Great birth control (no, not OT)

I did a newborn session today with a little guy that reminded me of my Benny's early days. He just would not stop fussing. Every time he managed to fall asleep, he'd be up 3 minutes later crying. He's only 7 days old, but his mom says he's been doing this since he's born. I told her to bring him around me more often to remind me...

I really didn't get a lot of good shots. These are my favorites. I find newborns to be my Achilles heel - I really need to learn some tricks with them. I'm scheduled for a seminar in April and I just can't wait.

I really like the tighter crop in #2 as well. It's so sweet and intimate!

I really like #2 as well. The black and white is done so well.

Thanx ladies! I appreciate the feedback. I really can't wait to learn this more. I love photographing newborns, even though that is not a huge trend in this community.

I saw the two pink vintage-y pics that you posted on FB this morning, and I was in love! I love the textures & processing you did on them, I'd love to hear how you did them Smile I know they weren't newborns, but they were a little different than your usual style.

Amy - I'll put that in a separate thread for those interested. I'll try to recreate the process with another image and post step by step images.
