This shoot was planned in advance, so I came prepared. I had read several baby photo guides before we left, and I had packed two lenses, a Lightscoop, several filters, a reflector, and a gorillapod. I only needed one lens and the Lightscoop, and I’m sure my back would’ve preferred I had only carried the bare minimum.
I took tons of photos, but since a two week old baby pretty much only sleeps, cries, and gives you funny looks with not-quite-focused eyes, there was plenty to weed out. For a first try at baby photos, I’m pretty happy with the final selection.
