As a professional newborn photographer in the Charlotte, NC area, I get all the time - When is the BEST time for newborn photographs?
And the answer is ANYTIME under 8 weeks is pretty perfect for newborn-baby portraits (at least in my book!)
Newborn photography has evolved quite a bit over the years, and thankfully I think we are seeing a shift BACK to just gorgeous clean images of your family, a very film-inspired look. And while I do love those REALLY POSED newborn photographs (think Anne Getty's) they just don't seem very "baby" to me. They seem like - WOW that's a GREAT photographer - and she is a great photographer! But those are something I'm necessarily going to want to hang on my wall or look at in 30 years.
What I love about newborn and family portraits that I create - they are timeless. I really believe you are going to LOVE your photos 30 years from now, that you'l be able to look back and see how wonderful and fleeting this little time was. And that's really want I'm aiming to create: a gorgeous, stress-free portrait session, where you can just focus on loving your little family and your images.
Speaking of a GORGEOUS Charlotte, NC newborn session! I adore this little guy Wilkes and GUESS WHAT - he's 7 weeks old here! Sometimes babies sleep a little less at this age, but we were still able to get some really sweet sleepy images for his parents, and look at his long eyelashes. Just amazing to me how they come out so perfect, little hand-wrinkles and everything!
