These pictures were taken right after my little buddy woke up from her nap. This was the order of her emotions and it literally happened in 3 to 5 seconds that she went from sleepy to pouty to silly. The one in the middle is my favorite. The other 2 were going to get tossed aside because of the blurred look and the funky lighting but when they are put together they really tell a story about my child and her unpredictable personality. To me that is what photography is all about.
I had my first attempt at a newborn photo shoot. Baby Layla is 12 days old. She was a beautiful model. Newborn babies are not as easy to photograph as I had expected. Keeping them comfortable and happy is a challenge. I hope all you ladies keep having babies so I can try some more. It was so fun; now I know why some photographers spend 4 plus hours at a newborn session.
The 2 hours I spent with Layla flew by and there were so many more shots I wish I could have gotten. Anyway, here is one of them.
