A Little Pinspiration

I’ve tried a lot of Pinterest ideas and usually my attempts at being cute and crafty result in an epic fail… but this time a cousin of mine sent me a photography idea so I thought, why not? I’ve been saving for a professional camera so I’ve been getting all the practice I can get lately, and it also helps that there’s a lot of cute babies in my family to take pictures of right now.

My baby, Reagan, was a honeymoon baby so I thought this idea was absolutely perfect for her. It took a lot of calming and re-swaddling go get her to fall asleep just the way I needed her to but the results were worth it!

Here is the shot that took at least 40 minutes to get.

It’s crazy how fast they grow, so I might be a little picture happy lately but I’m beyond happy to capture every moment I can of my baby girl.

Not Too Shabby – My First Amateur Photography Attempts

I’ve always loved taking product photos for my clients but recently I began practicing my photography skills on just about anyone that will allow me to take their picture. My sister asked me to take some baby pictures of my nephew, Clark, so I of course agreed. Not only do I love babies but I was excited for the chance to practice my shooting and editing skills. Now I know I’m far from being an expert, but I was really happy with how the pictures turned out so I thought I’d share my favorites. I’ve found a local printer but I would love to know from the other amateur photographers out there, who do you use for your printing services? I know there’s a lot of big names out there but I was skeptical of ordering a bunch of prints online and I want to get my sister the best deal possible. I’d love your feedback!
