The newborn session of Isla.

March is definitely warming up, the sun is shining and the snow is melting. Nothing more exciting to me that spring and summer….apart from a sleepy baby.

Isla was so sleepy, she was wonderful.

I managed to get all the poses with her, Mum and Dad will be happy with the gallery.

So your newborn has arrived and you’ve taken lots of photos on your cell phone – but they just aren’t cutting it. It dawns on you! This is a once and a lifetime moment, she will never be this small again.! Will I find a photographer this last minute?! While it is ideal to book your session prior to giving birth beautiful images can still be captured but for the following reasons, it is ideal to see baby in the first 2 weeks of life.

Isla was just shy of 14 days – she slept was was incredibly content.

However, I suggest getting babies into the studio within 6-10 days of life and ideally before 2 weeks. During this time babies are still sleepy and don’t mind getting curled up and posed into all the adorable positions.

After this point babies are more alert and attached to mum and therefore aren’t fans of being posed 4-5 times within a few hours. Growth spurts around 3 weeks make for a very hungry (sometimes grumpy baby) and at the same time it’s common to develop baby acne .

For all these reasons I suggest you book early to avoid missing these precious once in a lifetime moments.
