When Is the Right Time to Schedule Newborn Pictures?, West New York, New Jersey

Congratulations on your brand new bundle of joy! While it might feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day to enjoy your little one, it’s crucial to make room on your crowded calendar for newborn pictures with a skilled photographer. Diego Molina Photography is the premier portrait photography studio in New York and Northern New Jersey. Specializing in family portraits, weddings, boudoir photography, and newborn pictures, Diego captures special moments with a trained, artistic eye. Here, he offers some advice on the best time to schedule those once-in-a-lifetime baby photos. 

The First Two Weeks

newborn picturesTry to schedule newborn pictures within the first two weeks of your baby’s life. Infants of this age tend to sleep a lot, which makes them docile, easy to position, and unlikely to cry—even when they’re not in their mother's arms. Moreover, babies under two weeks old still have the "newborn" look. They tend to curl up, ball their fists, and hold their hands near their face. This phase will be over before you know it, so don’t miss out on a chance to preserve your little one at their smallest! Despite the urgency of the period, it is completely understandable if you are unable or unwilling to schedule portrait photography during this time.

Older Newborns

Baby pictures of older newborns are more difficult to capture, since babies of this age tend to fuss and stretch out instead of curling up. However, when babies are a month or two old, you might say they are even more adorable than they were at birth! Older newborns have often gained weight, developed chubby arms, bellies, and cheeks, and started to look like one or both of their parents.

While both options have their advantages, there is no wrong time to schedule newborn pictures. Whenever you’re ready, Diego Molina Photography is happy to capture this fleeting phase in time.
