I always recommend scheduling your newborn shoot during your third trimester of pregnancy, but sometimes it just isn't on your radar until after your baby is born! That is okay - I never even had newborn pictures of my kids taken because I didn't even know it was a thing. So it was WAY far off my radar. But if you're pregnant, it's never too early to get your due date on my calendar. Sweet little Matthew was six weeks old and very awake! It took a long time for him to get there, but I was able to grab a bunch of shots during the few minutes he was asleep! He was so happy and cute.
