I used to shy away from photographing babies that have surpassed the optimal “newborn” age. If I’m being honest, I was terrified of these squirmy awake little creatures. I’ve learned through time and experience though that there is nothing to fear! With the proper preparation and management of expectations, on both my part and the parents, a three week old session can turn out just as beautifully as one shot at seven days. Miss Gabriella was a perfect example of this! At three and a half weeks old she was squirmy, sleepy, smiley, and absolutely perfect!!
