Isabelle, my daughter, was less than 2 weeks old when I took these photos, the ideal time to take newborn photos.
It's ideal because under 2 weeks old babies sleep, they sleep a lot, and when they are asleep they're often in a deep sleep, which means it's easier to place them into different positions.
I did the same thing when my son Ethan was born, in fact you can see his newborn photos in my portfolio and on the blog.
After making the room nice and warm and after getting Isabelle nice and settled I came away with these shots. Everything went smoothly and thankfully there was nothing the clean up after either, result, she was the perfect model and I love her to bits.
Expect to see more photos of Isabelle over the coming months.
