Anneke (and her mum's old teddy)

This is Anneke, seven weeks. When her mum Brenda contacted me about getting some photos done her email said Anneke was "not a placid baby...reasonably often inconsolable... not sleeping well during the day and consequently is fairly overtired and screamy..." so I was expecting a beetroot-coloured little howler. And granted, she did get to that state at one point during the shoot (ahh, it took me back) but you expect that with any newborn, especially when clothing changes are involved, so we had left heaps of time up our sleeves. And as you can see from the photos she is a totally delightful baby, who even slept! For a minute or two.
