Baby Belen also came to visit me last month. She was such a beautiful baby with a full head of dark hair. Mom wanted to keep her session pretty simple and neutral so we used a lot of soft whites and a little bit of rose. This let’s baby be truly be the focus of the photos. This was an interesting session to say the least. Baby Belen had quite the “efficient” system. She would feed and then the instant we would lay her down she would poop. We would them pick her up, clean her everything and she would be wide awake. Repeat – Feed, lay her down, poop, wide awake. You get the idea. This went on for almost 5 hours! Mom really, really wanted a shot of naked baby on her wedding dress (which is stunning by the way). The little one however was just not having it. Every time we laid her on it she would instantly wake up and complain. We would try to feed her to get her sleepy again, but then you know what would happen if we just laid her back down. So instead we finally decided to try and swaddle her to get the shot, and it worked! Mom was happy, and so was I. It was a little bit of compromise but the shot still came out beautiful. It also was a great reminder that we are not in charge, baby is – always! This little one is definitely going to grow up to be one strong, independent woman! Congratulations on the newest addition to your family and thank you for trusting me with your sweet girl. I hope you enjoy the Raleigh area!
