my attempt at being photographer

After Brooklynn was born, my sister had a newborn photo-shoot scheduled at 1 week. The photographer ended up getting the flu or something and couldn't come. Soo...my mom and I decided to try our take at being the photographer. We had looked around on Pinterest and found some cute pictures we loved of newborns. 
And then we got started...

{just a disclaimer...I took yearbook for 3 years in high school. That's basically the extent of my photographer knowledge. My parents have a really nice Canon camera which makes the pictures better...but ultimately, I do not know what I'm doing! I know that natural light is necessary for good pictures...so that's what we did.}








Some of them turned out really good! If you could have seen the ways I was maneuvering around on the floor and around her to get that "perfect" shot, you would all be laughing at me right now. Not to mention, we had turned the heater way up in the house to make Brooklynn happy. I was a hot mess. Literally.
When Chris and I have gotten our pictures taken, Lauren always makes it look so easy. Yeah, well I learned that some people are cut out for it and some are not! haha

But Brooklynn did have the last word in this photoshoot. We were trying to get a shot similar to this one...

Major fail.
As you can see, she didn't like that. So she pooped. Then she cried. So Nana picked her up to calm her. Then she relieved her FULL bladder all down Nana's shirt, pants, legs.
Yall, I was rolling laughing. We all were. (Except Brooklynn...as you can see!)
I will say baby poop/pee is so much easier to clean up than adult's! (...the nurse in me...)

So overall, we got some really cute pictures out of this session, but I can say I will leave the photography to the professionals! :) Lauren, your job is NOT in jeopardy by me!
