What is the best time for newborn photography?
7 to 10 days is our ideal age for a newborn portrait session as babies this age are pretty chilled, sleep most of the time (with 3am feeds being the exception!) and curl up easily in those gorgeous poses. While newborn smiles are not conscious yet, as new babies fall asleep they tend to grimace and pull faces that look just like a grin! Once bub hits two weeks old they tend to be more alert, and outgrow that fragile newborn look.
This age is great for capturing snuggles with parents, photos of baby feeding (if you want them) and close up shots of baby’s eyelashes, lips and feet. It's also a wonderful time to capture some beautiful photos of baby with their siblings.
A de lumière photographer will come to you at home for your newborn baby photo shoot, this means that even if your bub is a little older than two weeks, we can still achieve gorgeous portraits. We blend a mix of lifestyle photography with a newborn portrait session, so we cater for all ages of babies.
If you have your heart set on those gorgeous curled up shots, then capturing baby within the first 14 days are imperative.
