Christmas Photo Shoot

I am so in love with this baby and so in love with my new Christmas backdrop and props. I had so much fun with this one. I made 3 new hats for the occasion. Can I just say I love my job!!!!This is my friend Dottie and her new baby C. He was a dream to work with. Even when he was hungry he kept his eyes closed for me. It was really hard choosing my favorite shots on this one.
I am going to try and do some pull back shots on some of my photo shoots from now on. There are several things that are unique about this photo shoot. First off I finally made a back drop stand!!! Yippy!!! It was super simple I will try and get a shot of just the stand someday. It was less than $15 to make. Why I waited so long I will never know. The second thing that was unique about this photo shoot was that my friend had a trampoline which was perfect to put the baby on so I didn't have to lie down on the ground. I guess I am going to have to invest in a beanbag or something like it for other houses.
So here are some things I learned while doing this one. 1. make sure your backdrops are ironed. It was crazy hard to try and Photoshop it out (although I did learn a few new things about Photoshop in the process). 2. I love the tree branch but I am so mad I didn't think to get white lights on a white strand. Back to the store I go :0/ 3. No matter how stable you think the baby is always have mom there just in case. Baby C decided to throw his head out of the box while I turned around to grab my camera. Good thing momma was there.
