I had a couple of questions for the great newborn photographers here.
1. The concensus seems to be try and get newborn shoots within the first 7-10 days. What do you do if the umbilical cord hasn't fallen off when the shoot is scheduled?
2. Some babies are born with a lot of hair... and not always on the head. How do you shoot and/or process babies that still have their "fur"?
We're expecting our first child and wanted to be prepared in case either of these issues come up. Of course, I will have more than one opportunity to take pictures, but the fewer "sessions" we have to do to get some decent shots the better.
