I'm really pleased with how this shoot came out. Isla is so darn cute, I just can't! I've been wanting to start a small photography business with a focus on infants. This wiggle worm is the perfect model. Those baby blues are so intense! I keep saying this but seriously we've really lucked out with all this wonderful warm weather. Because of that I was able to take her outside on my withered deck.
This little girl, who was 11 weeks, (now 12 weeks) has discovered her tongue. It just cracks me up seeing her stick it out. Half her shoot was her showing off that pointy tongue. I think that's what is so exciting about infant photography, you never know what you will get. Even in the moment when you have a vision on how things will turn out, it's usually completely different. I had wanted to swaddle Isla's arms but she is a wiggly one and doesn't like to be pinned down. Being outside helped a great deal. She just looked up at the sky and anything that moved into her view.
This shoot was inspired by the many versions I found on Pinterest. I wanted something fall themed and this idea grabbed me the most. We bought a 13 pound bag of candy corn from Sam's and let me tell you, it was sooooo hard not to crack open that bag before this shoot! My brother made a point to tell me that although these photos were adorable, it was such a shame to waste so much candy. I think it was well worth it for this cutie. Plus we totally kept all the candy in the basket. Our dogs eagerly made an effort to steal the rest.
Does anyone have any tips for getting sharper images on blogger? It's my one peeve about sharing photos on here. Sharp on the computer and fuzzy on this blog. I've tried using .png and setting blogger not to alter my images but they still blur a bit... Anyhoo, more photos to come soon! Xoxo!
Take Care & Enjoy,
