When I was pregnant and hatching the plan to quit the corporate world and focus on portrait photography full-time I thought, "How tough can it be to have a baby? They eat, sleep and poop. I'll have all the time in the world to start my baby photography business!" I soon discovered that newborns do do all of those things, but they must be cajoled to do two out of three of those things. Patience is a virtue and I have really learned to just go with the flow - the resulting photos are worth the wait!
I photographed the happiest, most peaceful baby the other day. May your weekend be as blissful!
