Newborn in B&W

Discussion in 'Formal Portraits and Weddings' started by Terri French, Sep 27, 2008.

  1. We decided to get out the studio equipment and attempt some photos of my week old grandson. We were hoping for some naked shots. The only problem is that he doesn't like having his clothes off. He just screamed. We decided that the diaper would have to stay and attempted to calm him enough for a shot or two. Here are the results.

    Mom didn't want her photo taken, but I couldn't resist when she tried to calm the baby.

    Wow, these turned out great. It's not easy I know. I took pics of my week old nephew and I found it's best right after feeding. :) 
  4. These are very nice Terri! Get the naked baby shots while he's sleeping...

    BTW, I'm going to need some tips on becoming a grandfather soon... :wink:
  5. Thanks, folks. BTW, we tried the photos right after feeding. And if he is sleeping and you try to take his clothes off, he just starts screaming. If you have the clothes off first, he won't go to sleep. We'll keep experimenting, but he really doesn't like his clothes off!!
  6. Jim,
    You'll be a natural. All you have to do is love them!! Treats and presents help, too!!
  7. This b&w of Jade and his mom is the money shot, Terri! I love it.

  8. Glad you liked it. It was just a shot I took as she tried to comfort the baby.

    Your daughter and the baby shot is just perfect.

    Terri - seeing as you have the C&C symbol up - on the conversions I notice that the whites of the babies eyes are a little grey - I know a lot of babies have slight jaundice that makes the eye whites less white.

    I also really like the second "crying" shot
