Family hobbies make a great starting point for styling inspiration in a newborn shoot. Because all babies grow and develop at different rates, it is safest to plan to have their portraits taken within one week of their birth. After that, there are many changes which most babies go through that make getting a quality photo session most difficult. After the newborn stage, the next opportunity to take photos is around 6 months when the baby is sitting up, but not crawling yet.
I am open to photographing on location, or you're welcome to bring your baby to my home studio.
