Baby R. was 13 days new on the day of her photo debut. She snoozed at the beginning of the session and then decided to be pretty much awake for the rest so we got quite a few awake shots which is always nice. There are no guarantees during a newborn session if or how long the baby is going to sleep. You take what you get and you work with it. What is also important when shooting newborns is to know when to stop.
Congratulation, Erin and Joy! What a nice family you have.
