How sweet is 10 day old Maya???
Babies tend to do the opposite of what their parents expect at their photography session. I hear “I’m afraid he’s not going to sleep for you, this is his ‘awake time'”. And then he sleeps like a dream. So when Maya’s mother came in and said “She’s going to be so easy- all she does is sleep!”. I thought “Uh-oh”! Perhaps it’s because a baby who is very well rested becomes aware and interested in my studio- new place, sights, sounds smells. But a tired newborn who doesn’t sleep as much gets lulled into dreamland by the warmth and comfort of the studio. I don’t know for sure, this is just a trend I’ve noticed recently.
So Maya put up a fight for awhile, but eventually slept well so I got both awake and beautiful sleepy baby images. Mom and Dad, Jenny and John, especially loved her awake photos- they show so much of her personality.
It was a pleasure to spend this time with the three of them. Jenny and I were friends in high school, so it was nice to catch up and meet her husband and brand new daughter. Enjoy every moment you two – they grow so fast! Here are some of my favourite portraits that resulted from the photography session.
Love our sweet Maya’s newborn photos! Thanks again Kelly for the great experience and capturing this special time of our little girl!
