I photographed my first newborn yesterday … isn’t she adorable! The natural light in my studio is perfect for babies … soft, diffused light coming through a nice big window. We had lots of fun and it was a great experience. The toughest thing is the posing … babies pretty much do what they want, but there are ways to position them for photos. It would be awesome to take a class on this, or even just get a good newborn-specific photography book (any recommendations out there?) I can totally see myself doing more of these in the future. :)
