Most photographers recommend newborns be photographed within 7-10 days old. This is because babies change so quickly and lose their newborn features after about two weeks of age. Remember how your newborn would always leave their legs all curled up underneath them and how they would yawn and stretch and wiggle those toes? Yeah - those are the details we so quickly forget ... and why we want to capture images when they are still in the newborn stage.
That being said, please don't hesitate to reach out if your child is past the 10 day old window. This little guy was almost one month old when we took these pictures and he was a perfect model! Took just a little coaxing but fell fast asleep and let us play around with poses and blankets without any more than a squeal out of him!
