Baby Reid

February 27th, 2013

When it comes to photographing newborns, patience is really the biggest skill in my ‘toolbag’ – I never know if a session is going to take 2.5 or 4 hours, how many times the baby will wake up and want to eat, will the baby like the white noise and space heater or are they going to wake up every time they lay on my bean bag?   Every session brings it’s own challenges, but this past weekend, my biggest problem was what I was going to do with all of my leftover time!  Reid was an amazing little model for us – he was asleep the second I got to their house and didn’t wake up the whole 2 hours (record time!) that I was there.  He did open his eyes once or twice to let me snap a few shots, but other than that, he slept “like a baby”.  His parents are in for a treat with this little guy (and with a Boilermaker Dad and a fellow Big Ten mom, it’s no wonder they have an awesome little baby)!
