I Heart Faces - Babies

I haven't participated in I Heart Faces in a while...I've been busy with moving and other things and just blogging for family and friends has been hard at times, much less getting involved in a photography blog!

This week, however, is a different story! This week's challenge is all about BABIES! I have been drawn to newborn photography for a while, but expecting our third baby boy has fueled this even moreso lately. So, when my friend, Laura had her baby boy soon after we moved into the area, I begged her to let me take his pictures!

I am not a professional by any means. I'm just a girl with a camera habit. :-) No classes taken, no workshops attended, but a lot of surfing the internet and stalking photographers that DO know what they are doing! Heck, I don't even have Photoshop!

So, here's the photo. It was really hard to pick because I am happy with so many of them, but I love how content and sweet he looks in this picture.


I just want to say that newborns are HARD! They may look easy because it looks like they just lay there, but I worked my butt off and was sweating a lot by the time I was done. It was fun though! Anthony is so cute and I'm glad I got to document this time for his parents. They grow so much in that first year and it's always so hard to believe they were this little at one time.
