This was a great opportunity for me to experiment in my new studio. Zoe let me do this with her baby bump a couple of months ago with great success so we took the time again, this time with her new baby. Some experiments were successful and some where not. But that comes with the territory. You can't find new and exciting ways to shoot without finding a few bad ways too. I'm just greatful that the only mess we needed to clean up in the end was a little wee. It could have been a whole lot worse.
I had forgotten how easy it is to photograph newborns. They can't run or crawl away. They can't even roll away. And we were lucky enough to have very little crying. It was a joy.
Because baby was doing so well we were able to try a few things, with a break for feeding of course. She was a dream to work with. In fact, its hardly fair to call it work as it was so simple. Although I can't imagine it being this simple the next time Zoe comes back. But I am looking forward anyway.
