Newborns are so sweet and cuddly and sleepy...usually. Every so often I run into a baby who just is not a sound sleeper. For these light sleepers, we do the best we can to keep the baby happy and still get fantastic shots. Sometimes that means an hour of rocking and shushing. Sometimes that means a nice long breastfeeding session after which they finally relax and are just out for the remainder of the session as we move from pose to pose. And sometimes that means that the little one just wants mom and isn't interested in anything else so I come back for a second session to make sure that mom and dad have a good selection to choose from. So was the case with this little princess from Shaker Heights. I traveled to my client's home and started off the session getting some great shots of her big brother and dad in the backyard while mom and baby finished getting ready. Next we took some beautiful family shots outdoors. But when it was time to move indoors and give baby girl her time in front of the camera on her own, she was not interested. I got what I could and mom and I set up a second session for the following week. They grow so fast and these teeny tiny brand new days are numbered so I wanted to make sure we captured as many as we could. Our second session didn't go much better than the first as she just wanted to cuddle with mom and eat...who can blame her...but between the two we got some wonderful images of those first days at home.
