Studio Baby Photos
While the majority of my newborn Simple sessions are done within baby’s first few weeks of life, it doesn’t stop me from photographing a similar style with the older babies too.
I generally stop photographing babies in the Simple session style at 3 months. Older babies have a much harder time falling asleep and tend to wake up at the slightest touch. But with gentle handling, a spare bottle of milk or additional breastfeed, very often baby is able to fall asleep for at the very least, a few short minutes to allow me to get a sleepy pose or two.
If you think you have missed the mark on a newborn photoshoot, but really want to try, and your baby is over 3 months, why not just give my Simple sessions a go. The longer session time means we can have a chance for baby to have a quick nap. It doesn’t always work, but then again, I have had a brand new newborn who refused sleep too.
It is best for older babies to have their session done in my studio. I am set up for a variety of backgrounds, so you can walk away with a decent variety of images. And dont forget to include siblings and parents too!
This little chunky monkey was 4 months old and I was able to capture the best of both worlds during his Simple session. A wide-awake, happy, attentive, smiley baby and a couple of sleepy shots! All in the same time it takes to photograph a new newborn too.
