Not too Late for Newborn Photos
I admit, when families contact me, I usually suggest newborn photos within the first two weeks after birth. Baby is super sleepy and still has all of those tiny newborn details. However, I get it. Life right after having a baby is crazy (which is okay) and maybe you're not ready for newborn photos right away. Time gets away quickly, as days and nights are mixed up from lack of sleep. But it is not too late for newborn photos.
This mama reached out for me to capture her newborn baby boy who was just 2 months old. I was thrilled. This means baby is awake and just might even smile for us. Even more special, this family reminded me what a small world it is. Not only were they referred by two different families I photograph, but it turns out, my daughter went to the same school as their son!

Upon arrival at their home, I was immediately greeted by their sweet dog and even sweeter big kids. They showed me around and we picked out the perfect spot (with best light) for their session. Because we were in their home, everyone was comfortable and the kids were able to come and go as they wanted. I managed to catch them wrestling together on the big bed while I was focusing on their parents with baby brother. I couldn't help but capture those moments of fun play.
Because baby boy was 2 months old, he was awake for much of the session. The connection between everyone in this family was so beautiful. And this sweet baby even took a little cat nap while I continued to photograph him and his tiny details.
I may have overshared a little bit from this session, but I can't help it! There are too many favorites to pick from.
