I’ve never done a newborn shoot before. I’ve read articles on how-to, studied endless shots online, and purchased some items in preparation for the shoot of my granddaughter. WOW! I have so much respect for the newborn photog pros! It is SO NOT easy to shoot a newborn. The first go around, Brielle was totally awake. I did a set up of various props I’d been collecting. I didn’t get the look I was going for at all. So after I gave up to do the shoot a different day, she decided to fall asleep after we’d gotten her dressed. So of course I had to slay the inner-beast-obsession I have with getting the perfect shot! I think I got it. I love this image of her! I used Kim Klassen’s textures: perfectly pink & mayzee to get a little more of the look that’s my style. Love it. Love her.
The minute I held this little angel, all my fears of being a “grandma” disappeared. She is heaven on earth. I’m so happy we have her in our lives. So I’m still young and a grandma. Who cares? I adore my children and now my grandchild as well! At the end of the day, family is all that matters.
