Newborn Shoot Later Today

And I'm so nervous. They're friends and this was part of my gift to them. I'm so nervous that it won't go well. I haven't done that many newborns, and I've yet to get one to really fall asleep for me. I want to try all those cute curly poses...but I'm just so worried baby won't curl for me.

I'm also upset that I don't have a better lens for this. I may end up using the nifty 50 for this because the focus on the tamron is slightly inconsistent ....plus, I dropped the darn thing today and now I'm worried about it. I'd use the 70-200....but the thing is so darn HUGE and I'm not sure I'll have enough space.

UGH!

I'd say go w/ the 50mm ... but don't stress ... you are gonna do GREAT!!!!

Relax and have FUN with this. They're friends. So if you are unhappy, you can always call for a re-do. Smile

Best,

I am sure you will do great! I can't give you any advice either, but it is great that they are friends, just in case the babe doesn't work well.

How old is baby? If s/he is under 2 weeks (and if they sleep!) you should be able to get them to curl. Bring a space heater and noise machine. Crank UP the heat before getting baby nekkid. If it's toasty (and you are sweating) then they should stay asleep fairly well.

Do you have a bean bag?

Can't wait to see them! I did my second newborn a few weeks ago. It's on my website.
