Occasionally I'll get a newborn that gives me a run for my money. Usually it is because they are over 2 weeks old and are aware of their surroundings. This little guy had me stumped, he was at a great weight and age for newborn photos but refused to fall asleep! I even tried all my best tricks.
This was the first shot of the day where he briefly fell asleep.
Then we discovered that he really liked being propped up, instead of every other pose that we tried.
Sometimes these little guys have a mind of their own, even when they are only 2 weeks old :)
