Hugo was 3.5 months old at his session. Now, if you’ve done your research, you’ll notice that’s a lot older than the recommended age for a newborn session. The reason 2 weeks is the recommended age for a newborn shoot is because babies are generally more sleepy and curled up at this age making them easier to pose. But in saying this, it is just a guideline. I made sure to advise Hugo’s mum that we may not be able to achieve those sleepy curled up shots as he might not sleep and because he is much stronger and stretchier at his age. The plus side to leaving a newborn session until this age is all the smiles and personality that you can capture! Anyway, despite his age, Hugo did sleep for us and I was able to capture a mix of sleepy and awake shots. Win, win!
