I love taking new born photos. In fact it is my baby gift of choice to my friends. What better gift then one that will last for generations? This cutie belongs to my friend Melissa. She looks just like her big brother in profile and a lot like him from the front view. Recently I’ve been inspired by some sleeping baby photos on a Flikr group I belong to and cannot wait to try them out on the next newborn shoot! There is even a new snuggly crochet baby cocoon just itching to be used. There are no patterns for these anywhere so I had to pull the dumb thing out twice after it was halfway made. It may still be a little big. Newborns are definitely the cutest sound sound asleep! As soon as I show the other newborn shoot to her mom I’ll share some more newborn photos with you.
Having the camera ready even when getting ready for a different shot pays off quite a bit. I was just about to move some props around standing right over the baby when Melissa stuck her hand in to sooth her. LOVE the result.
