Tiny life

I had the privilege of photographing this precious one week old baby today. I was busy with her for an hour and a half and she was wide awake the entire time! I have never seen such an alert newborn - and oh, so beautiful. And look at that amazing head of hair!

I took the first few with my new Canon and 50mm lens in natural light, more to just play around and test the camera's ability. I am soooo impressed (I know, I've said that before - get ready to hear it about 50 more times). I still don't have perfect control with the camera but am still amazed at the results - such awesome DOF!







And then we moved over to the studio with my old camera which I'm still more comfortable with.

Lovely baby shots! I was thinking earlier this week how I didn't take enough photos like this of my son when he was newborn, now nearly 4. Very nice.

Karin, awesome set of photos. You have really found your calling. They are great. New camera, yada yada yada... As long as the photos stay excellent, I don't mind hearing about the new camera over and over and over and ...

Now that head of hear must have been a heartburn nightmare.
