Long awaited Marlee is here... my cousin's new baby girl. It's my first attempt at newborn shots. Didn't go quite as well as I thought. I have NO IDEA how photographers shape babies into those cute positions... we tried... didn't exactly work. Soo I just took some pictures of her laying in a blanket. Lighting also didn't work the way I wanted... the two B&W shots just didn't have enough light. We tried again later as the window had more light but Marlee thought it was much too bright in the room and was grumpy as you can see in the colored photo. Well anyway... after all that I think these are my favorites. Any comments and critique are welcome... as I have plenty more chances to photograph this little one. EDIT: Now that I look, the last photo has some noise. I did quite a bit of lightening to it in PS... that's probably why.
