What is the best age for a newborn photoshoot?

Updated: Aug 12


LEIDEN BASED NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER Would you like to book a newborn photoshoot but you have no idea when it is the right time to do that?

How long does your newborn baby stay "newborn"? I recommend scheduling your newborn photo session between 5 -14 days after the birth. The "best"time also depends on the baby's weight and progression. I do suggest newborns be scheduled within the first two weeks. A newborn baby is considered so until 6 weeks. As a newborn gets older the bones harden and your brand new baby is not so easy to "curl". A newborn photo session can be successfully achieved at any of these weeks with special care and preparation.


You can schedule your newborn sessions in my studio or I can also some to your home. Birth is very unpredictable and sometimes the brand new parents feels more comfortable in the warmth of their own home instead of traveling somewhere else.
