Capturing Timeless Moments: Newborn Photography Beyond the First Month

Feb 9, 2024 | Newborn, Portraits, Uncategorized

Are you expecting a baby or already have a little one who’s passed the “newborn” stage? You might have heard the traditional advice that newborn photography is best done within the first 21 days or month of birth. But let me debunk that myth for you. At Level 11 Photography, we believe that every stage of your baby’s growth is worth capturing, even beyond the so-called “newborn” period.

Sure, babies within their first few weeks tend to curl up beautifully, sleep soundly, and are more likely to cooperate during a photoshoot. But that doesn’t mean older babies can’t shine in front of the camera. In fact, babies over a month old bring a whole new level of charm and personality to their portraits.

While it’s true that older babies may not curl up as easily or sleep through the session, they often compensate with their alertness and occasional heart-melting smiles. These little ones are more aware of their surroundings, making for some wonderfully engaging and expressive photographs.

That’s why we’ve expanded our services to include sessions for babies up to three months old. Because, honestly, why limit ourselves to an arbitrary age range? Every baby is unique, and every stage of their development is precious. We believe in capturing those fleeting moments, whether your baby is a few days old or a few months young.

Life gets busy, and sometimes things don’t go according to plan. We understand that booking a photoshoot might not be at the top of your to-do list amidst all the excitement and adjustments of welcoming a new family member. But rest assured, it’s never too late to create timeless memories.

If you’re hesitating because you think it’s too late for newborn photography, think again. Our studio is ready to welcome older babies with open arms and camera lenses. Just take a look at the stunning images we’ve captured of babies beyond the traditional “newborn” phase. Their smiles, their curious gazes, their adorable little features – they’re all waiting to be preserved in photographs that you’ll treasure for a lifetime.

So, if you’re ready to capture the beauty of your growing baby, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Give us a call today, and let’s schedule a session to celebrate your little one, no matter their age. Because when it comes to newborn photography, every moment is worth cherishing, and every baby deserves to be in the spotlight.
