About a week after my sister’s daughter, Hazel, was born, she allowed me to set up a photo shoot with her newborn. I was really excited, but had never done anything like this before. I came out with some sweet shots though, and I enjoyed every minute of getting to know this little one. She is precious, and was a real trooper through the whole thing. Ashley was very patient with me as well, and I enjoyed a few hours with two of my favorite girls! It was wonderful experience– I learned a few things about shooting newborns (like bring extra wipes!). I am by no means an expert, but it was a sheer pleasure to play the photographer. I am all geared up to do it again for my sister-in-law in a few weeks. I hope to just keep trying and improving, and enjoying moments like these:
PS: I have to thank my Aunt Janet, for watching my four so I could get away for a few hours to do this. I absolutely could not have done it without her assistance!!
PPS: I put a watermark on these pics with a free, online tool, but I need something better than that in the future. However, before then, I need a better NAME for my picture hobby… any ideas??
