Newborn Shoot

Yesterday I finally got around to taking some newborn pictures of Christian. I have to tell you I am thrilled with how they turned out! Christian has been sleeping like crazy but for the past 2 days he has been more and more awake and of course he refused to go to sleep for the pictures. I waited and waited all day but no sleeping. Finally I tried drastic measures, getting him totally naked (a risk I was willing to take and hoping wouldn't backfire), and rocking and feeding him until he couldn't resist any more. Then time for the pictures. My sister sent me two beanie hats for him, an owl and a football and I had to use both. He is so sweet. He has great skin color so I barely had to do any editing which makes everything easier. Here is how they turned out:

He is so beautiful I had a hard time deciding which ones to print and which one to use on his announcement. I love them all.

Here are some great tutorials on how to set up a newborn shoot in your own home.
