The prons and cons of older babies photography

September 28, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Newborn photography is typically done withing first 2 weeks maximum. There are a few very good reasons for that.

The baby is easy to curl up in the womb shape and pretty much any shape

Baby sleeps long periods

Colics haven't flared up yet

Baby acne is not yet around

Baby hasn't discovered stretching yet

All of the above turns the other way around with older babies photos and respectively it gets almost impossible to achieve the sweet curly poses. Not all is lost though as here comes the opportunity for a lifestyle photo session where baby is frankly left to do how they feel and I am capturing the best faces and poses I can get. An example below.

I am sharing here a beautiful photo collage of a young 4 weeks old lady who was a nightmare to put to sleep and I could only change her in 2 set ups with small variations in the baby outfit but look at that smiles.  Mum and dad just asked me to print these baby photos in 60x40" for their bedroom.

The cons are big but often I get expressions which are only existing for a brink of an eye.

Newborn photo sessions are held in my home studio in New Eltham, Gleenwich London. For lifestyle session please contact me to arrange

 

What are your pros and cons photographing newborn and older babies?
