Most of the babies that come to my studio for newborn portraits are in their second week of life. However, if you’ve missed that window and still want photos of your new baby I’d encourage you to get in touch with me anyway. It is still possible to get beautiful newborn portraits of your older baby, even up to a month old or a bit older. As a newborn photographer I’m experienced working with older newborns and keeping them happy and sleepy for those sweet photographs.

Aneal’s mom contacted me when he was almost a month old and we did his newborn photos a few days later. He LOVED being all wrapped up and snuggled, and fell into a nice sleep.

We started his session with a cute little deer bonnet, and he just looked so adorable in it!

To help Aneal fall into a really nice, deep sleep I kept him wrapped for a bit longer. We switched out his little deer hat for a bear bonnet in a few shots, then used some blues, grays and cream which looked so perfect on him. Aneal really liked having his little hands up by his face.

Towards the end of our time together Aneal woke up and let me get some super cute photos with his eyes open. Then, at the very end as I was talking to him he gave me his first real smile! It was such a special moment.

It doesn’t feel like it’s been very long since Leah came in for her newborn photos. Somehow though,  Miss Leah has grown up into a big girl. She came in a couple of weeks ago for her six month baby photos.

Leah’s mom let me know that she looks really cute in black, gold and cream so we used those colors for some of her photos. I’m told she’s quite the smiley little girl at home but she made her mom, dad and I work for it in the studio. We managed some super cute smiles, but I wonder what she was thinking during our crazy antics to get them.

A mint green romper and a floral backdrop was perfect for Leah’s second setup.

Mom and dad’s special request for Leah’s six month baby photos was a photograph of her in a Kansas City jersey. Her daddy is a big fan, and so this one was super special for them.

Sweet little Leah is growing up quickly, like all babies seem to do. It’s an absolute pleasure to get to watch it happen!
