Meet Caleb and his mom Amy. They were among the mom's and babies that volunteered for the photo shoot. Isn't he a sweet baby?
Look at those rosy cheeks. One of the things I learned is that black and white makes a nice choice for baby photos, too, as it hides the ruddiness of their baby skin. Great tip!
I just love this little expression.
Caleb's mom Amy was so sweet. Look how photogenic she is.
Here's an example of a black and white photo I mentioned. It also works great if there are colors in the background and/or clothing that clash.
Amy and Caleb
Little baby feet...
Such blue eyes!
I edited the photos using iPhoto instead of Photoshop Elements. I really, really like iPhoto. I just wish I could save the edited images in low res for the web. Instead, I have to import them into PSE to do that.
This week, I upgraded my iPhoto to the latest version in iLife '11. It has some great new features. Can't beat viewing photos on the iMac screen either.
Besides Amy and Caleb, I also photographed two more moms and babies. More coming up soon!
