Not long after I did the previous baby portrait session, I was back doing another. Again, it was a cold winter day, but this time, the mom had prepared by heating the kitchen to tropical temperatures. A bedroom probably would have been easier for me as the photographer, but it’s not about me. It’s my job to adapt to the situation, and the kitchen was the warmest room in the house. We needed it warm, because we wanted some pictures of the baby when she wasn’t all bundled up in blankets and wool sweaters.
I think the baby enjoyed the experience. She was alert and in a good mood. She also moved her arms a lot and posed like a model.
Eventually the baby started getting a bit tired, and the hands and feet slowed down. I took the opportunity to take some close ups of those adorable tiny hands and feet.
With my favorite shot, I decided to play around a bit and emphasize the baby’s beautiful dark blue eyes.
