With all of the newborn photo sessions I have been doing lately, I realized that much of the photos you see here on the website are probably not a fair representation of what goes on behind the scenes. It’s not uncommon to spend more time feeding the baby and changing diapers than actually taking photos. Mom and dad are often surprised at how unusually awake and/or hungry their little one is during the shoot. Babies will be awake when you want them to be asleep and asleep when you want them to be awake. I’m convinced there’s some strange physical law of newborn photography when in actual fact it’s just how babies are… a little unpredictable. But, in the end, it’s all worth it when you get that sleepy little grin or that look of baby love on my mom and dad’s faces. It just takes a little time and patience but there’s just nothing better!
