Baby Maija was 9 days old when we photographed her and she was having a bit of a grumpy day. But in the end persistance and patience (and a lot of nursing!) won out and we ended up getting some wonderful shots! It was such a pleasure to shoot her and catch up with her mom, Kristin. She and I were next door neighbors until age 10 in a little town about 150 miles away. It's crazy that photographing her baby brought us back in touch. I'm so thankful for the little extra things that make this business so special and fun!
