Baby Mendel

Baby Mendel was born 15 days ago, his mom asked me to come take some photos of him before he gets too old and moves too much. 
This was my first try at taking photos of babies, and it was pretty fun and I would have to say thanks to Esti, I would not have been able to do this without his mom and all the props and ideas she came up with from looking at other photographers work online and then showing me what she wanted. 

Once the baby is quiet and comfortable you can really just shoot anywhere in the house. Its a good idea to turn up the heat in the house, so the baby keeps warm. 

The first image was taken in the bathroom, I did flash it with my remote flash from inside the room towards the ceiling which gave me more light to work with and keep the tones and colors as they are real.

This was a success at my first try for baby photography
