There is no better time to get great photos of your newborn than in the first 10 days. Of course babies change so fast that capturing the first few days is a small window that needs to be preserved, but also newborns sleep a ton. Sleeping babies aren't crying babies and are easier to pose. Bennet was awake most of this shoot but co-operated most of the 45 minute shoot. I think is adorable and I am glad I was able to take these pictures.
