Another image from a newborn shot I did yesterday. This baby girl has me spoiled. I swear by newborn shots between birth and two weeks....they sleep (well, most of them), and are sooo cooperative! She was just a joy to photograph.

f8; 1/400th; 50mm; natural light combined with one strobe. Converted to B&W in PSCS2.

So that's the secret! (catch them before 2 weeks) I did my first newborn shoot and she was 3 weeks, didn't sleep for a second and never stopped moving. Beautiful image.

Love this image. Love the softness on mom's face, so that the focus is on baby. Very tender!

Beautiful capture Deb! My last newborn shoot was with a 6 day old and he didn't sleep at all. Was very happy, but very active, lol. This is wonderful, love the softness!

Beautiful capture, Deb. I love it when my own son falls asleep on me like this. You must have a special talent... my son is almost 6wks now and I still havn't been able to get him to sleep through a photo shoot.
