Well this was my first baby shoot. Her names Trinity. i used natural light, threw a bed sheet over a chair and sat her down in it. It was an experience trying to keep her eyes looking at the camera, and she kept doing this krinkly nose thing. I only kept 5 out of the 40 something shots i took, but im pleased with them. This is a family friends daughter and i was doing it for fun/experience, so have at me

Nice job! I like numbers three and five the best. The nose thing is just her being a kid!

I think these are great, next time watch out for chopping hands in half, I prefere them in or out of the shot.
also check your WB and watch out for blown highlights.

The fact that you were able to have her look straight at the camera is amazing in itself! Great shots...what did you do with the parents? I find that when doing shots of children the parents' can be somewhat of a distraction. What is your secret?

well like i said, she is the daughter of a family friend, and ive had time in the past to develop a bond with her, so she wasnt unfamiliar with me. With the parents, i had them stand behind me wherever i moved and had them talk to her. She would hear their voices and look my way, and i would snap a frame. there were many many shots where she wasnt looking at the camera though

Her little smirk there is so cute! Her parents do this thing where they go "Trinity can you flirt?" and she does that little smirk and batts her eyelashes. its sooooo cute
