What’s a newborn? Generally speaking most people think of a newborn as a baby in the first month or two of life. Well here in the photography world, newborns are generally up to three weeks of age. Why is that? Why is it so different? Because most babies grow out of their super sleepy and flexible stage by two to three weeks of life. So if you are someone that loves that sweet sleepy poses like I do, it’s always a crunch to get in as soon as possible.
However, this isn’t always an option or possible for some moms. Some babies come into this world a wee bit early…or a whole bit early!! Thus they spend a good portion of their first “newborn weeks” in the NICU with those super incredible hard working nurses.
Well, that’s the story for Kash!! He came into this world completely unexpected, a whopping three months early!!! You read that right, nearly three months!! For those moms that were so anxious to capture those first newborn images, this can be devastating. But the good news for those mamas…preemie babies are still pretty darn sleepy up until their actual due date!!
When you invest in a professional newborn photographer they are sure to have some tricks up their sleeves. However, your photographer should always be upfront and honest with the possibility that the baby may not cooperate and you may have to go another route for those delicate little poses.
Kash was perfect for me 🙂 He was checking out what I was doing for the first hour or so and taking in all the new surroundings, but then with a little firm patting from grandma on the tushie and that glorious paci, he drifted right off to sleep for us. Allowing mommy to get those images she wanted of her handsome baby boy.
Here he is on his 86th day!!
