Sorry I've been MIA recently. So much going on recently, plus taking care of a newborn.. well now three month old! So we just renovated the master bedroom in our townhouse, and it is now my new home studio. So far its just laminate floor, base boards, and white paint. A white desk and chair... nothing fancy. I had my first practice shoot with a little sweetie who just turned one on the weekend. She was the first newborn I ever photographed, so I have a real soft spot for her. When I was setting up I flicked a switch on the side of my camera without noticing, and the lens stopped focusing... OMG, total panic. Lets just say my camera and I are really still getting to know each other! Anyways, I finally got it working after tampering with every setting I could, and they arrived minutes after. I was in a total fluster the whole shoot. I faced the baby away from the light for some reason. It was my first time in a studio environment, and I was soo out of it. After I transferred the images, I realized I had reset the camera, so all medium quality jpegs, no RAW files. Also, my custom white balance was lost. whoops. I guess this is why I'm still not charging a penny!
Some from the shoot. CC is always welcome.
1. I wanted to see how this style of lighting looked with a LO. Not too crazy about it, but also not disappointed. Focus can be a struggle though.

3.Sibling shot (we did one just like this when she was a newborn) this one was ok lighting wise, except I blew the blanket on one side, and couldn't recover it.. probably because it was a standard size jpeg. I tried some painting, and adjusting... but it still looks a bit funky.
