Newborn photos in Midtown Manhattan

I love, love, loved my session with this sweet family of 3 in Midtown Manhattan. For one thing, this sweet little 8 week old was about as serene as newborn babies come (check out another session I did with an easy going baby here). I put it down to his sweet loving nature, which he no doubt inherited from his sweet and easygoing parents. But I also think waiting to have  newborn photos until your babe is a few weeks older also has something to do with it. Some parents are (understandably) worried that they will miss the newborn days, but in the scheme of things, 8 weeks is soo little. And I think a big bonus is you definitely get great shots of your babe looking at the camera. You'll see in some of the images below, this little cutie couldn't stop looking at my camera. My bond with his parents was instant too - we chatted about everything from how long we'd been in NYC to where life may take us next. Suffice to say, I very much hope we're both in the same place the next time these parents want to document their sweet boy growing up
