2 day old newborn squishiness!!!

Yes..... 2 days!!!! His mom is supermom, BTW. 2 days after having this precious bundle she was up for me invading her house and taking pictures, was looking after 2 of her other children AND 2 dayhome children. If that does not say supermom I would be SHOCKED!
Now little man C also fell for the heating pad..... he thought about putting up a fight and not sleeping, but that heating pad is just magical! Even though the house was already hot like a furnace! My friend S was just about to pass out in the heat I think :)
This was a more challenging shoot to me. My fav lens is in the shop, so I had to use my 50. Which is a fantastic lens, but as multiple other posts have said - it requires more room. Which I didn't have the luxury of. (I normally don't as I shoot natural light and need to be close to windows)
However... I am so happy with the turnout! He is just so cute and looks so snuggly. Enjoy!

This shot is very interesting. He is laying in a belly cast my friend had done when she was preg. Although I had read up on and checked out photos of how to take baby and belly cast shots I was not prepared!!! I had no idea what the cast would be like and it took a little bit ti figure it out. When we were looking at the cast we were wondering just HOW he fit in it. Well... once we set him in there on a blanket he just curled up and snuggled in. We tried moving him a little to get more of his face in the pic - but he had found his sweet spot and was totally curled into it. It was very cool to see just how he fit in there, and I love the pic! I wanted to put a couple's just a neat idea!

I have seen and heard the term 'emotionally in focus' and this pic falls into it in my opinion!!! My camera settings and angles were not set up to take a pic at this moment.... but how can you not LOVE this!!!!

trying out a few hazy pics with textures.... just love it!
