We are having way too much fun with this baby girl. One thing I just love is baby photos. Somewhere along the line I got it in my head that I could do this myself. I even tried with my sister’s kids when they were babies. I remember her loving it until I tried to stuff her son into some pocket precariously attached to the crib! But that didn’t stop me from trying shots with our little Eliana!! It’s pretty easy to move and play around with a full and sleepy baby. But taking photos, good photos, that is another story.
We attempted to do so her first week of life. The first time we tried I thought it would be a good idea right after she ate-while she was in her milk coma. Well, turns out that is also the time that she poo’s everything out she just ate! So I got her good and naked, Brandon was standing by skeptical of a full and diaper-less baby…I set her down on the backdrop-the beautiful quilt my aunt Karen made for her-and wouldn’t ya know it? She smiles at us, I whip out the camera, and she poo’s all over the quilt.
Round two. We decide to feed her, then wait about an hour after she is sleeping and gently move her into position. This works much better, and we had so much fun getting some fun shots of her. I was the baby mover/manipulator and Brandon took a million shots of her. For as many as we took, not too many came out great. These professional photographers sure know what they are doing, no wonder they charge a lot!!
So here are a few that turned out!
