My Second Newborn Slept! Hoorah!

Wow! What a difference it makes when they are brand new and sleeping! The difference between a baby wide awake at 4 weeks and sleepy, bendy and 1 week is incredible.

I have decided now to start a facebook page for my photography. You can find me HERE if you are interested in having a look.

Super Cute and a bit Shocked!

I think there might have to be some flexibility when it comes to working with kids. Babies especially are so bewildered by the break in routine when they are brought out for photos at tea/dinner time or bath time or worse bed time! I love the wide eyed wonder. Anyone know any good jokes for babies?

When is the best light for portraits? No. 2

Tonight I went out a bit later. About 1/2 and hour later. I walked to 4 different locations in close proximity to each other. Varying results again. The sun drops so fast. I suppose that should be taken into consideration when thinking out the plan. I also think that the amount of sunlight getting into my camera is causing it to struggle to focus?? An additional thought: baby’s are hungry, tired and not into sitting for portraits at golden hour. I will need more experiments. These are from tonight’s haul.

What time of evening is best for portraits?

Well last night I took my baby on an excursion (again!). The idea was to work out at exactly which point in the skythe sun would be best for evening portraits or at least how it differed as the light changed. I was looking for how it affected my camera and its settings and of course the composition. I started way too early. I had harsh sun, my camera struggled and the sun flare was crazy intense. I managed to semi salvage a few photos. These are a couple.

I will try again tonight.

The Character Portrait

I didn’t mention earlier that my friend is, amongst many other things, FUNNY! She plays ‘characters’ constantly. Whether its at work or socially she is always talking, laughing and pulling faces. It was a miracle I was able to take any photos around the face pulling. Every time she thought the camera was about to click she would strike a facial pose! Hilarious. I love this portrait of her.
