these images prove it’s never to late to get beautiful portraits of your new baby!
