Beautiful Baby

Mom and Babe Shy
As promised, here are a few of the photos from my first baby shoot.
With a crazy busy week, I've just started the editing process.
And here are a few of the photo's that are done.

Isn't mama beautiful?
This shot was just a happy accident.
It wasn't planned at all.

The lighting was perfect as she started to get ready to leave, 
so we took a few quick clicks.
And it ended up being my favourite shot of the afternoon.

Thinking Shy shoot
Don't let his relaxed pose fool you,
the little mister worked so hard giving us all of these wonderful shots.
He taught me so much about a newborn shoot.

Shy shoot Black and white
We here at Bungalow'56 thought he was a perfect angel.
And I think you can see why.

These are still my favourite little piggies.
There is nothing better than downloading pictures and finding some special ones like this.

I can't wait to capture many more itty bitty fingers and toes.
I am looking forward to learning with each and every one!

But in all seriousness....
couldn't you just eat them up?


This post will be linking up with My3Boybarians Sweet Shot Tuesday.
