Hey guys, been a while since I've shared anything! Here are a few of my new niece--I took the pictures when she was 6 days old. The weather was TERRIBLE, but I was able to find a room with enough natural light so that I didn't have to use my flash. Yay!! Just took a little bit of furniture rearrangement...
She was tough too--took a LONG time to get into a sound sleep. My BIL and SIL kept saying "she doesn't go into a deep sleep, I just don't think she's going to sleep the way you need her too."
Anyway, all settings are around SS 125, f/1.8-f/2.2, ISO 500-ISO 640:
5. I know this one is a bit soft--camera shake. I was using my 50mm and it was really awkward to get this shot and not crop the basket.
8. I just think this one is funny, LOL!
9. Since I'm already on pic overload, LOL!
PLEASE don't feel the need to comment on them all. Any input is appreciated though!
Oh, and this may have made me want one of my own.....
Real quick...have to get ready for a shoot this morning. Favorites 1, 3, and 9. CC - Dad is disappearing in #7...would probably have worked better in a grey shirt, with dad shirtless, or with a grey background. For this image though....wondering if you could mask dad a bit so that his blacks aren't as black as the background.

Beautiful shots! And I'm glad she slept so well for you. The only thing I can think of to CC right now is the material showing in 2 in the bottom right corner. I'd maybe crop it so that a little more shows and it's not quite so distracting, or none shows at all.
#6 is my fave of the bunch. Just love it!!
Also LOVE the face in # 4.... would love to see a close up.
She is beautiful.
Oh and PS..... Love the new siggy Congrats!

aaaaaaaawwwwwwwww, look at her! so glad she fell asleep for this.
love the little spit bubbles in the first one.
2. so sweet ... but the colors in the shadows just seem too red to me.
5. awesome job getting the tub. I know that struggle with the 50mm (which is why I bought the 30mm ) I really love this shot!
6. love the coccoon shot!
do you have any mom shots? I love seeing dad, but I want to see mom too.
And I really love your new siggy! the watermark looks terrific too (not sure I remember seeing that one ... I know you had been working on a new one, so maybe it's really been a while since I've seen new pictures from you)

Congrats Meagan!! I'm so excited for you.
She looks a little too pink overall to me in #2. #8 is really funny. I love 9 the best, so sweet with her little hand under her chin.
Thanks for the CC!
Yeah, I ALWAYS tend to leave newborns with too much pink. I am so paranoid of making them look washed out. When will I learn, LOL! I'll play with it again, thanks.
Gwen, I don't have any with mom. My SIL refuses to be in any photographs of any kind, no matter how much you reason with her. Oh well. I only got a few with my BIL before he went to bed (he'd been up all night with the baby), so there were a few more I wanted to get with him that we never got too.
Juliana, thanks!!! You got my "subtle" hint, LOL! We're SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(and a little freaked out)
Oh my goodness, I'm so oblivious! Congratulations!!!!
