“You’ll know,” I said to her mama, when we were planning her newborn session, “within the first couple of days after her birth, you’ll know if she’s a sleepy baby, or a wakeful one.” And it’s true. We plan our newborn sessions between 5 and 10 days after a baby’s birth, so we can get the most sleepy, bendable, posable, content babies as possible. Some babies, like sweet Anastasia, just don’t love to sleep! She snoozed for maybe five minutes during her whole session, and was fairly content to lay down with her feet in the air and make silly baby faces at the camera. I don’t think I’ve ever met such a wide-awake little girl!
Luckily, we know how to photograph wakeful babes, too! Even at eight days old, Ana is fascinated by her parents — she thinks they are the most interesting, best people in her world. Luckily, they think she’s pretty awesome, too (as do we)!
