It's hard to believe the weeks are just trickling by. Isla is 1 week old in these photos and she's already grown so much since then. I've never done infant photography. I've usually hired someone else to photograph my older girls. This was such a fun but challenging experience. Isla is a wiggly baby, even when she sleeps. You have to have a lot of patience capturing a baby. I'd get her posed, grab my camera and she'd stretch. In the future I hope to have Jedidiah's aid. With these photos I had Piper's help but she's 8 and just as wiggly. Piper is an amazing big sister however (we don't say middle sister) and loves to help with anything involving Isla.
I've yet to get my birthing photos back, we hired someone to help alleviate the stress. I'm so excited to see them but until those come back I wanted to share these and sort of get back into blogging again. Pregnancy really drained me and I didn't like sitting at my computer desk. I suppose I could have used my laptop to sit somewhere more comfortable but I'm pretty old school and prefer my pc to my laptop any day. Do you have a preference, PC or laptop?
I don't want to share too much right now. I had really hoped to have my birthing photos out before these but I was too excited to wait. These photos have inspired me to give infant photography a try. I usually get extremely nervous taking photos for others but I'm going to give it a try. I'll never get over this stage fright if I don't just jump in. If you live in the Colorado Springs area and have a newborn you'd like photographed for free (for a limited time) please contact me.
More posts coming soon! Till then take care & enjoy!

P.S. For those of you who aren't sure, Isla is pronounced: Eye-La ♥
