6 Week Old Newborn | Manchester, CT

The newborn stage is so precious for many reasons, and it’s a big reason why we recommend contacting us in your 2nd trimester to plan for your upcoming due date before baby arrives. We aim to schedule your newborn photography session around 10-14 days old so you have some time to settle at home, but baby is still pretty sleepy and flexible. If you’re not able to contact us before then, it’s ok! Reach out anyway – we are not afraid of working with “older” newborns and will do whatever we can to give you sweet photos up until your baby is about 6 weeks old. After that time, it’s usually better to wait for the infant milestone closer to 3 months. Of course, we will do whatever you are hoping for with our recommendations in mind. I was so happy to be contacted by this family to photograph their 6-week-old newborn baby boy. He was still little and pretty sleepy (with some snuggles!), and they were hoping to get some beautiful photos of him before he was too alert. He definitely couldn’t wait to check out my studio and see what everything is about! But with lots of rocking and baby whispering (our specialty of course!), he drifted off to sleep so we could get these sweet photos. His Dad is an aerospace engineer as well and had asked for something with airplanes. I just loved the photos we put together! The family photos together were SO sweet and natural, and I just love the heirloom album and corresponding digital files that we put together for them in the end! Check out some of their many favorites below, and don’t forget to contact us if you or someone you know is expecting! These make great baby shower gifts, too!
