I've been photographing newborns for over six years. And I can GENUINELY say that my own three have been my toughest clients. I don't know if I just have more patience with other people's Smalls, or if newborns REALLY can "smell their mama's milk", but for whatever reason, mine are the most fidgety, awake newborns only (during photo shoots only. During "normal" days, and nights, they are amazing and sleep constantly. Little stinkers). Miss Zoe was VERY wide awake and kind of a crankasaurus for the first hour or so. Thankfully my momma was here to look after the other two, J was by my side to help keep me calm, and after the first hour she settled in and let us get some great asleep shots. I guess we'll keep her :)
Now have a gander at this tiny human that we made, and try and tell me she isn't absolutely perfect!

Because her Daddy needed one, "without a stupid headband". Yes, that's a direct quote… ;)
