These are the rooms where most of his life is spent. Interesting right? When a newborn arrives the world becomes so small. The intimate spaces a few feet around where the baby is sleeping or eating or tummy timing become the entire world.
Days old. Parents, do you remember days old?
A month later, we are still very much in the newborn phase of life, but parents have got a bit more figured out. There are systems for feeding, changing and sleeping. The strange nap-time grunts and zoo like symphonics that were once alarming are now endearing. And even though everyone is sleeping a lot less, the newborn smell still lingers. 4 weeks is a bit of a sweet spot I'd say :).
To be in their space, learn a bit about their lives, witness the emotions that come with the first weeks of parenthood - what a priviledge for a photographer.
When is the best time to photograph a newborn? This little lady was nearing the 2 month mark when we met. She was awake, made lots of eye contact, smiled sometimes, and slept sometimes too. You're not always feeling up to a photo shoot in the couple weeks after the baby is born. It's ok to wait :).
