My Niece – 5 Weeks Already

26 Apr

This past weekend I spent the afternoon photographing my niece, Aria.  Several hundred photos later (so glad we live in the digital age), and this is by far my favourite.

She is such a sweet angel.

    STUNNING photo Tracey! Maybe I’ll have to have you come down here when I have my last baby as you appear to have a knack with photography!! She is just beautiful…

      The key is to take a LOT of photos. Out of a couple of hundred, odds have to be in your favour of getting a couple of goodies. Also I used only natural light (I set up right in front of a window) and I got in close and took photos from lots of angles. Also look for little details like positioning the hands. Plus it helped that she was asleep. My ‘awake’ photos were awful! Well I thought so. I’m keen to try again once I can get her to smile for me. Oh and I love the digital age. I tried the same thing for my own little cherubs but I only got a couple of chances as film and processing was so expensive.
