Lisa Carr, with Belly to Baby Studios, is a newborn and family photographer in Houston. She photographed this newborn when she was 10 days old and the session included newborn photography with parents. It is recommended that you photographed newborns between 7-12 days old. If you are a new Mom or have never had your newborn photographed professionally you may be wondering why. This time frame is recommended so that your baby will sleep a bit more and so that they are still flexible since their bones and muscles have not fully developed.
Babies that are older than this will typically stretch out more and reach out more with their hands during their sessions, and also may not want to be scrunched up or swaddled. We always receive calls after a baby has been born, and Moms are panicked because they did not pre-schedule their baby’s newborn session weeks in advance.
Normally leave room in our calendars for these last minute sessions. Our studio believes that it is very important to have your newborn’s photographed even if they are older than the recommended time frame of 7-12 days old. Older babies will need to be handled differently and accommodations made for extra feedings during the session. We allow extra time to capture awake babies during the newborn session. We love to capture Family Portraits during the newborn session.
