Photographer audition: Baby photographer

Challenge #105 in the The Art Director series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
A local portrait studio recently lost their highly acclaimed baby photographer. The other photographers employed there are unable to take on the additional work, so they are looking to add a new photographer with experience shooting babies and toddlers. Submit one or two of your best photos of a toddler or baby. The subject must be well lit but with no direct (on camera) flash. The subject must appear to be posed (as much as you can pose infants and toddlers), not taken as a snapshot.

49th place (joint)
My son when he was 10 days old. We had done all the "traditional" poses, but this one seemed more in line with his -personality-, and ended up being the keeper.
