Welcome Baby Jackson "Cole" - 2 pics

Jackson "Cole" was born on November 13th at 37 weeks. I went into "preterm" labor due to Chorio...an infection of the amniotic sac and fluid. Luckily, it didn't pass to him and after a few days in the hospital we were released. Unfortunately, we were readmitted for another day due to Jaundice when he was 5 days old and have been working on recovering since.

Wasn't able to do a shoot with him until today at 13 days old. He is still a sleepy boy, but has no interest in curling or sleeping today! Going to try again tomorrow, but here's what I was able to pull out before he was bright-eyed....



I've never done any work with newborns before and really had no idea what I was doing. Not sure how they turned out and am totally open to any suggestions Smile Thanks everyone and Happy Thanksgiving!!

Thanks ladies! I don't have my settings with me but I'm pretty sure I was shooting 1/60, 2.8, iso 200 and bouncing flash off ceiling for some oompf. Pp was just a curves layer, a color balance layer to get rid of some of the extra yellow and resize+sharpen.

Cazz - lol. Yep! Good catch! Couldn't have planned that if I tried! I was so glad they had their own birthdays. I was pretty upset that I couldn't be with Raegan on her birthday though because of the h1n1 restrictions at the hospital. Sad
