I’m just now getting around to sharing some of my favorites from this sweet girl’s newborn session here in our Pearland studio. She was as alert as any newborn I’ve ever photographed, watching my every move, for a good portion of our time together. But then, slowly, but surely – as they most all certainly do – the warmth, calm and full belly washed over her. She was curled up nice and snug in the cozy arms of my trusty newborn session assistant (aka “The Incubator”), closing one eye and then the other, between shot setups. And then boom, she was snoozing away, complete with a big sleepy smile (see shot below) that I happened to catch quickly while changing lenses.
