Baby Mercy is what I like to call a baby unicorn. A magical, mystical beast disguised as a beautiful newborn baby that is perfect in every way. Coming from a photographer that means a super sleepy, squishy, posable baby that sleeps straight through her session. And hits every pose like a pro.
Now don’t get me wrong…I love every baby I meet. Even the grumpy and fussy babies. When they come in that just means I get more snuggling time! I could think of way worse issues to have for a job, kwim?
This was a Petite Newborn session which takes no more than 2 hours. If the baby is hungry or gassy or just fussy, we may end up with more wrapped/swaddled poses in order to fill up the gallery with images. But with a unicorn baby we can knock out so much variety in a short period of time.
These babies are very, very rare, so don’t get discouraged if your baby isn’t a unicorn for her session. It’s really shocking to me when I meet one! I do a happy dance after every newborn session (no really, I do. I love them so much!) But I do an extra little jig when I get a unicorn!
