p.1 #1 · Newborn session (why no sleep)


So this was the 2nd newborn session where the little one would just not sleep. newborn was up since 7am, I arrived at the home @ 9:30am. Advised mom via email and phone convos to fed the little one as close to 9:30am as possible to make sure they had a full tummy which she did but still this little guy did not want to sleep. Mom was a little sad she didn't get the posed pictures such as baby with head on arms, or head on chin etc. we tried posing with the little one awake but they were just not having tummy time at all while awake. Oh well just roll with the punches and work with the baby instead of against it.

I still think we got some great shots, I switched gears to more lifestyle instead of posed proppy style. Changed up my processing a little bit with this set as well so will see what the feedback says. I usually do B&Ws a tad more low contrast but decided to change it up with this set as well. I chose B&W for a majority of them because the lighting in the nursery created a very nice shadow detail and depth that I just did not see while in color. I made the choice to go B&W and was happy with that decision.

On to the pictures.

I think you have some nice shots and I'm sure the family is very happy. I have very little luck with sleeping newborns as well. Parents are always surprised, saying the baby is constantly sleeping, and they timed the feeding, turned up the temp, and still... a wide awake baby. So I feel for ya.

Thanks everyone, it was definitely a different more challenging shot at the time but the more I reflect back, the more i think to myself that it really wasn't as difficult as I made it out to be.

I look forward to being challenged at future sessions to keep me on my toes.
