NEWBORNS - THE '10 DAY RULE'
Why is newborn photography captured within such a small time frame?
A newborn has nearly 300 bones & cartilage pieces, which after the 10-14days mark, start to fuse together into calcified bone, which makes it much harder for them to return to that in-the-womb position they’ve been in for the last 9 months.
That being said, every baby is different, and it depends on their individual growth speed rather than a widely spread “rule” whether or not they are safely able to participate in a true newborn session.
NEWBORNS - IS THERE REALLY A DIFFERENCE?
Yes, there is a difference between images created from 2 days new, 2 weeks new, and 2 months new. However, none is BETTER than the others. It's just DIFFERENT. Precious memories will be captured at each point.
It really is your choice; don't feel pressured to schedule a shoot when you don't feel ready.
