I always tentatively schedule newborns based on their due dates. To put you on my calendar I start with your due date, then add about 10 days and schedule as close to that date as possible. However, you know as well as I do, that babies decide when they’ll enter this world, not us 🙂 This is one of the major reasons that I don’t schedule too many clients in any given week – sometimes we have to change the session date after baby is born and I want to make sure I have space to do that!
This is the only reason I was a bit nervous that this adorable little man (don’t you love his cheeks??) would arrive a lot earlier than planned. My family was in Africa until the week before his due date so it would have been difficult to get here for an early session! 😉 Thankfully there were no problems and we were even able to keep the original date scheduled for his session! This little man made it through his session just fine, but he wasn’t always interested in sleeping . . . I’m so in love with these awake shots though! You may notice the fox hat and stuffie too – this is something his parents brought along for the session since his nursery is a woodland animal theme . . . how adorable is this?! I’m so happy I got to meet him and his parents, this was a fun day 🙂
