New Family is Sweet

IMG_6183
One of my favorites from baby Eva’s newborn session.

“I think people sometimes get stressed out when they have a newborn and an infant. Try to enjoy it because the time is so fleeting, and soon enough, they’ll be running around and be more independent. You’re going to miss that time.”

~Sara Gilbert

I know this amazing little family will treasure the time they get with their precious firstborn. But I also believe that each child you have can make for an even sweeter experience. But there’s something about that first baby…

“’I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him.  So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.” And he worshiped the Lord there.'”

~1 Samuel 1:27–28

Love Celebrated in a Newborn

“Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him.
Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth.
Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.”
~Psalm 127:3-5a

I got the opportunity to photograph this beautiful baby girl this week. She is two weeks old, and so cute. It was an experience for sure, and an experience I will always treasure. This is the first session I have done of a newborn so far, and it is definitely something I will look into doing in the future. It is such a blessing to get to document a part of a new life so anticipated and beautiful.

Beautiful Inside

IMG_5556.JPG

“Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.”

~1 Peter 3:3-4

I found out just yesterday that my office’s light isn’t awful, after all! I was so pleased. I had my model hold a white dry erase board so that the light from the room would reflect. All that was left was to set a custom white balance and get my exposure correct. I am pleased with the result, though it is far from perfect.

“I walk this road alone And always, I wish that you could see. That I am afraid of being who I am. I don’t want to disappoint you.

It’s clear now we can get along. You’ve felt like me before, ignored And every word is wrong.

I know who I’m supposed to be. It’s never been that easy to be someone like me. I feel there’s nothing we should hide We’re full of love and understanding, beautiful inside.

I’m holding on and I am brave As it gets easier to breathe. I can face today. Where no one’s left behind and no one’s left for wanting.

It’s clear now we can get along. You’ve felt like me before, ignored And every word is wrong.

I know who I’m supposed to be. It’s never been that easy to be someone like me. I feel there’s nothing we should hide. We’re full of love and understanding, beautiful inside.

And I know how you hold your feelings. And I know you. I know we can believe.

It’s clear now we can get along. You’ve felt like me before, ignored And every word is wrong.

I know who I’m supposed to be. It’s never been that easy to be someone like me. I feel there’s nothing we should hide We’re full of love and understanding, beautiful inside.

This is what happened when I put a pink filter on my lens.

And this was my setup (plus a normal desk lamp for lighting)…

Y’all don’t need lots of money or space for this project at all. See how easy this can be?

Complementary Colors

Another project that I did just recently was to see the harmony between complementary colors. These aren’t AMAZING photographs (not that I ever take amazing photographs 🙂 ) but they are pleasing because of the harmony between colors.

Not an amazing photo (but look at the colors, people!).
