With my confinement being over and having so many newborns all around me, I just can’t help but ask a few of my friends if they wanted their babies’ picture taken. The photography itch is back.
This latest photoshoot was done last Saturday (20th September) with baby YuQi at 19 days. While we were there, we also snapped a few picture of the oh-so-cute sister of hers, YuYi. Armed with some props dug from home, I once again went with my partner in
crime newborn shoots, Jazzmint. This time we had more props than before, as Jazz brought a basket and a red bag (as seen in the photo above) which were both usable. Love the outcome of this shoot!
Normally, I would prefer to take pictures of the newborns when they are 14 days or less, as they tend to sleep better and let us put them in all kinds of positions since their bodies are still so soft. But like I said, there are so many babies being born and taking into consideration that some might need photo therapy (pun intended :P), we mostly ended up taking their pictures at more than 2 weeks old unlike the first one I ever did for Baby Lyan Fung with him being 8 days old. Moreover, I’m in confinement and will soon be back to work. Jazzmint is also working and we only ever slot in these sessions on weekends or public holidays.
So far, we have another 2 shoots lined up. Now if I can just get my hands on something I’ve been eyeing — Canon 580EX II Speedlite TTL and the Tamron AF 28-75mm f/2.8.
So, anyone else want a photoshoot for their newborn?
