    Really love #1!
    # 4,5, and 7 are also up there as faves.
    Great lighting, posing, etc on everything, really.:thumbup:

    Couple thoughts on these 2 shots:

    #2---The fact that there are only 3 hands (instead of a pair, or two pairs) in the shot really jarred my brain...it automatically registered as "not right".

    #3---Though I know what you were going for here, there is that element of "baby going out in the garbage bag" thing happening...which I'm pretty sure you didn't intend . (Now, I might have a stork photo you could Photoshop in there, to make it look like the baby is being carried in it's beak :D)

    These 2 might just be my brain overreacting, but those were my initial thoughts, anyway!

    Great job over-all!

    1 is outstanding... the rest of the set is great too- except for the tulle shot. I'm def not a fan of that one. But the rest are amazing!

    I agree, I like them all except for the 3rd one even though I know you don't mean the way the picture portrays.

    Wow....some very good shots. I love number 1. So much detail and beautiful capture to see the baby so peaceful (we all know they're not always like that).

    I agree on number 3 with the other people. While I'm sure it didn't hurt the baby at all,......it appears borderline abusive or, as others have said, like the baby is being taken to the trash.

    Beautiful shots!

    #3 - Love the idea here. I've seen this shot done many times before. I believe the tulle is longer and the hand is not usually in the picture.

    What equipment do you use? Lighting.. flash, etc?

    To me, that tuell one represents how the baby was inside mommy only days earlier. The other ideas I only read about, but they were not my immediate association.
    I also like the last, for that also represents somehow how baby was only days before. (I used to marvel at the fact that that tiny, but perfect little person could have fitted inside me only a day earlier when mine were only just born! That's maybe why I like see the "before" situation represented in newborn photos).

    The idea on number 3 is the one that gets me most customers of my newborn sessions...Everyone seems to love it, and hey, I dont blame them. I sometimes use the blue or pink, but white deff. works better. You did a great job on these !

    Thanks everyone!
    Well I can't say I am shocked about the comments on #3. I think you either love or hate the shot in tulle look. I must say though Parents seem to love it.
    #2 I know what you mean about the hand. I saw that afterward and had a "note to self" one of each hand next time! Thanks though for also pointing it out!

    #3. I see what you all are saying. I personally do like the shot and i do think the baby is quite comforatable and does not borderline abuse at all! That is how baby was just 1 week ago, and babies are most comfortable feeling like they are back in the womb.
    I was going to digitally add in a ribbon/bow to it after, but have not got around to it. Maybe that would be more appealing. I love the idea of the stork too!

    As for my setup etc.
    Canon 30D
    24-105 USM lens
    50mm 1.4
    speedlite 580EX II
    huge window providing natural light...
    large black blanket for black backdrop

    I really like the last one. I agree with a lot of the comments about the hands and the tulle, but hey... if the parents like it...
