When You’ve Missed the Window for Newborn Portraits – Burlington Baby Photographer

It happens… Life is a blur before and after baby is born and those “first two weeks” go by so quickly. Pretty soon you’ve realized that you really want to capture your new baby as young as possible and panic sets in. While we won’t be able to get those sleepy/posey photos you see all over Pinterest, we can still capture your baby as they are and if I know you were hoping to get newborn-like images I’ll swaddle up baby for a little bit and see what we can get! The wonderful thing about older babies is they are starting to explore the world around them and we end up with some adorable expressions and great eye contact with the camera. This little boy was 3 months old for his photos. Mama messaged me when he was about one month but I didn’t have any immediate availability. I’m so happy they decided to book anyway and wait for a spot. The were the sweetest and most easy going family and we captured darling photos of baby C. We also got a few of those wrapped up newborn-like photos even at 3 months old which generally is the oldest age that baby will let me still swaddle them for a bit.

If you’re looking to capture your baby and they are a bit older than the newborn age, be sure to contact me and we can discuss details and dates. 🙂
