Newborn Niece Photoshoot

I had the pleasure of taking a couple photos of my pretty six day old niece. Overall, it was harder than I thought it would be for a couple reasons. 1. I have very little equipment, so trying to take inside photos, with low light, is not easy! 2. Little girl did not like to be unwrapped from her blanket and so she was awake and cranky for a little bit!

Each time I take others' pictures I learn a little more. I also am more driven to make my next shoot even better. I would love to get another lens and external flash before Addison arrives (those have been on my wish list for awhile!) but that's not likely. So I'm determined to push and challenge myself to improve without spending extra money on a hobby...right now.  Anyway, I haven't finished editing even half of them yet but here are a few of my favorites thus far.
