When we started Ayla’s session this morning, she was awake! Then she got the hiccups, which made her mom nervous (would she sleep for her session?) But after she had a full tummy and I gently folded her arms and legs into a smooth and snug swaddle, her tiny eyelids grew heavy, and by the time I tucked in the ends of the cheesecloth, she was out like a light. I think this girl loves a good swaddle! I was even able to slowly undo the swaddle for the second part of the shoot and she didn’t wake up. Of course, my studio is 85 degrees and womb noises pump out of my iPhone nearby, so that always helps… I do all that I can to make sleep irresistible to these sweet little babies. I picked out a few of my favorites to show you. I can’t wait to go through the rest of these!
