Given that I had never shot a baby before in my life before today, I think these came out remarkably well :o  I'm so pleased with them, ahhhhh!  I'm being really bad, I'm still not done editing my last batch but I COULDN'T RESIST doing just a few of these omg.  This is my friend's week-old baby girl :)

 

We did all of them in her house using nothing but a regular floor lamp, some paper towels and tape, and whatever we had lying around - blankets, a basket, etc.

 

edit: LOL just noticed all of these are her lying facing the right... there's more variety in a lot of the others, I swear! XD

Beautiful!  Though I was expecting foals!  :)  Obviously didn't read the category title!

Talk about timing!  I just did my own first newborn shoot as well on Sunday.  My little cowboy was a little older (which made for a little more difficult session!!) and he sure didn't want to cooperate.  Love your shots!  Think I'll stick to landscapes!!! Here's one from my session:

Thank you guys!!!! <3  Eeee!

 

dowedoit, LOL, foals would be more my usual style personally ;) 

 

cvm, that is ADORABLE.  And YES, I imagine it WOULD be much harder when they're old enough to stay awake and squirm around!!  One of my friends asked if I learned anything (photographically) doing this shoot... I said I didn't encounter any new photographic challenges but did learn some things about BABIES, one being that newborns will sleep through almost ANYTHING, LOL.  She'd get mad when we repositioned her and mom would just pet her and shush her for a sec and she'd just go back to sleep and we'd take more pictures :P

The middle picture was taken on that blanket - for the others we just moved my lamp+"softbox" (paper towels taped over the bowl) around as needed :P

 

edit - one more from the blanket studio, looool
