Lots of firsts coming my way, including this baby photo shoot for neighbors Lorin and Mike who just had daughter Peyton a little over a month ago! Immense thank you to Lorin and her sister who were totally patient with me. Actually, they were a major creative force during this shoot and were super excited to be a part of it. I am truly grateful for the experience and from it I have some great pictures for Mike and Lorin that they will have forever.
I took around 400 pictures, I have gone through a handful of them and still have a ton more to go through. But in the mean time, I wanted to put some of my favorites up on the blog. Nothing wrong with a little preliminary sharing….and hopefully in a few weeks I will have Peyton’s photos all processed and ready to go : )
Oh, even dog Henry got in on the action and I had to post him on the blog too! Babies and dogs, two of the cutest things life has to offer!
And one last thing – as Maarit looked at these she made a great point – why is it that Peyton is mostly laying down? Yeah, I think I needed to add a bit more poses, but like what do you do with a newborn! And I was so caught up in doing a good job taking the pictures, I sort of let the posing ideas go…and this is something great to learn. Next time I’m taking baby pictures (or anyone for that matter) I need to make sure to mix it up a bit! And for the babies….I need a bean bag to place them on….that’s what the professionals do: )
