The timing of your baby’s newborn photo session impacts both the feel of your photos, and it’s so important for your photographer to capture that fleeting newborn stage and all the details that make this time so special.
The birth of your baby is a gigantic life moment. Finally, after months of waiting, you’re able to see and hold your miracle. And yet, this time is made up of so many seemingly simple details…counting fingers and toes, smoothing downy hair, and taking in every little bit of this new person that’s been entrusted to your care, while they sleep in your arms.
