This little guy is precious! He belongs to some very dear friends of ours.

Photographing him was a sweet moment for me because the first 'real' photo session that I did as a professional was Carter's brother and sister. They have since added to their family and allowed me to capture their newest addition.

I had the blessing of photographing him on Sunday along with another sweet family that we are friends with (stay tuned for that one also).

Babies are always extremely interesting to photograph because you don't quite know what to expect. You just have to be prepared for anything and willing to hang out and wait for the right moment.

We used tons of great window light. This is always best in order to capture a more natural look. If I can avoid using my flash, I will at all cost. All that you need is a really great lens and lots of good light and you are good to go. Remember: a camera is only as good as the lens that is on it!

He was a great little model. We managed to get some really great shots of him. His mommy and I were both sweating by the end of the session.

Check out Carter!

I LOVE this chunky baby boy! I love that his Mama let me hold him. I love his full head of hair! I love his cheeks. He's so stinkin' cute. Hope I see him again sometime.
