Newborn Portrait Session -- Not!

I was all set to do a newborn portrait session in my clients' home.  I had all my props, my gear, and the car for the afternoon.  I was ready for anything.

Little A was just finishing his feeding when I arrived, and he seemed content.  I happily shot a few shots of his darling sister once I set things up.

Isn't she an angel?  I don't think you can take a bad shot of Miss J.  She loves the camera; and of course, the camera loves her.  Her whole face lights up when she smiles.

Once her little brother was settled, we set him in my basket and I snapped a few preliminary shots.

Isn't he precious?  It may look like he was sleeping, but alas, no.  Mama had eaten some raw veggies the day before, and I think his little tummy didn't like it.  No, not one bit.  He gave me a yawn...

...Miss J sweetly kissed him...

...and in another several seconds, this is what met our eyes (and ears):

He proceeded to fuss, cry, holler, and fuss some more for three hours.  Alas, there was to be no newborn portrait session that particular day.  It was a great learning time for me, though, and I captured some sweet little girl portraits.

Miss J had to climb into the basket I set up for Mr. A, so I captured her silliness.

I was blessed.  I learned a lot, got some sweet girly portrait images, fed a family, and had great fellowship.  I even got to rock the baby.  All in all, a very good afternoon.  :)
