The most challenging part of photography is having to improvise with an unexpected situation. Newborns are particularly unpredictable, and sometimes with big props they react differently.
We photographed Lilya at 10 days young, but she was slightly unsettled that day. She did however, fall asleep for 10 minutes which was just enough for us to quickly get some posed shots of her. We even managed to sneak on a little snail costume. Such a sweet wee poppet :)
