This is the baby that got me hooked on newborn baby photography. She was less than 3 weeks old, ideally they should be between 5 & 10 days old, as they are still quite supple and used to being in odd positions in utero and they're very sleepy. This was such a wonderful experience as babies are, just so adorable and warm and they smell so good. She was just such a star, and once we got her off to sleep, she allowed us to try all sorts of things with her, as you'll see from the pics. This type of photography is great and can be done quickly, but the baby has to be asleep, if not then it's just not going to happen.
