All curled up

6 days old - this is the ideal time to have your newborn photos done. This little girl was not yet a week old when we took her first portraits.

The reason why we ask for them so young is firstly they can still go into a nice deep sleep which makes settling and posing them much easier (and quicker) and secondly they are still able to take the shape they were in in the confined shape of the womb - all curly and compact.

This is a classic newborn pose - we call it the taco pose, once the baby is over 2 weeks old - forget tacos for you!
