Mya is my cousin’s daughter, so this was a very special session as I got to photograph the newest member of my extended family!
Mya had zero interest in sleeping, so we spent the first hour or two visiting and just trying to tire her out. Eventually she gave in for a little while and then popped her eyes open again for the family images. I’d say that 99% of the time babies sleep for portraits with their parents. But once in a while they wake up when the time comes and are super alert. “I gotta stay awake for this one! It’s my close up with my Mommy and Daddy!”
Welcome to the world, beautiful Mya!
