One Week Old | Alpharetta GA Newborn Photographer and Photography Teacher

I love teaching photography, especially when my mentee has a brand-new baby to model for us. Look at this sweetheart! Monique wanted to practice her in-camera shooting techniques while posing her girls and the baby. We set up a simple "studio" at her home using a bed, this cool stretchy blanket from Ikea, window light, and an external flash.

The baby remained quite content in the non-air-conditioned room while we sweated and worked. (Babies don't like it cold!) She was pretty cooperative and though we had relatively short amount of time, we got some great shots.We lucked out with the white blanket too! Baby stayed dry and unsoiled until the minute mom put a diaper on her. Talk about great timing!

Here are some of Monique's shots, absolutely gorgeous! Head on over to Monique's Day in the Life blog for more about her family and photography.

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there! Here's my little man with his daddy, sporting some homemade mustaches I created this morning! (It was inspired by these mustaches on Etsy and these photos by my cousin, also a photographer. I made mine with a mustache stickers from Target, some popsicle sticks, and cardboard. The background? A bit of material I taped to the wall. Ta da! Instant photo booth.)
