In the perfect world I get to photograph newborns between 7-12 days old. It doesn’t always work out that way, but I’ve been lucky enough to have some very cooperative older newborns like Keira. At 24 days old she was as sleepy and squishy as a brand new baby. The pearls we used as a headband are actually a necklace that her mom wore on her wedding day. I love being able to incorporate special things like that into a session to make the photos even more meaningful to a family.
