Colleen and Faithlyn

It was such an incredible gift to do a photo shoot with my dear friend Colleen and her little baby Faithlyn. Faithlyn was born at only 27 weeks, and was just recently brought home from the NICU. At 7 lbs Colleen kept exclaiming, "She's so big!" That's not exactly what I was thinking :)















Thank you Colleen for this wonderful privilege - I hope that some of these pictures captured the beauty and intimacy between you and your little precious girl. I love you both.

Had to take another look through this great photo shoot. Love love the wedding ring on her toe, cupped in Mommy's hands. Love love Mommy's hands in a heart around her sweet baby's belly button connection (umbilical cord). Love love that pic with Faithlyn in her adorable hat looking straight at the camera. Oh, and every other photo... you had some great ideas and these photos are such a treasure for Mommy and baby!

My camera is a Canon 40D - a DSLR. I love love love this camera! The key, though is the LENSE. It's a 50 mm 1.4 f lens; so it allows for the high depth of field (blurry backgrounds). I used my Manual settings to play with the exposure and shutter speeds as a went. The other key was the NATURAL LIGHT. I have a soft white transparent curtain over a big window, which allows for lots of great diffused lighting (minimized shadows).
Things I learned in this photo shoot: need to move the subjects further away from the black sheets. This would have helped to make the black sheets in the background less visible and more purely black...
TFL!
