This first month is about eating, feeding, and sleeping. In between those crucial activities, we had to squeeze in photo shoots. The curly baby poses are hard to get, and it was tricky to time this just right—right after feedings so that she’s sleepy enough. Then, there were times we had to dodge bodily functions. We weren’t always successful, but the pictures are worth getting dirty for. I always felt like time was running out, as each day brought new changes.
