Newborn Session with Baby Harlow

I shot my first newborn session about 2 months ago with an adorable family in Austin. I was pretty nervous since I had zero experience with babies, let alone a 10 day old tiny baby. I researched newborn sessions for hours for ideas and advice on how to keep the baby calm and happy. Turns out, there's only so much that you can do and the rest is up to whether the baby wants to cooperate or not. Baby Harlow was incredibly adorable, but she was a little wiggle worm and not sleepy at all. At that moment I realized any poses or plans I had in mind for the shoot weren't going to happen so I decided to capture as many precious moments as possible in between the crying. Overall the shoot was a great learning experience and I have a newfound respect for newborn photographers!
