Drowsy, sleepy babies are ideal for newborn sessions, but it doesn’t always work out that way. And you know what? That’s ok! I always try to prepare my clients with advice on how to make sure their little one is off to slumber land when I arrive, and I’d say 90% of the time it works like a charm, but once in a while I get a little peanut that just doesn’t want to miss out on one minute of the action. It is important to keep in mind that babies don’t do what we tell them, and just know that even if she’s bright eyed the entire time the end result will still be gorgeous images of her teeny tiny baby features to remember this fleeting stage forever.
This little doll was one of those exceptions, and it’s just perfect. She just stared at me and followed me around with her big blue eyes, pretty impressive for 10 days old! So there you have it. Proof that even if baby doesn’t sleep through our session we can still get adorable, beautiful, perfect images of their first days for you to stare at and love forever.
