What is best age for your newborn photos?
When possible, babies under 2 weeks is the best.
Newborn photography is centered on posed shots of the baby. Example; posed like a frog or curled up in a basket, bucket, or chair.… These poses can only be achieved early on before baby’s tiny bones fuse together and they’re still really curled up in the fetal like position and are still flexible.
I recommend scheduling your newborn baby photo shoot for around two weeks after your due date. The perfect ideal time is between 7 and 10 days old.
This is the perfect age for capturing all those delicate photos snuggling with parents, curled-up sleeping, shots of the baby nursing (if you would like), close up shots of their adorable lips, feet and baby’s eyelashes. This is also a perfect time to capture some gorgeous photos of baby with their siblings.
However, there’s no reason why you can’t have your babies newborn photo shoot up to or around three to four weeks old. They are just more adaptable and flexible within the first 2 weeks because they are also sleepier.
