I had grand plans for photographing my daughter Oona for her 1 month old photos. I had a cute dress all picked out for her, I had a cute dress picked out for my 2 year old Viola.
Viola was napping and I decided it was the perfect time to take some natural light photos.... Oona stayed awake for less than 5 minutes. When Viola woke up, we headed to my studio.
As soon as we arrived at the studio, Viola stripped down to her diaper. The last time we were there to take photos, she wanted to be in her diaper since Oona was in hers.
Since Viola was in her diaper and Oona decided to sleep, Oona remained in her diaper as well.
I was beyond grateful that my friend Julie and her son Derrick came along to the studio.... Julie helped keep Viola from squishing her little sister. She gets very excited and wants to hold her and lay on her constantly. Since we had company, Viola was cooperating a bit during the shoot and hammed it up for the camera.
Yet again while photographing children (especially your own) patience is a virtue. My grand ideas were thrown out the window and I got some pretty cute shots.
I even caught Oona's dimples as well as a sleep/milk drunk smile :)
