The first session we did, this little sweetie was awake the whole time. Which was totally fine - I love eyes :) We had hoped to try some of those cute sleeping newborn shots tho, so we decided to give it another go asap. And then my whole family got sick :( There was a 2 week delay, during which time I knit a beautiful cocoon to take photos of her in - knowing that more than likely she'd be waaaaaay too big, but doing it anyway ;) Needless to say, I definitely see why photographers say you need to do these shots by 2 weeks of age. Little Miss did what any of my babies would have done - she woke up! I've always been a little skeptical of those newborn shots - none of my babes have been even remotely that sound of sleepers. Sooooooo yeah - none of those kinds of shots - and this little munchkin isn't so little anymore! Gosh they grow so fast in the first few weeks!
That would be the cocoon - which she definitely didn't fit ;) But that's ok. She's cute no matter what ;)
"Hey man - you woke me up!"
I snapped a few at the end of her sleeping - no way was I going to wake this little one again ;) Mama's arms do just fine. I think that famous rule "Don't wake a sleeping baby" is a wise one ;)
