Squishy Newborn Goodness

So, I've wanted to try newborn photography for awhile--I had a good idea about what it entailed, but it was one of those things that I just wasn't sure whether or not I'd love until I had a chance to actually try it. I thought that I'd give it a shot with Lizzy, but that just didn't happen. The first two weeks of Lizzy being born are just a gigantic blur of pain, bliss, joy, and exhaustion...and a photo shoot (especially one with me climbing onto chairs and laying on the floor) was the last thing on my mind.

I have quite a few (like seven) friends who are currently pregnant, so I asked a few of them if I could come try out newborn photography with their little ones. Yesterday, I got to photograph my friend Emily's ten day old son Josiah:

I kind of want to do this every day.

    How long did the whole shoot take? And was it hard to keep the baby asleep?
