But... of course I have a few exceptions to my time off policy... and a beautiful newborn is one of them. This darling little girl is a Christmas baby - she is 9 days old today and I had a great time with her and her parents earlier today working on these portraits. (It seems like just yesterday that I did their wedding portraits!)
She didn't sleep for a super long time, but fortunately she slept deeply and I was able to do a lot of fun things with her while she slept. She hates being on her tummy when awake, so I was happy that she didn't notice it while sleeping.
I made this little bluebird hat earlier this fall. So sweet. I have a nest that I keep meaning to use with it, but she woke up (with a shout) and we were done before the nest came out.
And she was really calm for a lot of awake portraits too. That's pretty unusual for me with newborns, so I enjoyed it!
I have a bunch more newborn sessions, along with some info on my baby plan options, on this blog page - check it out!
I offer four different options for baby photography collections. If you are interested for yourself, or if you have a friend or family member you might like to gift a collection to, I have an online magazine with more information that you might like to see. You can send me your email address below and I will email you a link right away.
