Many photographers do not take newborns older than 10 days. I absolutely feel that there is so much to be captured with older newborns. Having a new baby can be very overwhelming and if Mom has had complications, just getting out the door can be a very hard thing to do. There are draw backs to Older Newborns like they can be very alert and wiggly and they almost never fit into any of my baskets! But, I do find ways to capture some really great moments and sometimes if all the stars align, they fall asleep. Enjoy this wonderfully happy little bundle!
