The Twins, Individually
I knew the session was going to be good when I plopped the freshly stripped baby James on the blanket and he flashed me a smile. Since I always do my settings manually, it was miraculous that the exposure was set well enough for a split second snapshot.. I snapped the on button, then the shutter and that quick his smile was gone-but I CAUGHT it! yay!
At eight pounds, nearly twice his sisters' size, he looks like a MONSTER. But really, he is still teeny tiny. (At least for me)
I just *LOVE* this expression....
His Mama was concerned because he is usually so alert and squirmy-but he slept most of the time for me which is awesome for 5 weeks old!
I did love to see his beautiful eyes though too.
To say little sister Jessica is a pipsqueak would be an understatement. She is the teeniest baby I have ever seen. Which was hard to capture.
She somehow managed to have plentiful hair though! Look at that 'do!
Her little body just curled so easily, she let me pose her however I wanted.
But when she woke up, her intent little gaze was what did me in.
My props were baskets and blankets gathered from around the house.
My camera was my trusty digital Canon Rebel XT, which is not so trusty these days. I think I am wearing her out, but she didn't give me any lip during the shoot so I was VERY grateful.
I edit and convert photos to black and white using the free program Picasa.
The most USEFUL item (next to the camera) for the shoot~ a beanbag.
And finally, a picture of my "natural light studio":
