I was lucky enough last week to get to do another newborn shoot. This baby belongs to my friend, Jaelyn. She was 20 days old, and while that’s still a newborn, it’s just a tad too old to be doing the sleeping baby poses. She wouldn’t sleep and needed the pacifier for about half of the pictures. I am thankful that Jaelyn put up with me messing with her baby.
I was still using the 50mm lens and natural lighting. We did the shoot in Jaelyn’s office and I didn’t have much room to move around. It was a new challenge and I think I got some good ones.
This is a different basket than I used in my first shoot. I found it at the Nazarene Thrift Store for $5. It is the perfect size and is closer to the ground, which makes it easier for me to look down on it. I love it! This baby is a pretty good size already, about nine pounds, and she filled up the basket!
