When it comes to photographing my babies, I'm not a big fan of excessive props, weird body contorting positions, and bums sticking in the air (although those pictures are beautiful and those photographers have some incredible talent). The pictures that make this mama's heart sing are the ones that capture him. exactly. as. he is.
Give me some good light, a cozy baby, and my camera and I'm a happy girl.
By the way, these pictures were taken in our bedroom when I was supposed to be straightening up and folding laundry, but my baby was sleeping, the light was nice, and I'm easily distracted.
Never underestimate the power of a bit of good light.
