This is why we didn’t want a Christmas baby–money, money, money, money. Ha. So, I decided to stretch my photography skills a bit and DIY Evelyn’s newborn photos.
When Rhys was born, we had a unique opportunity to work with a local photographer who was just beginning her business. So, we got 10 photos for free in exchange for a review and social media shoutouts. I was so grateful, since I didn’t have a DSLR nor photography skills. However, looking back, I’m not the happiest with the quality nor style of the pictures. Since then, I’ve gotten a DSLR and grained some skill. So, I decided to scour Pinterest for advice and tips and attempt them myself.
They aren’t perfect, and Evelyn wasn’t very cooperative–she didn’t sleep very soundly nor stayed in the positions I arranged her in. But, I’m proud of myself and my efforts. I did them on my bed, next to our large open window, with a white bed sheet and pillows in the back to hold the sheet up.
