The current trend for newborn photography is baby without clothes.
I may be old fashioned but I think baby may well feel a little insecure without clothes. After all he's just been very snug inside mum's tum.
8 weeks maybe?
When babies get a little older and not so insecure it's great to do photographs with just blankets and nothing more as they are quite comfortable and happy!

You don't actually need many props. A bean bag, a white blanket or rug, some window light and you'll get some lovely pictures.
Be sure to get some, even if you only have your phone. These moments don't last long.
Here are a few tips :)
