An old friend of mine asked me to take some photos of his new baby, so of course I jumped at the chance. First of all, I adore newborn babies. They are just so tiny. Every time I see one, I forget how tiny they are even though I just saw one a couple months ago. They really are little miracles. Second, I'm trying to build up a portfolio for when I actually start this photography thing for real. Sounded like a perfect deal to me. I was in for a surprise with this little guy who was just wide awake the whole time. I didn't quite know what to do...I did learn that you cannot 'pose' an infant who is awake. Keep the cute poses for the sleeping ones. Even though I didn't get to do all the poses and cute things I had planned in my head, I got some great shots that I wouldn't even have thought to have done otherwise. Hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I did taking them!
I just love his expression in this one. Priceless.
Okay, so he did sleep for about a minute when I first got there...
I like his hands in this one.
Look how tiny he looks compared to his dad's hand!
This pose was her idea and I love it.
I think this is my favorite. It really captures the love.
