Delayed Newborn Photographs | Sandy Springs

Welcome Warren!

It was at the end of Abbye and Art’s five year anniversary photo session that they talked about trying for a baby. That life was calming down post wedding and careers felt more solid. They owned their own home. Then at their ordering appointment two weeks later, Abbye shared they were expecting and would want newborn photographs. But no one imagined this sweet boy would arrive early. Making it majorly delayed newborn photographs in their home after a stay in the NICU.

When to do newborn photographs

While it’s ideal to do newborn photographs in the first 7 to 10 days after these babies are born, it doesn’t always work out that way. And that’s fine. Sometimes these kiddos are born early or with challenges that need more medical attention than parents can give at home. Or life happens and sleep deprivation is worse than you’d imagine. Days become weeks. Which is fine, it happens. Parenthood can be all about survival. In many stages, from newborns to toddlerhood to tweens to teens and beyond.

It’s okay to have delayed newborn photographs. Life happens.

So whether you’re in the seven to ten day range or beyond, I’m happy making delayed newborn photographs if that’s where you are when you reach out. Because I’m all about documenting the expansion of love in your family when you bring the new baby home. And not about morphing anyone into crazy poses that are super cute, but not necessarily the most normal or easy to achieve. A newborn is a gift. And this one was wrapped in a super sweet blue bow.
