On my website it says that Newborn portraits are photographed with in the first 10 days after birth, in fact most photographers says this as well. Because of this people often think that after 10 days you just can't get pictures of a baby before 3 months. This Little fella was just about a month old for his session and he did great! There are just little differences between under and over 10 days old. After they are closer to a month your not going to get the curled up sleeping shots every time, some babies will, but it's not an easy thing to make happen. Personally I think you can still get great shots of an older newborn. Once they hit the 2 week mark the babies start to realize just how much room they really do have, they stretch out into it, and become more alert. This little guy was bright eyed and bushy tailed for his entire session, and Man, did he have some adorable little expressions going on! He responded really well to voices, especially mom's, he followed me and the camera with his eyes and was just plain content for almost the entire session, till it was time to eat. He really did fantastic and was so full of personality already!
