The Importance of Being Early

Not being born early, but getting your portraits done early in life, as in the first couple days.... preferably by a week... definitely by two weeks.... My reasoning is this: Brand new newborns sleep A LOT and are more likely to sleep through changing poses. As they get more and more days behind them, they are already developing habits in sleeping and waking and eating. While a one month old should still be sleeping a ton, some do not or do not sleep through as much noise & changing positions. And besides if you wait too long, they are no longer "newborn shots," they are "one month" or "two month shots." Yes, this little girl got grumpy with me as did this little guy. She's 3 weeks and he was 16 days old. Past that two week mark. And these are my Thursday Thoughts.

I don't know.

She looks pretty calm to me. Such a sweet little baby. Looks like she was a perfect angel.

I know adults who get grumpy when they get their pictures taken too. . .and they aren't getting changed while they are trying to enjoy a well deserved nap.

Not to be confused the with the Importance of being Earnest! Right? Those pictures are so cute!

Hmmm, so true Chris, so true. At least with adults you should be able to talk to them and reason with them (except for those certain ones who are just really difficult...)

Kudos to Leisel on catching the reference!
