Newborn Faves

I shot my first "official" newborn session for my friend's baby girl.  She is so beautiful.  I mean c'mon look at all that dark hair and those cute little lips and she was a breeze to pose and photograph.  I couldn't have asked for a more perfect baby for my first round.  We did take some full body nakie pics that I absolutely adore but, the parents opted to keep those pictures private which I completely respect.  I learned a lot about how to pose a newborn, what kind of props I like and what I don't and that I need to wear extra deodorant as I will surely sweat a lot with a space heater blasting on me for two hours.  hehe.  I was always so nervous about tackling newborn sessions because babies are so unpredictable but,  now I can truly say that I can't wait to shoot more!  Here are some of my favorites from our two hour session together.

  11. Oh, Casey, you've outdone yourself! These are exquisite! That next to last one...my, oh my!

    I hear you on the deoderant thing...my last newborn shoot didn't go well the first attempt (we rescheduled the next day, and that day went perfectly), and I sweated THROUGH my shirt! Ew!

  13. Absolutely precious Casey- you did a GREAT job!!!! I think it's always best to have your first few sessions with friends- so you are more comfortable while you find your groove. I don't have any expecting friends- so I just keep telling K that we have to have another baby so I can practice my skills. I think I may be kidding myself though- adding a 4th child- and getting back into baby mode after 8 years- I wouldn't have the time for full blown photo shoots. :) I need to make friends with a younger mommy crowd to get my fix :)
