    Hi All,
    Had an awesome time yesterday shooting two newborns who were born just 5 days apart. These two Bubs are cousins to each other and have made their Mums, who are sisters, very happy.

    It was smiles, sleep, nappy changes and a lovely Saturday morning for this shoot. Haven't been home much this weekend, so Ive only edited three that i used to show their parents - More to come later.

    All shot with the Canon 50mm f/1.4 @ f/2.0 or f/7.1.

    Cheers :D

    The contrast and warmth is a tad strong for me. But I'm one of those weird low-contrast people.

    I'm terrified of little ones. This stuff is so good. Any parent (and total strangers like me) will love these and cherish these memories forever.

    Thank You all :D

    I love this type of work! Portraits in general, especially baby ones.
    Babies and the little guys are scary because they are unpredictable. Their mood tends to dictate what sort shoot you will have. And there is very little you can do about it. Besides, a posed and predicable model at the age of 2 is hardly natural anyway. Its fun to just let them be, but in the scene that you set for them.

    Im very happy with the lens. Sure its not a bokeh monster, but its consistent and I know what to expect each time. The size and weight are a big bonus too!

    I would be happy to trade my couples for any babies you can throw my way! In fact I only have one couple booked for this entire year, the rest are family and kiddies :D

    WOW COW!!! Yes, Now? Sure lets go! You know I'm here almost every day, Hit me up when you are in town.

    Appreciate the support ay.

    Last shot :thumbup:

    I saw the first two, and thought, "they're nice, but similar to a lot of stuff I've seen." (Not meant as negative crit, btw - they are both good) And then I saw the last shot. Great stuff there.

    Yeah these are naturally lit. I have a softbox on hand just in case lighting at the location is no good. I'm yet to use it though. Been getting by with ambient and a reflector for now.
