Every now and then, I have people contact me who have already had their baby and want to schedule newborn photos. While it’s helpful to contact me in your second or third trimester to pre-book (and I always give priority to pre-bookings), I’m always happy to fit last-minute bookings in too! This momma contacted me asking about photos for her baby who had been born two days prior, and asked if she could come in two days later. I was so glad to be able to accomodate her!
I secretly love photographing babies at 4 days old, but I never push it because I don’t want to freak new moms out. And sometimes it just doesn’t work if baby is jaundiced, mom is still recovering, milk hasn’t come in yet, etc. But this ended up working like a charm! This mom’s request was “lots of classic white” and it was very important to her to capture her girls just as they are, and to be able to remember this tiny and precious stage. I was thrilled to hear this and because baby E was a complete dream to photograph, I think I set a record for the amount of photos I took. 🙂 I try not to overshoot (okay, okay, it’s something I’m working on), but this beautiful family made my job way too easy. I think we wrapped up in 2.5 hours and I hadn’t even realized how many photos I had taken until I uploaded them to my computer! I feel truly fortunate to be able to capture photos for families to treasure forever. A momma can never have too many photos of her babies. 🙂 Enjoy “just a few”….
