Baby 'B' Preview

When it rains, it pours. I haven't had anybody ask me to take pictures for them for a while. Then, in one week, I've had 3 calls for families. Crazy! I couldn't decide at first if I was up for it, but then decided "Heck(that's right...I'm from Utah), why not?" I am very happy that I did. I learn something new every time.
The first session was with a 2-week old baby boy whose family lives in my neighborhood. We had to break it into two separate sessions because little 'B' got tired of us messing with him, then decided he was hungry. It worked out really well though and I am excited to get the rest of the shots processed. Here are a couple of previews.
By the way, does anybody out there want to give me directions on how to put text on a photo that is to be posted? I knew how to do this in Elements, but am wondering if it is possible in Lightroom. Also, when I post the coloring on the blog looks different (less vibrant) than it does in Lightroom. Does anybody know why this is? If you know how to fix either of these, please fill me in. Thanks!

These are adorable! It makes me excited for my own little one to get here. You're likely to get another request for newborn pics soon, I'm afraid!

Cute pictures! Do you want to do a watermark or just straight text?

these are really cute.

There are a couple of ways you can approach adding text to the photo in lightroom. Also the color issue is a monitor calibration issue.

I'll send you my phone number and we can chat about theses issues. That will be the easiest way by far.

Good work once again. I wish I had newborn photos of my kids that actually are cute! We took Paige at a couple weeks to kiddie kandids, they tried to get her to sit up! The lady would hold her so tight and then quickly let go before the inevitable face plant. In every picture Paige has big red fingerprint marks on her tummy..can we say canned photo??
