Day 7: A day in the life of a photographer

Ok. So I really don’t know what happened to day 6. In truth I cheated a little and started the day before New Years in the hope that if I got behind it would leave me some wiggle room to take a day off. Not really sure what day that was but somewhere I lost not just one day but two! I noticed it last night when I posted Day 5 and saw it was January 6th. That probably sums up my life right there. Moving so fast I never see half of it happen!

My big event for the day was a baby photography session, technically an infant session but the baby was 7 weeks old so growing out of it quickly. Typically I like to do these in the first two weeks. Mostly because babies sleep about 18-22 hours of the day in the first 2 weeks plus the LOOK more like an infant. And I’m not kidding about those 22 hours. If you haven’t had a baby you can ask your pediatrician. It is true. So getting those sweet sleeping baby shots does require some finesse but it makes my job a lot easier.

Well little Baby B being 7 weeks old is a lot like most 6-7 week olds, newly discovering their environments, being able to see more than only a couple inches from their face they notice a whole new world out there and they don’t want to miss ANY Of it. Funny… I just had another little one in not too long ago that was exactly the same way. Although we did get her to sleep it didn’t last long. She was just loving seeing the new faces and colors. She never once cried no matter how many times we put her to sleep only to have her pop her little eyes open again. Just a perfect little angel.

Ok so I am off to process the images or at least a couple of them so I can stay on top of this blog! I may have created a monster here. I will update this entry with the pictures when I can at least scan through them enough to pick my top two or three.  (ha ha!) Just finished. I guess I am incapable of not being an overachiever.
