I normally photograph newborn babies between 5 to 14 days of age, but every once in a while I have a mom contact me a little later. Sometimes parents start off thinking they don’t need professional newborn photos, but then it happens. Their baby starts growing right before their eyes and features start changing in a matter of days. Soon Mom and Dad start regretting not contacting a newborn photographer sooner. They don’t want to miss out on having photos of when their baby is itty bitty. And who can blame them? New babies are only tiny once and change so fast. Soon it’ll be hard to believe that they fit in those tiny newborn diapers or the outfit they came home from the hospital in.

Traditional newborn poses become more difficult after a certain age because babies like to stretch out and they tend to be more alert. This doesn’t mean we can’t capture some beautiful keepsakes of your new baby though! This handsome baby boy turned 4 weeks old the day after he visited me and he did so well during his newborn session! He started the session awake and then slept for most of the second half of his session. We were able to get the perfect combination of awake and sleepy shots!

Mom and Dad are big Atlanta Falcons fans, so they brought in a jersey and a football for their baby boy’s session. And Leo gave a big smile of approval! ♥ Looks like another Falcons fan!
