Portraits by Jenn: Maternity, Newborn, Children, Family and High School Seniors: NEWBORN BOY: BABY G: Camp Verde, TX

 Introducing Baby G!
Sweet little nugget came to me the day after he went home from the hospital.
They met me out at Camp Verde and the temperature was H-O-T!!
His Mommy and Daddy brought most of their own props and I love it when they do this. 
It makes their portraits more unique. 
 He was NOT happy about being put in this bucket, so I got what I could before he started crying. 
Poor little man. 
I think it's cute though...he's got a little smirk on his face!!

Portraits by Jenn: Colorado Springs, CO children's lifestyle photographer

Libby and I visited my Best Friend Lauren last week in Colorado. It was so fun! FINALLY got to meet Jax for the first time. He's so precious. What a little miracle. Thanks again for all of you who prayed for him when he was born NINE months ago! WOW....time flies. He's on his way to walking already. I give him a couple more weeks maybe and he will be CRUISING!

I shot a few pics in her living room while the kids were playing. These are my favorite kind of pics. 
I wish I had this much light coming in to my living room. 
I sent her a few images last night and she said (and I quote)

"My camera does not take these kinds of pictures.


She has the Canon Rebel (i'm not sure which one, I will ask and the 50 mm lens)

Here is my shot SOOC (straight out of the camera)
I shoot with the Canon 5d Mark II
This was my Canon Zoom Lens EF  24-70  (2.8)
F-STOP: 2.8
ISO 1600

Obviously this is after PS.
I used my curves layers to brighten it a bit and then added the 
PUNCH OUT action from Totally Rad Actions. 
This is pretty much what I do to all of my images. 
If it is not a baby I will soften the skin a bit and sometimes lighten the eyes, but I did not do this with Jax. 
I am terrible about checking the white balance and skin tones (please don't judge!) :) 
I would love to figure this out more, maybe someday when I'm all alone with nothing else to do!

Here is my Libby with Jax!
