Is your newborn too 'old' for a newborn photography session?

Here I sit on a beautiful Tuesday morning drinking my tea and pondering a question that I often get from so many mommies who are interested in my services:

Is my newborn too old to do a newborn photography session?

In the several years that I have photographed newborns, it never occurred to me that a photographer would actually turn away a mom and her newborn just because her baby was over the so called age limit of two weeks. The whole purpose of a newborn shoot is to capture the little details and to document your baby while they are still so small in those first few weeks.

Although I do understand why some photographers recommend this. For example, newborns under two weeks can easily go into the more sleepy poses, they are more sleepy in general etc. However, In my experience I never had a problem getting some amazing shots of baby both in a sleepy pose and in some awake poses which are equally adorable and mommy always appreciates seeing the awake images.

I understand that taking care of newborn right after giving birth is intense and sometimes the last thing on your mind is booking a photography session. So it’s totally okay to push it off a week or two.

I happily take on baby clients as young as a few days to a few weeks to, heck, even a couple months!

Below are some sweet images of baby Yehuda, who is, wait for it, 5 weeks new!

Capturing your baby's first year

One of the most important things we do as new parents is document our baby's first year of life. Here is a session where we captured this gorgeous girl's newborn, 6 month and first year birthday session. It's amazing how much our babies change just in that first 12 months! 

Ariel's newborn photo session 

Don't forget to book a 6 or 9 month photo session! Your baby has developed so much and may even be reaching milestones like crawling and sitting. They are officially at that adorable baby stage right before they walk and talk. 

 

And finally their first birthday where we celebrate 12 intense yet amazing months of your child's development. I also like to celebrate mom during this session since it is definitely a major accomplishment on her part as well.

Cohen Family at Greynolds Park - South Florida family lifestyle photographer

What a perfect evening. I had the pleasure of photographing this super fun and relaxed family, the Cohens. This was one of my favorite outdoor sessions to date. We had a blast exploring Greynolds Park, getting some great shots of the family in different scenic spots. The three kids were adorable and full of energy which made it so easy to capture their awesome personalities. I love letting children be themselves at my family sessions, it takes the pressure off of them and truly lets them express their uniqueness. I made sure to get some shots of the family dog, she has been in the family for a long time so she deserves to be apart of this memory. Greynolds is definitely one of my go-to parks when it comes to family sessions, I am able to send my families a gallery with a wide variety of photos with a different look and feel. 

I hope you enjoyed these images as much as we did. Have an awesome week!
