Annapolis Newborn Twins Photographer

What is more precious than a sleeping newborn baby? Two newborn sleeping babies! Well, at least when one of them finally decides to fall asleep. lol I just had to post this image . . . it was probably, in my photography career, the longest time to capture one, single image. One of the twins slept like a log, the other refused until she finally tired herself out. Finally . . . once situated, just as my finger was getting ready to push the shutter, an older sibling, also in the studio, lets out a laugh and wakes the fussy baby. . . it took another 45 minutes to get her calmed down and back asleep. What a sense of accomplishment once I had this moment captured and preserved for years to come.

Annapolis Newborn Photographer

I've been MIA since Thanksgiving . . . things have quieted down a little bit so I'm trying to get some loose ends taken care of. Updating my blog is one of them! Meet Danny . . . what a cute newborn baby boy. Once he fell asleep, I was able to get some adorable images of him. This is one of my favorites. If I get a chance, I'll post some more of his session.
