New parents often ask me what is the best age for baby photos for their baby. As a photographer specialized in childbirth and baby, I can tell you there are different ways of deciding over a baby photo shoot according to your baby’s age. In fact, it all depends on your wishes but I can only advise you on making multiple baby photo shoots following baby’s growth to see how much your baby has grown during the first years of life. In this post, I will explain you what are the various baby photo shoots according to your baby’s age so that you can decide, by yourself, what is the best age for baby photos.
For a newborn photo session, the best is to book my services before your term so that you do not have any bad surprise after his/her birth as my schedule gets quickly full. Unfortunately, we sometimes forget about booking a baby photographer as there are so many things coming together around the term date. The problem is, to have the most relaxing newbonr photoshoot, it has to take place with a baby between 4 and 10 days old. After 15 days, your baby will be less curly and more importantly more active and less sleepy, which make give us a harder time to get similar poses to those that you can find in my newborn photographer portfolio. Having that in mind, you can still book a baby photosession but you have to stay conscious about those differencies. Therefore, if you are pregnant, do not hesitate to contact me before your term so that we can calmly organize the newborn photo session.
