Just a little, every now & then about what I do and what I'm thinking about.
I mainly take on newborn photography work! I love it - I'm the baby whisperer...mostly. My aim for a newborn sitter is between 4-10 days old, parents think this may be too soon but I'll let you know why it's best before baby is in the 3 week old category. Newborns - real new newborns sleep a lot! This overriding sleepiness makes it that much easier to pose & position baby without a huge fuss between prop settings.
It is also phenomenal just how quickly they grow. They honestly can pack on the pounds and gain inches in days - so each week there is a complete change in baby. So to get true newborn images that capture all the newness - the sooner the better.
Baby photo's can definitely be still managed after the 1st month but you may get a different feel than truly newborn images. Still adorable and still your baby, so I'm always happy to go with what is the best choice for each individual situation.
