Last week I finally got to do newborn photos this sweet little girl (she took some time to make her appearance). Yes, another girl! That’s 3 in a row! Possibly more than I’ve photographed the entire rest of the year. Mom and dad were definitely NOT expecting a girl though. It was quite the surprise!
So this little one wins the award for “most awake baby.” I’ve had a handful of sessions in which I had to resort to a lifestyle session instead of a posed one … but this would be the first that the baby didn’t sleep AT ALL. Even after we switched to lifestyle she remained awake. It wasn’t until the very end of the session and I had actually packed up my stuff to go, that she fell asleep. So we plopped her down on the couch to take a few. She immediately woke up. But she still let us take the photos.
But … she was RIDICULOUSLY cute. And the house had amazingly gorgeous light. So it all worked out.
Enjoy. Especially the last photo. Extra points if you know what book he’s reading.
