So much of my job is about timing.  You have to be in the right spot at the right time to get the shot that you need.  It might sound like I am talking about the weddings we photograph, but the same principle really applies to photographing babies!  For Miss Abbie we had to wait for her to be in the right mood and once we got her happy, we moved quickly! She was so incredibly sweet and chatted up a storm while I shot away!
