I was recently contacted my a mother of a 3 week old baby girl.  She didn’t realize that newborn sessions are best booked before the baby is born and that the optimal time to photograph newborns is between 5-10 days old.  I explained that to the lovely woman on the other end of the phone line but she knew she really wanted to capture her daughter during this precious fleeting time, despite that I wouldn’t be able to get to see her for two more weeks due to my busy schedule.  I also explained to her, as I would all other inquiring parents, at 5 weeks old the baby would not likely be molded into some of the curled and propped positions you may have seen here or on other photographer’s sites.  It didn’t matter to her and that was OK by me.  In fact,  she really wanted shots of the baby awake–something I am hearing more and more.  Well, it’s no wonder why she wanted to see her baby girl’s eyes!!  They are a stunning blue, beautiful and round!  The rooms that I shot in all had the most incredible curved windows towards the front of the home.  All the way up to the master with a turret and light to die for.  These windows created the most amazing effect in her eyes.  Catch lights times 10!  It was an amazing session and I am so excited to share with you the images from our morning together.  And when the first click of the day is a smile, you know it’s gonna be a good one.  Enjoy!
