Yep. This little guy named Will certainly was willful. While his momma said he sleeps 23 out of 24 hours a day, he decided that the hour he would stay up would be when I arrived. 🙂 For my newborn shoots I like deep sleepers. This way I can mold and position them any which way I like and in the process my little balls of dough will remain in deep slumber. Sometimes this happens and sometimes it doesn’t and you just have to roll with it–no pun intended. We did finally manage to get him to sleep but not enough for me to try more more “daring” hanging shots and not enough for “the pose”–hands under chin, head propped up. Regardless I think I got some good shots for this family and I hope they like them. And I must add that their daughter was an absolute doll! OMG! What a personality–so vivacious and personable, not to mention absolutely adorable. I could have photographed her all day but it was time for a nap when I arrived so I “stole” a few photos and off to bed she went. First some shots of the Little Miss and then the delicious newborn!
