Newborn shoot

So i went to a friend's house to do some shots of her newborn. He is such a sweetie but the setup was a NIGHTMARE! The sun barely came out at all during the day so i had to open all the windows (but they still had large overhangs blocking light) and ended up sitting in front of an open door with a heater on high to keep us all warm. The door was behind me directly so to not block the light/cast shadows i had to dodge and duck and move around. Not easy. My settings i had to use were also a challenge but i tried to make do with shooting WIDE open or nearly wide open, and EXTREMELY low shutter speeds. Ack! So anyways....there are some issues with focus and DOF but with what i was working with i was happy with 'em...

Wow! If it was such a challenge, you sure did an awesome job! These are wonderful photos! I LOVE the little foot, and the last one is a really precious, sweet moment - you captured a real sense of mother/baby bonding there.

thank you! I was tempted to come back another day and try again with more light but since he was already 8 days old and was 8 days overdue when born he was already awake most of the time, lol....didn't want to push it!

These are really wonderful and have given me some great ideas for newborn pics of my little one, when he finally shows up!
