Crying Newborn Shots

Newborn sessions can be quite stressful.  The newborns don't always cooperate.  Sometimes they are hungry, sometimes they poop, and sometimes they cry.  In my shoots, when a newborn cries, I usually keep snapping away.  I often tell the parents that they may not appreciate these crying photos now, but I promise that they will in the future.  After all, a photo of a clearly miserable kid isn't that appealing right?  However, I don't think the goal of lifestyle newborn photography is to simply make beautiful photos.
