If your baby is outside of that 6-15 day range when they’re still curled up like they’re in the womb, its OKAY! We can still do a session. This blog post highlights two little guys I had back to back sessions with who were both about a month old when they came in for their newborn portraits. While I do prefer the younger newborns, which is why its important to schedule your session while pregnant (and also, I really cannot guarantee availability last-minute as I end up turning away a ton of babies which I really don’t like to do!), sometimes the “older” newborns give us some really awesome images – like Landon, who actually DID froggy pose at 1 month old! Or like Princeton, who gave us potato sac with eyes WIDE OPEN (one of my all time favorite images) before falling asleep. So just remember, if you decide last minute to make the splurge on custom newborn portraits, if we can get you in, I PROMISE you’ll still have some AMAZING images and won’t regret the decision. Both these parents decided after the baby was born that they wanted to do the session and here’s what they both said –
“The entire experience was just wonderful. My wife did all her homework on finding the best baby photographer and that’s exactly what happened. Saren was Professional energetic and very easy to work with. The amount of concern she had for our son is what stood out the most to me. And while she did every step, she explained why she was doing it. We could not have asked for a better session and we will be back again!”
“Saren is absolutely amazing! The experience was more than we could have ever expected. From the photo shoot and how she handled our newborn son flawlessly to the gallery that she produced of his session, her work was just incredible!
The props available and studio were perfect and allowed for an overall incredible experience for both parents and baby! The communication with Saren after our session was just as easy and effortless as the session itself.
My husband and I would highly recommend Saren to anyone and everyone :)”
