i took some baby pictures

So I shared the other day that I am really into photography and am loving my new camera. Well, I guess it's not new, since I've had it almost a year. But I still think of it like that.

Anyway, my friend Mandy had a little over two weeks ago and I told her I wanted to come and do some newborn shots of Eli. We also brought Mandy and her husband Brandon some dinner at the same time. I brought a few props along with me and Mandy had a couple of her own things own, so we pulled a table up to the window and stripped Eli down to his diaper. I must have taken about 100 or so pictures. and little Eli was such a trouper.

We took some shots with this bear pretending to be a bunny in anticipation of Easter.

Hands and feet, how cute!

With his bear hooded towel.

We got a couple of little smiles from him, although I guess he might be too young for that.

With the hooded towel again. Isn't he the most adorable thing? He was such a good model and was in good spirits the whole time. I think these pictures turned out really well, and was proud of the result. It only gives me more practice for when I bring home a baby, and can take pictures for me!

Very sweet shots! My favorite is of mommy's hands holding baby's feet. They'll adore that one too!

What great pictures!
Caroline has a bear that my dad bought her when she was born; I keep an old pair of Easter bunny ears on the bear, just like in your picture. How funny!
