Guess what, as a professional Irving photographer, I typically let my clients know that there are two significant factors to determine the “right” time of photographing their baby and the factors are however the baby’s age and weight! It is also pertinent to mention here that the ideal time to photograph a newborn is between 7-14 days however the age and weight of the baby certainly plays the pivotal role in making the right decision.
For instance if you have a 4 pound baby then I would recommend you to wait till your little darling gains a little more weight. The ideal weight is 6 – 6.5 pounds. Needless to say that to gain this desirable weight some babies, this might mean a shoot at 10 to 12 days. As a professional Irving photographer I have also photographed twins at 4 weeks, if they are immature. But what if your twins are 8 or 9 pounds at birth? Waste no more time and book a newborn photographer at the earliest!
