Colin's turned into a bit of a screamer. this has interfered with many a plan thus far. 1) going to girl's camp, 2) getting that ever lovin' naked baby portrait. part of the problem is that though i'm a photographer, i am also a new mom and too exhausted to put up with his screams, just for a silly picture. i should have called in a second shooter. but i think i got some good clothed shots that i'll be happy with in exchange for my sanity.
i got a new basket to try, again i couldn't be bothered to take off his clothes, or to wait until the morning to get better lighting.
i love that he gave me some awake and some sleepy shots.
i even let the girls turn the camera on me. a bold move given my no make-up face, overweight body and huge exhausted bags under my eyes. but i think these are the only pics of me and my son since we left the hospital! (and i think cropping and photoshop did an okay job with these.)
awe, this post is so much more peaceful than my actual life right now. but since he is my fourth, i know it won't last forever. i'm still basking in the glow of a newborn, albeit a screaming one!
