You wouldn’t be the first parent to tell me they are worried their newborn won’t sleep during their newborn session. My recommended age for newborn sessions is 7 to 21 days old. Although, I really prefer the 14-18 day range the best. A few days before your session, I will email you a prep guide to help us have the best conditions surrounding the session. It has helpful tips like feed right before you leave the house and give your baby a bath that morning.
Parents that have tried all the tips in my prep guide usually show up with sleepy babies that really never wake up. It’s rare that I see your baby’s eyes during a newborn session. However, once in a while, I do have a baby in the recommended age whose parents followed my prep guide that still remains wide awake. That is OK! I have Plan B poses for everything I would want to do with an asleep newborn.
This little sweetie did not want to miss a thing during her session so we made a few alterations to the plan. Look at how beautiful her images are!
Please don’t let worries about your baby not sleeping keep you from booking a newborn session. I have more tricks up my sleeve to still get amazing images no matter what!
