I used to stress about about newborn sessions. Would the baby sleep? Would the baby not sleep? It was tough to get some of these little guys to sleep so I could pose them. It was stressful for the new moms and dads, stressful for me, and just ultimately hasn't turned out to be my style. Don't get me wrong...I LOVE some of these images I see of tiny little ones in sweet sleeping poses, but as I develop my own style I'm realizing that the things that speak to me in images are interactions between family members.
It's been so fun to just hang out with new parents and families and just do whatever the baby, or in some cases, the older siblings want to do! When I met this sweet family at their home on a Saturday morning a couple of weeks ago, we let big sister run the show! We all know that two year olds are in charge anyway! :) I even got a few minutes of sleepy baby time for some solo shots of the newest edition to their family, Jett!
