Timeless Package: Older Newborn Session
If you feel like you’ve missed the boat because your baby is now 2 weeks old and every photographer is fully booked and can’t fit you in, it’s quite okay. You can still get gorgeous photos of your wide awake older baby.
This sweetheart was 9 weeks old and I must admit, I have been loving the older newborn age group lately. Look at all those expressions and REAL smiles 🙂
Due to Covid lockdowns, parents wishing to wait until the first set of vaccinations, or new Mums and Dads realizing they have yet to get their new baby professionally photographed, I get quite a few requests for older newborns and I love them so much!
Meet my newest package… the Timeless session. Very similar style to my short and sweet sessions but with extended time (1.5 hours) to get a full gallery and variety of natural, timeless and unposed images. These sessions focus more on family connections surrounding baby and are so ideal for the older baby or the wide awake newborn that prefers to be held by Mum or Dad rather than posed on their own. There is no pressure to get baby asleep, baby is happy because they get lots of cuddles from parents too. You would receive more variety of family/sibling photos than you would with my Simple and Classic newborn sessions which focuses predominantly on solo baby shots and and only 1 to 2 posed family shots, therefore generally more images in a gallery.
Babies are dressed in a traditional onsie/romper (I have various sizes) and/or wrapped. The gallery is filled with timeless and natural poses that will never age. Clean, bright and crisp photos you can treasure for a lifetime.
What should I wear for these sessions?
As this particular style is very light and airy it is recommended to wear whites/lights. I do understand not everyone likes, or even has light colours in their wardrobe so if you prefer darker colours, wear black. The most important advice I can give regarding clothing is to keep clothing as plain as possible. This keeps the attention on baby and family, not on what you are wearing
Can I include a few sleeping posed shots of baby in this package too?
It is possible but only if baby naturally falls asleep within the sessions time frame. With my other packages, we can spend a good chunk of time getting baby sleepy and ready for poses. This Timeless session is more lifestyle/family focused with an awake baby and we only stop for cuddles if baby is upset. If bub falls asleep, and time allows, then I am more than happy to include a sleepy shot or two at the end.
