Little Elliot was a little older than most newborns I photograph at about 5 weeks old. The majority of newborn babies you see on my site are photographed at 2 weeks or younger, that’s when they’ll stay asleep for a good period of time. However 5 weeks can also be a good age. Although they’re definitely not as sleepy, you do get some more personality infused in the photos, open eyes, yawns, stretching. They truly change SO much in the first six weeks that photos will be dramatically different depending on when you book. Elliot was definitely not going to sleep for me so instead we concentrated on the wonderful expressions he was making at this young age.
