Now that I’ve found a room in the house that gets decent sunlight I’m experimenting with photography. Ashley was a most excellent model for me
Great pics! I stink at photography and do not have good natural light coming in my house. My house is a ranch style built in 1983 and it just was not set up to let a lot of light in.
so soft and pretty
Same, there is literally no sunlight coming in my house, EXCEPT for fleeting times in the day at certain places, like my daughter’s bedroom lol.
May I provide constrictive criticism?
OK, take it with a grain of salt, as I am not the best photographer
While your vintage chair look so adorable, I think it wasn’t the greatest prop to photograph a sleeping preemie-sized baby. I understand it’s a doll, but sleeping baby just doesn’t look natural in that position, unless it’s an older baby who can sit and accidentally fall asleep while sitting. If you would use a basket that would be great!
Disclaimer: I do photograph sleeping rooted babies in the sitting position ONLY to show their swirl rooting.
I hope I didn’t hurt your feelings.
@chatrat thank you!
And @YelenaRey I agree with you! The posing isn’t the best- it was a rush job as both of my kids were home and needing my attention, haha.
As far as the chair itself, I know a lot of newborn pictures are done on smaller furniture and appear precarious, but there is always someone nearby “spotting” (their hands/bodies are often photoshopped out). So while I should have curled her up more, the chair itself is well within the realm of newborn props Lots of cute examples online!
You could also use the rocker/chair similar to this pic where the baby is in a bucket/basket thingy on top of the chair!
Btw, I Love the last pic you took
Ooh, @YelenaRey is that was you meant? The basket on top of the chair? I thought you meant instead of.
That’s cute! The chair is really small (toddler size) and I’m not sure I have a basket or bucket that will fit but I’ll keep an eye out for one at the thrift store
Your photos are amazing. Are you using a “real” camera?
If you are asking about the pic I added in, it’s just a pic I got off Google
I was actually asking @JoyW if she was using a real camera…
Thank you, Pia! Just my iPhone If you zoom in they’re not super clear. I have a digital camera but it’s just so cumbersome…
I have a camera too, but use my iPhone…so easy to upload to FB and forum. Your pictures look great…
It’s the ease of use for me, too. I can instantly edit and upload. Plus, my camera is probably obsolete now anyway…I bought it nearly ten years ago
Thanks for the kind words on the photos!
I’m in the same boat
