I have so many mama's that see my work and ask ... what if my baby doesn't sleep? It's a legit worry. Shhhh most time mama we get that sleepy smile and if not we fake it and no one knows any different ;)
All of my clients receive a prep guide. It's my secret recipe for sleepy babies. The step help baby snooze longer which not only allows us to capture those sleepy images but also keeps session times shorter...dad's appreciate that :)
BUT ... if for some reason baby is more curious than what we plan for mam don't worry we get those shots! Sometimes "eyes wide open" is the best shot you can have!
Plus wraps and snuggles always help keep baby content as well, even if they are awake.
annnnd NOTHING beats snuggling with mommy and daddy!

Smiles for days! This little prince was smiley from the minute he walked in the door till he got out of the tub.
I think so many mom's fear their little one will not cooperate for their photo session. My tricks typically win over those who show signs of unhappiness when they arrive.
Cake smashes and bubble baths are DEFINITELY one of those tricks!
Although on rare occasion, when a little one is just not in the mood for photos, we break up the session. This rarely happens and does not require an extra fee. I deem these as acts of nature ;) Toddlers are unpredictable and THAT'S OK! That's what makes them so fun!
When you're born 5 weeks early you have an uphill battle from day one. I first photographed this amazing little guy at 5 weeks old and just over 5 lbs.
He has since grown from that itty bitty 5+lbs to 10lbs at his 3 months session. We even pulled out some newborn outfits to fit this sweet little one.
But then the most amazing thing happened during this 3 month session....
He fell asleep and we were able to sneak some sweet sleepy images!
