Yesterday Sam turned one month old. I thought I’d better try to get some newborn style type shots of him before he gets too much older. Here are some of my favorites.
I had fun editing the photos in photoshop. My babies skin is always so red looking. Is that how it is with all newborns? I tried making him look more natural and creamy looking but it made the white blankets look creamy too. I never know if I overdo it in photoshop.
I started with him awake and naked like the pros do but he wasn’t too happy about it and I couldn’t get very good shots.
So then I swaddled him up real good, feed him well, got him asleep and plopped him down in front of the window for some good light.
He was surprisingly compliant and I wondered why I hadn’t tried this before. I even captured some cute little sleep smiles.
This one is a full on grin. What could he possibly be dreaming about? creamy milk?
I am not a photographer but I certainly have fun trying to be.
I don’t have a fancy camera so I just used my iphone. I’m sure the quality is not as good as it should be but what can I do about that? I don’t have an extra $500+ sitting around. I’m not even sure where my point and shoot is anyway.
What a sweet boy. Love you Sam.
