I prefer to photograph your newborn within the first 7-21 days. During this time, your little one still has the “curl factor”, which simply means their arms and legs curl up easily. After that time frame, your newborn will make a big jump in growth and their arms and legs will begin to stretch out more. In addition, babies tend to sleep longer and more deeply after feedings during their first few days of life. This deep sleep allows me to wrap him/her easily into blankets or move their arms and legs around without disturbing them too much. Your baby will start to become more active and will try to look around. Don’t get me wrong, after 3 weeks you can still get gorgeous images, however, the typical newborn poses most likely won’t be possible.
