A baby girl, her pup & her parents |Maryland Newborn Photographer

This newborn shoot wasn’t a typical “newborn” – she was 6 weeks old! Newborns are usually photographed less then 2 weeks of age, this is because shortly around that point babies begin to be more aware (and less willing to let you swaddle them, dress and undress, etc.), develop skin issues and sometimes become colicky.

With that said, I still love an older newborn. With age and this newfound curiosity we often get lots of images with babies eyes wide open! I think its best to let newborns “lead” their photoshoots. Sometimes they want to be wrapped up snug as bug, sometimes they want to be free, sometimes they want to sleep the whole time and then others they want to be wide awake. I like to let baby decide!
