Newborn photos are best done within the first 8-10 days of life, this is the magic number, any newborn photographer will tell you this. Babies are still squishy and sleepy, which is ideal for posing them, they just sort of fall into poses. As the babes reach the two week old time frame, they are more awake, they realize they can stretch, so they are not as squishy. I find 8 days to be a good day for me, I’ve had the most luck ** knock on wood**. That being said, it’s not entirely impossible to get sleepy poses past that stage, harder, yes, maybe a little more stressful, yes, but not impossible.
Miss Juliette proves this point, here she is at just about 4 weeks old, rocking her newborn photographs. We got some sleepy poses, some yawns, and lots of stretches! She did so great! Can you even take that hair!! Is it not gorgeous!! I didn’t want to put any hats on her that would cover those gorgeous locks!
