Baby Photography

For those of you that are avid Harris Blog readers, you might remember me saying I wanted to learn to photograph babies like Kelley Ryden (whose sister, Tracy, was featured on the Today show last week, btw). Well, Amber was over one day and we had a few extra minutes so we tried some pictures of her 6 month old Lily. I'm still trying to work out how to get the lighting just right indoors, and the backgrounds to work, and the baskets to stay still, not to mention the baby (hehe), and the list goes on, but here are a few favorites. If anyone has babies they'd like to donate to the cause, let me know!

I messed around with this one in Photoshop and added an overlay to the background.
What do you think comparatively?

I love her expression in this one!

I like the overlay, but it blends the baby in too much. I love how you can use light and different shades to bring her eyes out. Pretty good!!

I love them, totally cute, you're amazing. And what lucky kids with that play house.

I don't like the overlay but I thought you executed it well. Does that make sense?

You can use my baby when he is born but no baskets! Babies in baskets kind of freak me out...
