Why do so many baby photographers like to photograph a sleeping baby? They’re sweet, and of COURSE I will happily take photos of your sleeping baby for you. I loved watching my own babies sleep – there’s nothing like listening to them breathe, watching how relaxed they are — I get it. (Posing a sleeping baby – hmmm, that’s probably another blog post for another time. Nothing against it, just not really my thing. Cute, very Anne Geddes, I get it… but I feel like it’s a different art form, honestly. I think of those photos as more of a still life than a way of documenting a new person who just arrived into the world… but I digress…)
So we can do sleeping shots if you’re into it, but I do think once you have those handful of photos of them sleeping, it’s great to move on and show the world who this little person is becoming!
There’s just so much more to document when babies are awake. I mean, just LOOK at this sweet girl. She was snoozing when I arrived, but she eventually woke up and had the best time for her photos.
Wait, are you sure you’re only 4 weeks old? What’s with all the gorgeous smiles?
And even when the fuss happened it was adorable.
So wonderful to meet you guys! Welcome to the world, little T. Can’t wait to see you for more photos in a few months!
