A newborn baby has only three demands. They are warmth in the arms of its mother, food from her breasts, and security in the knowledge of her presence. Breastfeeding satisfies all three. ~Grantly Dick-Read

I entered Cindy's home, with my arms full of gear to shoot her 2 week old daughter J.  As she finished getting ready, I set up.  Baby J was getting hungry.  Cindy fed her while I waited.  This happens often during infant and baby shoots and I am prepared to wait and chat with the new mom, or keep busy in another room if mom is more comfortable.  Baby J fed and fed and fed.  Then we tried to shoot...but she was still hungry.  So she fed and fed and fed.  Cindy and I had a great conversation and I really enjoyed the relaxed environment.  Since we were losing light in the living room where I had set up, we moved to the front porch and front lawn. We got some amazing shots.

Cindy, it was a pleasure to spend time with you and your beautiful daughter.  She is amazing and adorable. 
Here are a few of my faves.
