The idea age for Denver newborn photography is wishing the first two weeks, but life isn’t always ideal and this sweet babe came to see me at 23 new and was a perfect sleepy newborn!
Generally speaking up to three weeks we can still capture beautifully posed newborn photos in the studio. Every baby is different, but a full tummy and a warmly heated studio and then wrapping the baby tends to work almost every time. By starting in the wrap, we can maximize the a variety of wrapped photos, it a prop, on a blanket, switching out wraps and colors. Parent photos etc. It’s the unwrapping when a lot of the older baby’s wake up so naked posed photos are always possible at three weeks. Again, every baby is different and I’ve done them before so surely they are possible.
