One Week Old

Meet my newest neighbor, David. Born just one week ago, he was so excited to come over to my house today and let me take his picture! His mom was very cooperative, too, and looks beautiful, if you ask me. David is this family's first boy. He joins four big sisters at home.

I'm loving my new muslin backdrop, by the way. I know a lot of photographers love seamless paper, but to me, that stuff is the worst! So crinkly and heavy and difficult to work with. I'll take a muslin backdrop any day. Costs more, but it's definitely worth it.

So, any of you out there needing a baby fix today....here you go!

I just had to get a shot of David with the newest addition to my ugly chair family. An ugly chair suddenly becomes beautiful when you put a cute little baby in it.


Always love those little piggy shots!


Isn't that the sweetest little face?

There's a funny story behind my acquiring this chair...I'll have to share that sometime.

I think he looks like he's smiling in this one! :)

Mom and son interaction.

One of the first shots I took today...and one of my favorites.

Awe, 1 week old...they are so tiny. I'm partial to the mom/son shots myself.

That's a great chair, I do want to hear the story.

Nice, Margaret! Love that second to last shot. He is such a cutie... With 4 big sisters, he is going to be the Crown Prince!

Becky said...

I like the way you posed him in the first one, and the background looks great. I also love the ones with his mom.

Janae said...

Yes do share the story because that story is to die for. I like your green chair too, but I wonder if you could get it a brighter bolder green?

And that last shot is probably my favorite too.

You are going to have to tell your chair story. I think you've got the twin to my orange chair...it looks exactly the same! Great shots or a darling baby and mom!

Tracy said...

Ooops....that should say of not or!

Jen said...

Love them! And I love the 'ugly chair' looks so much like mine! Perhaps they belonged in the same family!

Bobbi said...

He is such a doll, I love the mom/dad shots and he does look like a smiler!

WOW :) I like muslin too! But I am a paper freak (I don't personally own any, but have a nice wish list) :) That mom is stunningly beautiful, you did a great job photographing the baby! Great work Margaret!

Cheers,
