Man it's hard to get a good shot of a newborn baby. Especially when said baby is born during a week long downpour. In winter. Leading to pretty poor light conditions. Add to that baby's compulsion to wee or poo all over the preferred outfit seconds before the photo shoot was to begin. Sigh. Then enter the addition of a big brother who can't understand why you'd like him to be absent for the shot*.
I think we got there in the end.
* since the photo was to be used as a birth announcement/thank you card and all.
