Project 52 - Week 21

As I mentioned before, last week was incredibly busy.  But not with things that I would take pictures of.  Like a sick kid, two funerals, and Keira's spring concert in her dark school auditorium - just to name a few.  However, I did get a chance to stretch myself photographically on Friday with a newborn shoot.  I typically shoot outdoors but with a newborn, it is almost necessary to be inside.  Especially on a day when it doesn't quite hit 50 degrees.  I had a fun time preparing for this shoot ... buying fabrics and wraps.  Figuring out backdrops.  I didn't get to use all my ideas because babies don't always fully cooperate, but we did get some shots that I'm sure the mom will love.

I shared a couple in yesterday's Scavenger Hunt.  And here are a few more.

Tamara brought a few outfits for the baby.  We tried to get some sweet naked baby shots at first but quickly discovered that she much preferred being clothed.  So we worked with that.

This is the only shot I got of her wrapped in this scarf.  She didn't stay settled long enough.

I had told Tamara that if she wanted to be in any shots to wear either a plain black or white shirt.  Here the baby is wrapped in her blankie and is very content to sleep in Mama's arms.

I learned a lot during this shoot.  (Like I need elbow and knee pads if I'm going to be crawling around on our hard wood floors.)  And I look forward to getting more opportunities to stretch myself.  Photographically, that is.  :)
