I recommend booking your newborn portraits in your 2nd or 3rd trimester. I prefer to do the newborn session when babies who are less than 2 weeks old. In my experience 6-10 days old is ideal. This is when they are still very squishy and sleepy, so its easier to curl them up into the womb like poses that we love. But sometimes medical issues or just a busy life gets in the way and parents aren't able to schedule their session until after baby is born. That is totally ok! I can often fit in last minute bookings and I am more than happy to attempt a newborn session with a slightly older baby. It can take some more time and patience but if your have your heart set on beautiful sweet images it is worth it!
Bennett's session at 7 weeks old took some patience, but we eventually did get him to sleep soundly enough for some adorable poses!
