    This little 12 day old fellow slept through 90% of the 2 hour session! He was marvelous and only peed on the easy to clean blankets - what a doll!

    Shame I wasn't as good as he was! I drew a complete blank throughout and forgot to even do any wraps (and I had practiced the night before. argh!). The mom and I were joking that he would probably have more photos taken that day then in his first year.

    Oh well, I got almost all 'face' shots and very few full body, but next time right?!

    Feel free to critique. If you want EXIF data on any/all just ask

    Beuller here...hee hee

    Gorgeous photos! You know you're really good. ;)

    The lighting, focus, exposure, etc. is all spot on. Especially love the shallow dof on the closeups. That really gives them a nice personal and emotional touch.

    I can't pick out any favorites because they are all wonderful. But I will say that the smile and his little oof bum make an especially interesting comp in #1. LOL

    Excellent as usual. Keep up the awesome work. :)

    Great work, as per usual.

    Were you using lights or natural/window light?

    They're perfect! Great job!

    I just did my first newborn a few weeks ago and I had the same thing happen...so many plans and ideas and all I really ended up with was close shots.

    Next time!

    WOW! That kid ahs some huge hands! He's adorable. Are babies like puppies with big paws, maybe he'll be tall. lol. I can't pick a favorite either though I think it would be number 1 for me if I was forced to. ;) They're all great. I havn't ever seen the idea with the heart and hands, THAT is awesome!
    What lens did you use if I may ask?
