Eventually, I figured out the plain wall was a better backdrop for the photos, so I moved the carriage closer to the window instead of next to the crib. Lesson learned for next time.
I love the giant bear, he is the perfect accessory to prop up Ashford, and also is very photogenic. I had a great time taking these pics, I used the light from the window and also one of my stand lights to fill in the darkness on the other side. I really wish I'd paid more attention to my shutter speed and aperture to get clearer shots, but I guess I'm lucky I even remembered to take the lens cap off these days. Just kidding, I've lost every lens cap I ever bought for my camera. ha
And that signaled the end of the photo shoot. Hopefully the two month pics turn out even better! I'm not sure if I mentioned it yet, but at his 1 month appointment, he was 8 lbs 15 oz and 21.5 inches long. That is an increase of over 2 pounds and 2 inches since he was born! Baby likes to eat, what can I say.
