I will take pictures whenever you like....BUT....if you want those adorable newborn pics where the baby is curled in a cute little ball....or asleep....they really need to be done within the baby's first 2 weeks....once past 2 weeks those little ones are learning to stretch those arms and legs and are just not as poseable! I do allow parents and/or siblings to jump into some of the newborn shots as well. For best quality and background choices these are scheduled at my house. However I do also offer newborn mini sessions which are done right in your hospital room with a basic white or black background. I also offer birthing photos to catch those tender moments before and after birth in the hospital...no comprimising photos of the actual birth are taken.
