My first newborn photoshoot :)

Ok, not sure how photobucket will upload these. (What do you guys use to upload pics? I HATE photobucket!)
My little nephew Brantley Ray! Sorry if there are a lot. I couldn't decide which ones to post. Smile

Great pics!

I use photobucket, but I hate the way it makes my pictures look. I've heard that flickr does a better job.

These are WONDERFUL, Marie!!

My favs are the hat over the eyes and the B&W. But I'm partial to B&W :O)
Where did you shoot? Did you use mostly natural light??? I wish I had better light in my house.
My big plan that will probably never happen is to set up a small studio in my basement. It has zero natural light but I'm thinking about asking for a light kit for christmas.

I also love your props. Was it just stuff you had laying around?

And I couldn't help buy notice the cloth diapers. Did you have anything to do with that? :O)

Thanks so much ladies!

Lesli, funny, I think we ALL use photobucket and hate it! Lol. I wish Facebook had the http link to directly share photos. that would be great.

Deirdre, I use natural lighting. I think lugging lighting around would be too much for me right now. I do however make my own reflectors with foil and umbrellas. Cheap and easy . Smile I used one in this shoot b/c it was cloudy at times. I totally understand about the sucky lighting in the house. Mine is horrible too. We shot this at my grandparents house.
As for props, I got the basket at the flea market and then one at Jo Anns. Heather made the hats!! I want to do a shoot with my baby #3..... hopefully!

What would your light kit consist of? Flashes scare me. Lol. Do you shoot with them often? I shot the baby when he was born in the hospital and it was a nightmare! Low lighting. I still don't know how I managed to get decent pics. Lol!

Marie- I always wanted to do one with Erin when she was born, but being a new mom, I was always too nervous to mess with her while she was sleeping :O)

To be honest, I have no idea what the kit consists of. I saw it this past February when I was getting some prints for my MIL's b'day. I think it was just one of those big umbrella looking things with a stand. I need to get some more prints so I'll be back there soon and take a better look. But I don't know if it's really something I would get at this time anyway. My basement has mold problems so until we can get that under control, I won't be spending too much time down there and certianly won't have people bring their children!

Ah how beautiful!!! I love everything about these--the itty bitty new baby, the color choices, the fall theme, the cloth diapers. Love it! TFS
