Sometimes unexpected things happen and parents can’t make it to a Newborn session within the 2 week period. As a Redmond Newborn Photographer- and a mother myself, I am all too familiar with the unexpected things that can happen. Kamden came in to our studios after having surgery at 2 weeks old and three weeks following recovery. He’s a tough little guy, just like his brothers!
It is possible to get newborn photos done at anytime up to 6 weeks old. A good newborn photographer can photograph babies at any age and the memories from the session is what’s important.
I do shoot newborns up to three months old. However, the older the baby, the less likely he or she will look or pose like a newborn. A baby past two weeks has developed further along and their ligaments have strengthened. They may not be able to tolerate some (or even most) of the curled up newborn poses. They are more alert and less likely to sleep through pose changes, so there will be less variety of poses. Instead of swaddling, we will focus on a wrapped baby, open-eyes and parent/sibling shots.
That being said, all babies are different and I have photographed older infants with great success in the past. Some babies this age will allow me to do the typical newborn poses. There is just no guarantee that your baby will be one of those!
Kamden did well in his photoshoot and I was able to get some newborn curly poses in there. Welcome to the world, Kamden- you’re a brave little guy!
