Behind the scenes {baby session}

Here I go taking you behind the scenes of my latest session with Cohen. My setup was facing our windows, which I had opened to let in lots of natural light. I used the windows facing the north so I wouldn't get direct sunlight. I think this shot would have been cuter if we could have kept his arms together but he wouldn't have any of that. ;) With kiddos you take what you can get sometimes.

I placed a blanket in the back of the basket to protect his back and to make it cozy. And also out of sight of the camera.

The blanket used for the backdrop was bought at Kirklands. The basket was bought at Hobby Lobby and the sheepskin at IKEA. What you can't see is that I also had a space heater nearby. When you take the clothes off the babies you want them to stay warm. They will be a lot happier if they are warm!

  10. I love that you publish posts like this---SO HELPFUL :) Could you share what your camera settings are for this shot? I know, for kids your shutter speed should be at least 150, but I like to have the aperture at about 5.6 to get the face sharp. This usually leads to a higher ISO, if shooting indoors...
    THANKS!!!
