My first photoshoot with Mason!

I have my very own newborn baby to hold, snuggle, love, and to practice my photography skills on!

I had to take advantage of all his newborn baby cuteness. I set up a mini photo studio in my bedroom and snapped some shots of my sweet little guy.
After taking these shots I have a whole new respect for newborn photographers! It takes time and tons of patience.
After taking these shots I got a crash course in Photoshop. I called up Melesa and got some advice from her on how to use the program as well as some tips for editing newborn pics. I'm really happy with how they turned out for my very first newborn shoot. Now I am hoping I'll be able to snap some photos of Heidi's new baby when she is born in August.

Today my friend Erica came by to take some pictures of Mason. She is a very talented photographer (way better than me)! Mason slept "like a baby" during the entire shoot. Now I am anxiously waiting to see how cute they turned out. I just can't get enough of my little boy, the more pictures the better!

Here are my favorite shots I took of my sweet little Mason:

BTW, The cute little Teddy Bear Hat was made by Melesa. (It's so cute I can hardly stand it! Thanks Melesa!)

6 Days Old

These are great! You did a really good job! You didn't even need me...but I appreciate you giving me the chance to practice on your sweet little boy. I will be sharing the results soon--probably tomorrow. Good job!

Sorry I'm so slow! Yesterday was a bit crazy and I didn't end up getting online. Brett actually got to see you pictures before I did. Anyway, they look great! You are good at everything you do Jeni :) Are you having so much fun with elements?! I'm glad I have someone I can discuss elements topics with now!
