Really exciting times at the moment, my son was born last week. After going to the photrographer today to find out prices I thought I would have a crack myself (about $190AU for 2 8x12 prints and 3 6x4 prints, original files cost $40 per photo).

Please let me know honest opinions, as everyone knows newborn shots have a short window to be done. I will be taking some more later on in the week and looking for ideas. I will be a bit more prepared next time. I will also have a go with my 50mm 1.8 lens.

I have made a couple notes of what I have observed and how I think I can better the shots already. Cut and clean finger nails, don't squash the poor guys ear and wrinkle his forehead. Look where his hands are and face expressions. Be patient. All images have been slightly cropped.

Hi Watty, Firstly, congratulations on the birth of your baby son. I love the first picture the best with the black background, hes a little cutie. I know it can be very hard trying to get shots of little babies (my new grandson is 6 weeks old and i have yet to get a photo i am pleased with). Its funny too that sometimes we are so busy setting the camera to get the shot that little things like crushed ears etc get overlooked.
I have been trying to get a picture of his small fist but have yet to get a shot. Lighting not right, background wrong,and just when you think you have it they constantly wave there little arms around and fidget its because they want feeding again its can be extremely hard.
:roll: I wish you luck and hope to see some more shots of your baby son.
Sue

Congratulations Watty, that phototog sounds like Ned Kelly, price at office works for the same prints is less than $10. I would suggest taking 100's of shots in Raw + Jpeg and process the ones you like. At a later date you can review and edit the rest but you will have captured the memories.

Cheers
