Can you still do newborn photos with an older baby? I get this question asked a lot...and the answer is yes! An older baby's newborn photography shoot done outdoors is a great way to capture the beauty and innocence of your new baby. There are lots of reasons why you may miss that initial three week window and still want the newborn "style" of images for your new baby. With the right location and lighting, we can still create stunning images that you will cherish for years to come.
This baby was 6 weeks old at the time of his shoot. Babies this age can't bend as easily and don't like to be handled as much as a 2-week-old so the posing and props I use are much more simple for these shoots. But boy, this guy aced his session and slept nearly the entire time! He woke up at the very end just in time for me to capture a few open eyed photos.
Many babies find being outdoors more comfortable than being indoors. The fresh air and sunshine can help to calm and soothe them.
If you're looking for beautiful, natural photos of your newborn, an older baby newborn style photography shoot done outdoors is still a great option. Even with simple props and posing, we can still create stunning images that you will cherish for years to come.
