I often get asked if we can still do “newborn” photos outside the ideal period. Newborns, by definition, includes the first 4 weeks of life. After that, they are considered infants. We can still capture some gorgeous images with infant photography.
Meet baby Kinsley! She was born on April 2nd, right in the middle of the pandemia and when all photography studios were closed in Atlanta. Anitra contacted me when Kinsley was over 2 months old and wanted to try to have some “newborn” photos. She felt she had missed out already so much. This is a common sentiment I hear from new mom’s right now, little to no visits, no baby shower, no one bringing meals.
I explained that I would attempt to capture some sleepy poses. I mentioned that I like to obtain awake shots, interacting and if we get lucky, capture a smile or two laying on their back and also doing “tummy” time. Ww were able to get some great photos of Kinsley looking at the camera.
I then wrapped baby, so we could get more posed images. Kinsley was very comfortable being swaddled that she felt asleep after a few set-ups. Mom and dad were thrilled we got so many beautiful photos of Kinsley that they will cherish a lifetime.
Please contact me to document this fleeting moments and have them last forever in these beautiful newborn photos. Remember, the ideal time to book is a few months before baby is born to assure availability. But if your baby is already an infant, contact me to learn more about infant photography in Atlanta.
