I hear this a lot: "Oh no, I missed taking my baby's newborn photos because I didn't know they had to be taken when she was 2 weeks old!" There is no need to panic. I can still capture your baby's photos but we just need to wait until she is over 4 months old. At this stage they will smile, laugh, turn over, lay on their back and grab their feet, etc. If you missed the newborn stage, the baby stage is still beautiful and longer. I recommend taking the photos when baby is between 4-9 months.
Here is a perfect example of what can be accomplished with a 5-month old. She was a darling. Her momma and grandma were present to enjoy the photo session.
