Meet Lily! At just 5 days old she is already as strong willed as her mom, my friend, Danielle. After a strong start in the session, Lily had two things on her mind- eating and staying awake. And, that’s exactly what she did! I tried everything in my bag of tricks to get her back to sleep but she was not having it. She put on her “2 am ready to party face” and that was that. She had me questioning my entire career path as a newborn photographer, lol. I guess we all have those days, right? It’s amazing what newborns can make you do/think! Without being able to talk, or basically do anything for themselves, they sure do have a way of making their points. There is no doubt that they are the ones in control! In her case, Lily had a doctor’s appointment to go to after our session and it’s like she was trying to get out of it- like a kid would try to get out of going to school on a test day. Except, instead of faking sick, she stayed awake so we couldn’t finish the session. Well played, Lily, well played. Well, I’m hoping that I can get Lily back in the studio for a few more shots, but until then, enjoy these!
The headbands used here are from some of my favorite shops: One Sweet Chickadee, Baby Girl Dreams, and Darling Little Bow Shop. Check them out on etsy! Thanks, as always, for the great headbands, ladies!
Congratulations! She is perfect!
