Yesterday was one of the sweetest, craziest newborn sessions I have had 🙂 Why? Well, I had a precious, happy, smiley 11 day old baby girl prove me WRONG! <3 One of the first things that I ask clients is what specific image requests they have, just to make sure that we are on the same page and are a good fit. So Baby C’s mama said that she would love to have a shot of her daughter smiling (like she saw on my website) and with her eyes open (also on my website). I felt a little bad telling her that the likelihood that we’d get BOTH was pretty much slim to none because babies this young really only smile in their sleep, so it wasn’t something I could prompt…I would just have to try and catch one IF Baby C decided to do it on her own. Since smiles happens while newborns are asleep, she wouldn’t have their eyes open either. WELL. At the very end of her session, Baby C pulled out a wild card on me 🙂 I had swaddled her and was trying to get a photo of her with her eyes open but instead she went into this sleepy/wake stage where she was dreaming (and smiling!) but also flashing her eyes open when we called out to her. She was so expressive that I couldn’t help but create a storyboard preview of the series of faces she was making…little smiles, and smirks, and just happy newborn dreams 🙂 It was so awesome and I’m SO happy that her mama got her wish <3 Here are a some sneak photos from our time together. Enjoy!
