Newborn photography sessions are always longer than my usual session time of 90 minutes. Feeding, crying and nappy changing adds to the time, so I always advise the parents that things may take 3-4 hours, and this was the case when Sawyer came into the studio with her mum & dad. We managed to get some really great shots while she was asleep. When she was awake it was just a matter of being patient and taking shots during the calmer moments. The first photograph of mother and baby below is my favourite.
