Quite often I speak to parents who have just missed the "newborn" stage for a photography session. This can be for many reasons, sometimes things do not quite go to plan and they are just not ready to go out to a photography session with their brand new baby at 1 week old, sometimes they have simply chosen to wait a little longer.
I photograph babies between 6 weeks and 5 months old (pre sitting) in a very similar way to newborns here at my beautiful baby photography studio in Poole, Dorset.
This beautiful little one was 6 weeks old when he came to see me recently.
For this particular session, the parents opted for a "newborn" package so they could have a longer session and we got a beautiful selection of awake and sleepy images, much like we would for a younger newborn photography session.
If your baby is still tiny and very young we always discuss your options before we book your session in so you can choose which type of session is right for you.
If your baby is older, you will get slightly different images , you can see lots more examples on my website or you might like to read another recent blog post about a 4 month old baby photography session.
At 6 weeks old baby's are usually a lot more alert and their eyes are open for longer during the day.
We got the perfect combination of wide awake and sleepy photos during his session.
