Valentina Glidden: baby bath

Valentina Glidden sent us this oh so pretty light filled session of a new family giving their new baby a bath. What a fantastic idea for a newborn photography session! It’s great to include something the family regularly does as part of the shoot, to really capture their time at the moment. The baby baths in the sink don’t last forever, although I’ve been known to stick my 6 year old in my big farm sink in the kitchen once in a while. My husband calls me lazy but I prefer to think of it as efficient.

Cindy Lee: field of dreams

I love the colors of this family session sent in by Cindy Lee Photography. Color is key for me. It really draws me in and makes me happy. I am super sensitive to color and it really affects me. That may be why I love film and how the color comes back from the lab just as I saw it.

That said I will admit, I saw The Dress as white and gold (so my color is very subjective).
