Leave it to the professionals

We've been talking about getting newborn photos taken of our little trio since before they were born and researched a bunch of local photographers online a while ago.   We really like a lot of the newborn photos we've seen online and since these will be our only kiddos we thought "why not?"  But, it is a little pricey so we considered a couple of alternatives first.  We thought about trying a department store photo studio first and if they didn't turn out the way we wanted, then we could always go with the pros. We got some coupons for cheap sessions at JCPenney and Sears from the hospital, but our local JCPenney doesn't have a portrait studio and ALL Sears portrait studios have been closed nationwide, so that option was out.

I'm no photographer, but I do like to play around with the camera sometimes so I thought maybe I'd try a mini photo shoot at home this past weekend while Auntie Jess was visiting. I had a good time, but let's just say, some things are better left to the professionals!  We did get some good laughs out of it and a couple of decent shots, but knew it was time to schedule the "real" photo shoot...

Here are a few shots from our photo shoot at home :)  Next post will be all about the actual photo shoot today!

 I'm kind of obsessed with babies in baskets =)

And he really wanted a "brother picture"

 Yeah...definitely should leave these baby stacking photos to the professionals!!!  Ellie may, or may not, have rolled off of Isaiah at one point! ;)

  1. The ones with Humphrey make me so happy. And I love that you tried to stack your children. The photos look great!
