When I first got my camera, many of my friends were having babies. So, I took photos of a few, but Baby A was the first try at getting portrait like shots. They were rough, but she was cute, so really that counts for everything. Here's one of those early shots - coloring, lighting and focus all wrong.
This weekend we tried again with a toddler A. And even though she wasn't really in the mood, I think we got a few great shots. She was pretty entertaining and there was no crying, so I call that a win.
Ok this pose - totally spontaneous and adorable.
All of these from the weekend are adjusted with Pioneer Woman's actions - love those!
The one above was taken from a pretty good distance and then cropped in. She was getting tired of playing model and was running around the garden area. I just kept shooting and got a few nice ones.
Here she was sitting with Mom, but I loved the head shot so much,
I edited it to just her. Mom gets to be in the next one, on the bench.
And finally, the look that indicates we are done with the camera for today - Ha!
I hope you enjoyed attempt two of the adorable photo shoot. I do see great progress in the final shots and Mom and I think if we do it with a little more frequency, she'll get used to it and be more comfortable. She's pretty great with people in general, but after a long day it can be hard.
