I just love a challenge! Charming little Charlie was a wide awake, and not happy about it young lady. She was just fighting her nap and just not to happy with me when I would move her, reposition her, or just generally be by her, At first...
Soon into our session I learned that little miss loved to be swaddled, she really calmed down, and settled in for some wrapped and less posed shots. Her momma was so awesome, she was right there the entire session ensuring babies safety and able to lend me a helping hand to shush, comfort, and sooth baby.
To provide a variety of looks with out upsetting baby, I chose to use a variety of wraps and blankets to mix it up. Because she was so sensitive to my moving her I opted to try and keep her asleep and not push for the super posed shots. Sometimes you just have to take what the baby gives you. Towards the end of the session I got a little brave and flipped her over onto her belly. She wasn't having the pose I was aiming for but she did flash me a brief smile and I was lucky enough to catch it.
This session was a special in home session using mostly natural light from the front window. Working in my clients home is a great service I offer to ease the burden of a new family. Having a new baby is hard work, it exhausting and exciting all rolled into one. By shooting newborn sessions in your home I am able to reduce the stress of getting ready and out of the house with a little one. Please contact me to discuss or schedule your in home newborn session.
Here are a few shots from this little ladies session, enjoy.
