Overnight Baby Obsession

Really. It was over night. One day I was like "no way I will shoot newborns" and the next I was like "BRING ME ALL OF THE BABIES!"

I love the lifestyle-type photos of the new baby at home with mom and dad, and those are super easy and fun.

But then they whipped out a tu-tu and I almost died. A few little adjustments and my obsession was born.

The posed shots are hard, yo. You needs tons of equipment and props and good lighting and then you need a sleepy baby. I don't know if you know this, but babies pretty much do what they want to do. So if they don't want to sleep, they won't. But I love the challenge of getting the shot. It may take a few hours, but it's soooooo worth it.

 I cheated here. These are 2 out of 3 triplets. One was nursing and I just couldn't stop photographing them.&nbsp;

So for now, I'm a photographer who wants to specialize in weddings, babies, and concerts. Can I do that or is that just weird? I am weird, so I should just roll with it. And that's what I plan to do :)
