Sweet & Spunky

This beautiful little girl is the first girl born in her daddy’s family in TWO generations! To say that she is already loved and adored at just 12 days old would be a huge understatement!

My goal with newborn shoots is to have a sleepy, and therefore, posable, newborn. Little Claire was definitely NOT sleepy! Nor was she posable at first! Haha After about an hour of trying to get her sleepy, we decided to shoot her wide awake. I’m so glad we did! She was so great!

I thought I’d try to wrap her, so her arms wouldn’t be flailing in front of her face. Being all wrapped up was not her favorite; can you tell? 🤣 She was calm but definitely wanted at least one arm “free!” 

Such Spunk! I didn’t realize she’d even made this face…I found it while editing! haha

I then realized that I had been talking to her mom but had neglected to talk to Claire. After all, SHE was my model not mom! I apologized to her for not telling her what we were doing… and proceeded to talk to her and encourage her while she was awake. 

After our initial conversation “we” continued to chat, & I told her what a good job she was doing! She was so happy and sweet! Claire let us know when she was done with her “awake” portion of her shoot and proceeded to eat, again, and fall into a deep enough sleep to achieve these more posed pictures. She still let me know when she didn’t like a pose, however, and I respected that!

A wonderful yawn…what we’d been waiting for!

I love the awake pics and am so grateful that she was so happy during them! Each baby has their own personality and demeanor…I love getting to know each little person!

Pretty in Peach!

These little ones have come straight from heaven; when you talk to them, they look right into your soul!
