Harford County Baby Photographer, Jodie Otte, has specialized in photographing newborn babies for over 12 years.
There is always some question as to what exactly is a newborn versus baby. Most photographers consider babies anything from 3 weeks of age and up until they can walk. Some photographers will not photograph a baby that is over the age of two weeks, as they want to only photograph a baby within the first 10 days if possible. Jodie has photographed babies up to age 8 weeks and still managed to get beautiful “curled” images from them. She will never turn away a baby based on age.
The following images were not typically called newborns; however, they were still worked with as newborns, and she produced gorgeous images that still have the feel of newborn.
This baby curled in the saddle was six weeks old. (Remember, this is a PhotoShop composite, and baby was never placed in a dangerous situation).
The baby below that is with her older sister is around 8-10 weeks old. Again, while not a typical newborn, beautiful images can be accomplished at any age.
