This adorable baby girl was very alert and after Mom did much rocking and nursing, we thought we wouldn't likely get any of those super sweet newborn-as-art sleeping poses. I always try to prepare parents by letting them know that "baby calls the shots." Sometimes they sleep and sometimes they don't and we are just patient and do our best and we get great shots regardless. BUT, right before I started wrapping things up, she finally decided she had seen all she wanted to see and drifted off to sleep. I think we were all pretty happy it worked out.
