One of the funnest ways to show off a new baby is to do a newborn shoot. The best time to do a newborn shoot is when the baby is 5-7 days old. After 2 weeks it gets harder and harder to get them to stay asleep and pose. With full newborn shoots we start with family poses we then go to siblings if there are any, followed by mom and baby and dad and baby poses. I then let you hang out while your baby gets their turn in the spot light.
