Newborn Photos

Wednesday, June 3, 2009

As I mentioned the other day, I've really been working on my photography lately.

Hunter's arrival has given me the perfect reason to try to improve my skills. First was my coverage of his birth, which was all candid shots. But even before he was born, I was already preparing myself for his newborn session! Because let's face it, there is really nothing cuter than those snuggly, curled-up, sleeping newborn photos, is there?

I don't think so.

I'm pretty proud of these, so I wanted to share some of them here. For some reason, after uploading, some of the colors (especially his skintones) look a little wonky (at least on my computer), so please excuse any weird color issues you may be seeing. Sometimes I really hate the web!

Isn't he beautiful? Trevor and Kara have much to be proud of.

He loves sleeping with his little hands up by his face.

He was so good; he slept the entire time. I manipulated him into a bunch of different poses, too. He's a trooper. Every once in a while, if I was really bugging him, he'd stir a bit, but we would just give him his binky for a minute while I got him set up, then pop it back out again. Worked like a charm.

Probably my favorite shot of the day.
At the very end, he started waking up. I took the opportunity to get a few quick shots of him with his eyes open. He is such a sweetheart. I love him to pieces.
Big thanks to Kara and Trevor for letting me "experiment" with a newborn session, and for giving me such a perfect model! :)
