Traditional newborn photography wisdom is that these sessions should take place within the first 10 days of the baby being born. That especially holds true for photographers who do more posing in a studio type of session, where the sleepier the baby, the better. However, for lifestyle newborn photography sessions like this one, it just isn't as important to rush to take portraits hours after the baby is brought home from the hospital, and this wonderful session is proof of that. Sweet baby Ada spent a week in the NICU after being born, so this family obviously needed some extra time to settle in at home before even thinking about pictures. When I came to photograph this sweet family Ada was three weeks old, and the session turned out to be a dream.
Ada was so alert and could focus her eyes on her favorite people (especially her Mama), and then sweetly drifted off to sleep towards the end of the session. I left with a full heart and this turned out to be one of my favorite lifestyle newborn sessions to date.
Here's some of my favorites from my time spent with this beautiful family.
