I often get asked when is the best time to schedule your newborn session. There is a sweet spot between 6-10 days where it seems like they’re they most sleepy and the umbilical cord has maybe fallen off, but I’ve done them as early as 30 minutes and in the instance of these Massachusetts Newborn Photos, almost 4 weeks. My baby whispering is pretty strong. And let’s be honest, I really love snuggling babies. There’s plenty of time built into the session for babies to fall asleep, and not only don’t I mind doing it (read: LOVE IT), it’s often easier if I can get them to sleep so there’s less transition into their posed positions for the photos.
So, let me rock your baby to sleep and take some pictures! Trust me. I swear! (I come with references- meet Nathan -I snuggled him in sleepy tight!)
