Oh Diego! This handsome boy came in for his newborn pictures with his beautiful mom. Diego was an absolute dream baby to work with. He was very sleepy when he came in. I like to get started right away with the baby if they come into the studio asleep. I did not hesitate with this little guy and started to pose him right away. He did not seem to mind and stayed asleep except when he needed to eat. He would then fall right back asleep.
Diego had the most beautiful skin and lots of dark hair. His mother was also very beautiful so I can see where he got his dreamy skin from!
Diego was 15 days old when he came in for his pictures. I am often asked how old a baby should be when capturing newborn photos. There is not a magic age. Each baby is very different. The preferred time is anywhere from five days to 21 days old. I have some babies sleep completely through their session even when they are a month old and some babies that are wide awake for their entire session, no matter how warm I make the studio or how often mom feeds them. I do my very best to get those amazing sleepy poses. Sometimes it does not work out and we end up with bright eyed baby photos which are still equally as beautiful. Fortunately for me on this day, Diego was very cooperative and slept through his entire session.
