Max is almost 3 weeks old, and we have been trying to schedule a newborn session with a local photographer, due to me winning a mini session a while back, and life has been getting in the way. We will have our session next week, so fingers crossed.
Normally we ask my SIL to take the pictures, because she has a great DSLR camera, has an eye for it, and likes to do it. She has 3 kids though, and one of them just had his b-day party today. Plus she made us a bunch of food last weekend. So, again finding time between our schedule, and hers, hasnt’ happened.
However, I have been itching to get Max’s baptism invites out ASAP, since it’s at the end of this month. Today, I asked Joe if he’d help me stage a home photo shoot with my “point & shoot” camera. He agreed, and we have some really fun ones to share.
**** On a side note, and because of the title, when we ordered the baptism invites, and picked them up, I was asked to show a photo release since I used a professional photo. I told them it was all me and the lady said I should start a business. I don’t think I’d go that far, but she still made my day. Hopefully, someday when I get a DSLR, I will actually take some pretty rad pictures. Till then though, here’s our mini-home session……..
**Ironically this first photo was just quickly snapped to check the amount of light I was getting.
It ended up being the one we used for his baptism invite.
