Having a baby is such an miraculous time for any family but when it is a third baby, it is an even bigger adventure for the older siblings. This newborn session was such a statement in the reality of parenting, I had to chuckle. Parents are always so apologetic when their kids are "not behaving" or a newborn won't sleep, or I get peed or pooped on... it is all part of what I do, and it all happens during EVERY newborn session. Part of the adventure of photographing kids is working around their quirks and hopefully getting the shot to remember. This middle child wanted NO part of this session. None, nada, zilch. So... we do the best we can, and then we maybe swap out his head in photoshop. ;) What can I say, I do what must be done.
"No, I don't want to hold my sister!"
Baby Vivian would not go to sleep no matter what we tried. She did not want to miss a second of her newborn session!
