Meet baby E!  The cold weather meant we had to delay his session a few times but, as you can see, it all worked out great in the end!  

Usually, a sleepy baby makes for the best Newborn Sessions but this little guy was just so cooperative that it didn't matter at all.  Some of his best faces came when he was wide awake.  Sometimes, things just seem to work out.

As I have said before, I absolutely love when the family gets in on the fun.  Imagine how excited I was when Mom and Grandma both wanted to take part.  What a great looking family!

He did eventually run out of steam which made for some "dreamy" shots to round out the session.

As a Newborn Photographer I have to be adaptable.  Babies can't always be sleeping, and mother nature doesn't always cooperate.  You can never completely control the circumstances of a shoot but, with persistence, and a little luck, every shoot can be amazing.   I am beyond happy with how these turned out!
