As a former paparazzi, one of the things I knew I wanted to do right away when baby boy was here was to have a fancy schmancy newborn photo session. We’ve all seen the pics of those babies that never cry and are always smiling in their sleep.
Photographers recommend that newborn pics be taken within the first 7 days of the baby’s birth so they’re nice and sleepy. Caden had jaundice and I just wasn’t feeling up to it right after coming home from the hospital. I waited 10 days. How did baby’s first photo shoot go??? Not only did he not sleep one second, but he peed on the props. 🙂 After two hours, we gave up on the sleepy smiley shots. Of course, he promptly passed out in the car as we left the photographer’s studio.
