i heart faces ~ babies



This week's photo challenge at i heart faces is all about babies! There are so many incredibly talented photographers out there, and the baby market is infused with amazing photography and art. I love browsing through the professional galleries and being inspired by the poses, the lighting, the processing, but most of all... the beautiful babies!

This is a sweet little baby that used to live in our neighborhood. When she was three months old, her mom said I could take some photos of her as I was trying to learn to use my camera off the auto settings. There was so much I did wrong in that session! Lighting, ISO settings, oy! But I connected with this baby, and that filled up something in my soul I didn't know was missing. I took over 600 shots of her in the space of a couple of hours and several ended up being quite good. I just love the eye contact in this photo and the processing too. I still have so much to learn, but this session is what really sparked my initial passion for learning more about photography.



Thanks for letting me share!
