It was wonderful working with this little 3 week old baby girl. I had taken photos of her older brother a couple of years ago and it is always nice to see a new sibling.
The upside of an "older" newborn that wants to stay awake is that I get more chances to cuddle and settle the baby. Before I was a photographer I was a nanny and worked with so many babies and small children. So it's my other skill you could say :-) Once she was finally asleep she was really asleep!
The best thing to do if you are pregnant and are thinking of getting photos done is to contact me before the birth. That way you won't forget so easily and I can contact you to see what stage you are at.
