Baby Hunter Helps Me Again

A while back I did a practice photo session with my great friend Brandy's son Hunter.  I was beyond tired when I did the session, which in turn made me forget to check my settings.  I left my ISO at 800 the ENTIRE time.  Every cute shot had a ton of noise leaving all of the photos unusable for my portfolio.

Two weeks ago I was able to schedule some time with little Hunter again, this time I remembered to check the ISO and all the settings.  Except this time I forgot to check the lines of the shot, and the background distractions.

Here we have a wonderful shot of Hunter.. I love the clarity, the connection he has with the camera, the composition.. I truly love it all.. EXCEPT the baseboard running through the shot.  Not a deal breaker in my eyes, but it will never be able to go on a Canvas print. **edited to say I am the WORST at the clone tool.. so I don't clone, but if anyone has a great tutorial, please share!!  :)

I love the fuzziness of the background.. also known as Bokeh..

And then there is my love of the piggy pops of babies.. and Hunter has some awesome piggy pops..

Hunter looks just like Daddy in this shot..

I love the love in his face playing with Mommy.

And then there is the best outtake picture .. it is super cute and the look on his face is priceless.. "Lady, are you crazy taking MORE pictures of me". 

Lastly is a picture that I just thought was sweet..

Overall it was a wonderful practice session.  Hunter was GREAT and it is always nice to practice, practice, practice.  The more I practice, the better I am for my real photo sessions.  So thank you Brandy and Hunter for being awesome!! I cannot wait to photograph you again Baby Hunter!!

I agree... practice helps. I love that first picture. Isn't there something you can do to crop that out. It would for sure be a canvas print. The composition is perfect and his connection is awesome with the camera. I also love the toes shot. I am a sucker for baby feet.

Great job Kim!

The ISO is something I always forget about too! Drives me mad!!
As for the line... try cloning it out in PS.

Great shots. I so wish I'd had a digital camera when my kids were babies. I would have so many pictures, walls and walls of them.

I like the mom and baby is my favorite..........................:)
