Photography: Baby Portraits

Isn’t that yawn just the best? I think the little nose wrinkles are the best. I wish I looked that cute when I yawned.

This little guy is a friend’s nephew and she wanted to surprise her sister with some baby pictures of him. Since I’d never done any infant photos, I was a bit nervous. So worried I’d mess it up, or we wouldn’t get him to calm down, or everything would just go terrible. I tend to put way too much pressure on myself, but I was surprised by how well it went.

Baby D was a champ. He slept most of the time and when he woke up it was just for a snack. I read up on some Pinterest tips and we just dove in from there. Kept things calm, put no pressure on ourselves or the little guy, and took our time. I am so pleased with our results. They’re not perfect, but for my first attempt everything turned out better than I imagined. Yay for leaving my comfort zone and finding success.

I hope you enjoy a sampling of Baby D. He sure is a “little nugget.”
