2 weeks old : Meridian Idaho newborn photographer

When I found out Noelle was pregnant and due at the beginning of September, I was so super excited about being able to do some newborn pictures outside because it would still be so warm at that time of year. So when Josie was just 2 weeks old, Noelle and I packed up the car with lots of fun outdoor props and took off downtown. Josie had been up for several hours by the time we got there and we thought, surely she'll sleep like a baby. So I set everything up while Noelle tried to get Josie to sleep. Tried is the key word there. She just wasn't havin it. We tried 3 different locations, getting her in and out of the car 3 times and setting props up 3 times. Finally at the last place we tried, she let us at least put her in a basket for a minute without crying. We only got ONE picture. After all that. We came away with one picture. But at least Noelle got a shot for her announcement. I've been waiting to post this picture until after the birth announcements had been sent so I wouldn't spoil it. So, here is. The one good picture we got that night.

This is what the rest of the pictures from that night look like......

Love, love, love it! It is so fun to see outdoor shots of a newborn, they're so unique and beautiful. I love the lighting on the second shot too, even if she's crying :) Beautiful job!

Oh the potential. We could have had some beautiful pictures. Sorry my daughter was so difficult.
