I was really disappointed in myself that I didn’t bring Lucas to do some newborn photography and our house is a disaster. There’s no room to take photos. I had bought some newborn photography equipment but never got around to use it cos I just didn’t know how to set it up well.
But, Lucas was getting bigger by the day and I was also pretty jealous every time I logged on Etsy because all the favourites of the newborn equipment along with the beautiful photos made me feel quite bad cos it kept reminding me that I wasn’t able to take the photos. I just thought I’d try my luck and I did it!
Lucas’ 6 Week Old Photography
He cooperated so amazingly here.
I had to get up on a ladder and it made me almost shit my pants in fear but I did it!
So cute and sleepy!
Now the following is a pose I’ve forever wanted and didn’t think I could ever get, as he’s always squirmy in this position, but because I got him at 9am when he’s sleepy, he just slept through the whole thing.
So the tip here is to get babies in their sleepy period.
That’s usually in the morning, when they’re the calmest and sleepiest, I find.
I just can’t believe I pulled it off! Of course, photoshopping these was another challenge because I had to edit out a lot of things as I didn’t even have a good backdrop for a couple of the images. But, photoshop is a live saver.
I’m almost thinking of getting into photography but it’s gonna be a challenging start. I know I can do it, I know in my heart I can take photos just as great as any photographers, but it’s the equipement that’s the hardest to get, as that cost a lot! But, I’m still gonna try!
