Meet my third newborn to be photographed in the new Midlothian newborn studio! Baby JP! At 5 days old JP's mom and grandma brought him to me so that I could practice some poses and studio lighting. This session was a portfolio building session so I had three poses in mind that I wanted to get from this teeny tiny little man. If I got 2 out of the 3 I would be a happy lady. Everything was just right, the room was 85-90 degrees, the posing beanbag was toasty warm, soothing white noise was filling the room, but JP wasn't having it! He feel asleep for about 2 seconds and then he was bright eyed and bushy tailed the rest of the time. I've never seen a 5 day old baby so alert. We tried everything, but this little man wasn't going to do anything he didn't want to do. He was a stubborn little thing, but so am I so I wasn't about to quit. I was determined to get those 3 poses (well at that point I was settling for one good pose). Four hours later we all realized it wasn't going to happen. So Maegan was kind enough to agree to come back the following week and we would try again. (Fast forward to the next week) JP won. He proved to be more stubborn than I was and after 2 hours I gave in and let him do his thing. Turns out little JP at almost 10 days old taught me an invaluable lesson.
