Tell Me What You Think

In yesterday's post, I had a picture of Baby Trevor on the end of the bed with his mom and dad in the background. Going through the shots some more today, I came across this one and think I like it better. Mom looks happier, but their heads are cut off a little bit.

What do you think? And what do you think of the pose in general? Just so you know, Mom and Dad weren't planning to be in the pictures. The patterns on their clothes are a little bit busy, but I still like the idea of this shot. How about you? I think if I were to do it over, I may have placed the baby on his side instead of the way he is.

Please give me CC. I can take it!

Now that I go back and look at it, I think the mom looks really tired in yesterday's shot. But then again, that's a good indication of how a mom of a one-week old feels, isn't it? :-D

I actually really like the one from yesterday better...maybe it's just the perspective, baby seems to stand out a bit more.

I like today's shot, even with the head cropping. She looked so tired in yesterday's; today she looks much happier.

I think I like yesterdays better. I like the baby standing out more.

I like them both but for different reasons. they each convey something different.

I think this one looks good but I happened to like the other one too!

I like this as a pose.
I think it might be interesting to be even higher, or lower. I think it might add to the dynamic of the pose. But I'm just saying... cause I'm no pro or anything.
It might be interesting to crop so that the bottome of the frame is filled with baby- and then whatever of mom and dad comes into focus, does- you will probably have faces, not whole heads- it might work.
It popped into my thoughs. Please don't think I'm saying I don't like it, because I do.

I prefer today's photo over the one yesterday...but I don't love it either. I love the idea of this pose, but honestly, the baby is in an weird position and there are a lot of patterns still in the background. I know you can't go back and re-do it or anything, and it's fine...but perhaps next time, you'll try it a little differently.

I love it...but I'm biased...there's nothing I like better than a happy smile on a new adoptive parent! Gives me chills!

I like the pose and the clothing does not bother me-especailly when in BnW. I think what could improve it is to have a bit shallower DOF next time so there is more distinction between the baby and mom/dad. Getting down a little more will help too, just a slightly lower angle. But I do like the shot and think they will too. What a darling little bundle.

I do like this one better too!

that's cute..i like that she's smiling in this one. those pictures are gorgeous by the way. i love every single one of them.

I really like this one. The both just look so happy and the head cropping doesn't bother me at all.

The head cropping doesn't bother me, but I would crop a little off of the bottom (this looks like a 4x6 crop so the 5x7 would do that anyway). That way the picture is going off the page all the way around (kwim?). Just personal preference!! Sweet shot!
