Squishy newborn shoot

Becky, my willing and cooperative maternity model from this shoot came back with her newborn baby boy and let me practice taking some shots with a squishy delectable newborn. He's about 2 weeks old in these pictures.

Things I learned: newborns DO take a long time to shoot, between the crying, sleeping, nursing, feeding, and all the resting inbetween. :) Also, use less slippery fabric around the boppy because the baby kept slipping down on the fabric I was using. I read somewhere that using a bean bag was best with newborns because it conformed the most to their little curved shape. Overall I was pretty happy with the shoot and learned lots about posing such small babies.

and now onto the picture sneak peek! :)
