The best time for a newborn session is within 6-9 days after birth. There are circumstances when your baby may have to be photographed later (such as a longer hospital stay), but in general I want to photograph your baby as soon after birth as possible. This gives me the best chance to get those sleepy poses. After this time your baby will be more alert. Obviously, I can also do a session then, but it might be a bit different from the typical newborn session.
