It amazes me how some people think that all newborns are alike. Their tiny personalities shine through from the very beginning, often even in the womb, a mother can get little glimpses of her child’s temperment. Little Emmett was no exception. He seems like a wise little old man in some ways… so thoughtful… reminds me of the statue, “the thinker”. He was quite an awake little one but we were still able to get lots of sweet awake shots and a number of sleepy ones too. He was just happiest when all swaddled up and cozy, all though mom, dad and I were cooking in my ultra-warm studio. Not all newborns sleep the way we would like them too. It is always interesting to me that although we all ooo and aaa over the sleepy shots, the first ones that get chosen for printing is often the wide-awake, looking straight at you shot (eyes not crossing of course ). I love these too. I was always the child who had to look through 20 of the same doll or stuffed animal before choosing the one with the “right” eyes. The eyes are a window to the soul, it is said. So glad I could get some of these beautiful wide-eyed shots for you too. Isn’t he gorgeous?
