It was so nice to meet this sweet family! When they arrived at my studio and I went outside to say hello, big brother came running up and gave me a big hug! What a wonderful hello!
Baby girl didn’t want to fall asleep right away, so I started the session with her swaddled. Once she fell asleep, she was out for the rest of the session and she was a dream baby!
I know new Moms are always nervous about if their baby will sleep or not during their session (especially if they have been fussy at home). Many parents have told me stories about their first newborn session where their baby wouldn’t sleep. I try to remind parents that a baby is just that… a baby. I send my clients a prep guide ahead of time that helps put us in the best position to have a sleepy and happy baby, but ultimately a baby is unpredictable. I have plenty of patience and lots of tricks up my sleeve to help keep your baby sleep soundly throughout their session, and almost all of them do sleep their entire session!
Here are a few favorites from this sweet baby girls newborn studio session…
