Newborn E | Long Island Newborn Photographer

I’m so grateful to have a job that reconnects me with old friends. I was so thrilled to hear an old college friend was having a little girl and even more thrilled when she asked me to come photograph her! I think E was just as excited because she did not want to sleep one bit!! Apparently that hasn’t changed much, Mom told me she’s not a very good napper. She’s lucky she’s so cute!! I can’t believe she will be 1 in just a few weeks! It goes way too fast.

Long Island Baby Photographer | Shira Z. Photography

Many photographers will turn down photographing newborns if they are older than 2/3 weeks old. They are considered too old for the sleepy, curled up newborn images.  While I do recommend scheduling newborn sessions within the first 2 weeks, I will photograph any age. Mom wanted to capture this time while her third little boy was still a newborn.  I let her know that at about 5 weeks old, it would probably be difficult to get the typical newborn poses. As long as she was ok with a more lifestyle type of a session, I was happy to capture this time for her and her family.

I could have photographed this ball of mush all day he was so adorable!!!
