Newborn Baby Nolan!

So, I finally got the chance to use my studio for a newborn baby shoot!  I've done plenty of newborns before, but it was always on-location, dragging backdrops, lights, and props with me.  Little Nolan was a total hoot, and while some shots really look like a peaceful sleeping baby, he was mostly wide awake, curious, and taking it all in!  Look at these peepers, people!

Handsome little dude!

Although as a newborn photographers, we like sleepy babies, like this:

Seemingly sleepy, but it only takes 1/200 of a second of his eyes closed to pretend he is asleep!

But, having newborns awake is totally worth it when I can get a shot like this one, my personal favorite from this shoot. 

Every time I look at this image, it makes me yawn.  I don't look nearly as adorable as this little yawner!
