This winter has been the winter of the awake babies. Now, don't get me wrong, I love a sweet, alert, open eyed little one but the sleepers make my job so much easier. Safety is always my priority when working with newborns and there are some poses that are simply not achievable in a safe way is babes are awake. This winter has been full of wrapping but this little gal finally changed all of that! When Grace and her mom arrived, mom was so excited. She had read through the prep guide she received before her session carefully and did everything she could to make sure we would get the most out of their time in the studio. Her work definitely paid off and Grace was already out hard and ready to go when they arrived. We were able to start immediately with some sweet naked setups on the beanbag and we got through all of them without any pees or poops. I had a feeling she had some business brewing so we opted for a diapered wrapped setup next. About 10 minutes in, she got a little fussy and then totally let loose. We got her all changed up and fed and she was ready to do some more naked setups in props. She seriously was one of the and easiest babies. She did manage to pee on my pink fuzzie right at the very end of her session but I walked away clean and dry, which honestly is rare win for me. Little baby Grace is proof that a little bit of preparation can go a long way!
