Maybelle contacted me several months ago before her due date to schedule a newborn session. It is recommended to contact your photographer a month or two in advance before your due date if you plan to have newborn photos done because of the unexpected arrival of your little one. The goal is to have your baby under 7 days old for the photos while they are most flexible and sleepy. You'll be amazed at how a couple weeks can transform your newborn. Babies over 2 weeks will already have more awake cycles during the day and it's more difficult to have them in certain poses. Also, your photographer will have to anticipate a date to schedule your session within a few days of notice.
Meet Naiya Layla Dominquez, who was born on August 13, 2010 weighing in at 10 lb 2 oz -- that's a whole lotta baby! At 10 lbs, Naiyah never quite looked like a newborn at birth :) Maybelle and Jean are proud parents to this perfect bundle of joy, congratulations again and enjoy your time off with your precious new baby!
