Newborn photographers know that when a mommy gets too close to her baby during the photo session, he often smells her (and she smells like MILK to him!) and then he roots and wakes and our sweet photo session turns into a tug-of-war with the tummy! So, when my friend, Trisha, a talented photographer, texted me last week saying that she had been trying to get newborn photos of her own new baby boy every day for five days in a row to no avail, I wasn't entirely surprised. Ha ha! Truly, though, it is HARD to soothe & pose your own baby and I told her that I'd be happy to come over, get him to sleep and pose him so that she could snap the pictures. It wasn't *that* easy, though. This big boy wanted to eat all.the.time - that's why he's a big boy! :) But we eventually won the war and she allowed me to snap a few photos of this adorable boy! I <3 him!!!
