First Smiles ~ Newborn Photography

So, what are the chances that I start taking photos of my 2.5 week old this morning and she chooses that moment to give me her first wide awake grin?

(My son took the next two photos; otherwise, I'd never get to be in a photo)

One Week Old ~ Utah Newborn Photography

This beautiful baby was so much fun to play with today. One of the things I love about photography is that every shoot has so much variability -- you can plan and dream about the shots you want, but when you show up, there's a lot of discovering who you're with, what they're like and plenty of surprises. I love that we caught this little guy smiling, for instance, just as I'd finished setting up the shot.

And I love all the different expressions that only newborns can make.

And then there's always the shots that capture real life -- crying and all!

But most of all, I love those sweet little sleeping newborns.

And sweet fingers and toes.

Congratulations, Angie on a lovely little boy!

More of Katie ~ Utah County Newborn Photography

I think newborn photography is my favorite, especially when it's my own little baby! I finally caught Katie when she was asleep for a few minutes this afternoon. She didn't stay asleep for more than a few minutes once I started posing her, but long enough to get some beautiful shots.

I know these next two shots are similar, but I love them both and can't decide which one I like better.
