Newborns are so unpredictable! No matter if parents follow the prep guide to the letter or don't. It really can be a toss up with what you get. I love them ALL!! I don't ever get mad if I get a not sleepy baby. Why? Because I LOVE every baby's individual personality. No matter how they are, they are perfect. If we were all cookie cutters we know how boring this world would be. So newborns of all different personalities is what keeps me on my toes!
So what do I do when I get a newborn that despite ALL the tricks simply will NOT sleep??
I go with the flow!!! Even though I don't get your typical newborn images, I am STILL going to capture your newborn for who they are. Your little guy/girl doesn't feel sleepy that day, ok lets capture them awake. I will still do so in a flattering way so you will have memories to cherish for all time!! Sometimes like in the middle picture, I will improvise and add Momma's loving warm hands. I have been doing this enough years to know, sometimes you just have to go with the flow.
I want to share a photo with you of the most handsome little guy who no matter what, would not sleep much. Tried all the tricks, had everything how it should be and yet,, he was like, NOPE!! Here is just a couple photos of his AWESOME gallery, but he did end up with a full gallery of absolute adorableness!
Comment below if you had a newborn who you took to get photographed and they just wouldn't sleep. Seems more common than most would think. :)
