Minneapolis Newborn Photographer
Every baby is different. I go into every session not knowing exactly how easy or tough a babe will be to work with. Will they prefer to be shushed to sleep, be bounced side to side, or maybe they prefer to have their bottom patted while I rock them. Within a few minutes I can typically pin point what baby will be soothed by. Even when there’s a stretch of awake time, and there almost always is, I know that at some point they will sleep for me. There is always an exception though…
Going into today’s newborn session with Brody, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Let me share a little story with you. A story about the one and only time I had to cut a newborn session short. I can’t even believe I’m admitting I had to do that, but I’m keepin’ real! Brody’s big brother Easton was not interested in sleeping for me. He was not interested in anything but cuddling with his mama. I can work with an awake and calm baby. Awake and fussy/crying… no dice. I managed maybe 15 images from the few set-ups I was able to do.
I really had to remind myself what I tell all my clients; every baby is different. Brody proved this to be true. He had the typical awake time at the beginning of the session, but after a second bottle fell right asleep. Oh my, what a great sleeper. He was a bit particular about which poses he liked, but I figured it out and did my best to keep him happy. The result, and over abundance of gorgeous newborn photos. I cannot wait to share the rest of this session, but for now here’s a peek…
