I have always heard that when photographing newborns, try to do so within the first two weeks. After that time they don't sleep as readily. Well, we followed that advice and yet little Charlotte wanted to stay awake the entire two hours we shot. But she was such a good girl so we couldn't complain. Ashley mentioned how she couldn't believe that she was still awake through all of it.

I'm still experimenting with newborn poses and trying to figure out how to form their little bodies into the many different shapes I see on other photographer's blogs. There is still progress to be made but I was pleased with how this session went. Everyone was so calm which helped me relax and focus on what I was seeing. Hope you like these pictures!
