Recently a friend took a "behind the scenes" shot while I was doing a newborn shoot for her best friend. I love when clients and friends take pictures of me taking pictures. It's really cool to see myself in action doing something I love to do. It also gives my clients and clients-to-be a peak into what exactly it is I do. Pictures takes a lot of work. It's not just a simple snap of the camera. It's idea transformed into a picture and edited to perfection. Photographers typically go into a photo shoot with an idea of what they'll do. I know for this shoot, I wanted to do a shot in this cute yellow basket. Backstory: the yellow basket is actually my son's Easter basket. My youngest daughter tore the basket liner out along with the 27 plastic eggs and voila I saw my prop for that night's shoot. This pretty yellow basket that was fit for a prince.... or a newborn squishy baby.
