Second Time’s a Charm – Cambridge Newborn Photographer

“People who say they sleep like a baby usually don’t have one.”

Leo J. Burke

Ah newborns.  So fresh, so new, so absolutely loveable and huggable and so totally and 100% on noones schedule but their own:)

People often times think that newborn photography is easy.  How hard can it be.  Put a hat on a sleeping baby and snap away.  What many people don’t know is that a typical newborn session usually runs anywhere from 2.5 to 4 hours!  There are many times when I will go to a newborn photo session and will be two hours in and still have not taken a single photograph.

Meet sweet baby C. When I first met this little toot he was 10 days old – our session got off to a flying start and I was praising my sweet, cooperative little man to the moon and back.  Then I tried to move him and we had a very wakey baby!  Try as we might our precious newbie was a wee bit camera shy.

However – with children’s photography there ALWAYS has to be a plan B.  You have to know when to call it quits and we did just that.  This morning I visited my little Mr. Man again at 12 days old and he was quite the different baby.

Introducing Baby C.  10 and 12 days old and absolutely perfect – both while asleep AND awake;)
