Many times people ask me as a Roswell Newborn Photographer “What happens if my baby doesn’t sleep?”
My answer? We work with baby awake! If baby is awake, they will likely will only be awake for a short period of time like 15-20 minutes.
FUN FACT: Babies that are two weeks old sleep 16 hours over a 24 hour time period. Did you know?
When babies come in for a session I briefly ask some questions. I ask mama and daddy when their last feed was and how they did during the car ride over. If baby seems rather alert I will start with the wrapped portion of the session. I’ll swaddle the baby so we still get relaxed poses (rather than arms flaring all over). Other times, if the baby is awake and super relaxed and I will get some cute “mug shots” of baby which show their funny expressions.

How about those “mug shots” ? These are one of my absolute favorites to capture for parents!
Lastly, we can’t forget parent poses! Although you may not be up for it getting in the photos with your brand new baby I highly recommend it. You will 100% be so happy you did later down the road. As your Roswell newborn photographer I am sure to capture parent poses every session!
