A newborn styled session for a not so new baby
A child portrait session can be done at any age. Whereas, a newborn sessions are usually done within the firsts two weeks of your little ones birth. This is typically the best time for newborn photographers to capture your little one in their new and sleepy state. As those first two weeks they don’t wriggle as much. A 3 month old photo session can be just as cute!
I know that it isn’t always possible for new parents to bring their newborn in within this two week bracket. This can be for a number of reasons, but this one in particular was due to little Jake being in hospital for the first 9 week of his life. Jake had to undergo heart operations and will be in and out of hospital due to this.
As he was 3 months old upon booking, I suggested to his Mum that a child portrait session would be more appropriate for him. I did say that I could try to do one newborn styled setup but this would depend on how Jake was that day. For these instances I do mention that it may not be possible for us to achieve those sleepy photos as they are that little bit more developed at 3 months old and sleeping starts to become a little less interesting for them. There was too much excitement happening during Jakes photo session so he was awake through his entire session. We got amazing awake portraits of him – he was a natural in front of the camera!
Here are a few portraits from his session. He loved the camera and I cannot get enough of those big beautiful eyes!!
Isn’t he a cutie?!
There are great charities out there that support families and children that have to go through these types of operations. Click here if you are interested in knowing more about a charity that is a huge support for Jake and his family.
