Bright Eyed

There's a rumor floating around that newborn photos should be taken while the baby is asleep. Perhaps, if the baby is to be posed in one of those unnatural head-propped-on-hands positions. I prefer newborns to be awake; eyes taking in the world and always curious. Yes yes, sleeping babies are cute, but open eyes give us a little insight to personality and reminds me - this teeny tiny person has so much potential.
