I thought it would be fun to show you a glimpse into what was then just a hobby. This is my third baby Kate. We were students and had just gotten our very first digital camera. It was a Sony cybershot. I still have a soft spot in my heart for that camera. It is still in my closet even though we haven’t used it in over 6 years. I was playing at home one afternoon trying my hand at newborn photography. This was before Mothers even had an option to have newborn portraits unless we were willing to settle for shots at Sears or Portrait People where poor little babies always looked flat and uncomfortable. But I had to have an image for announcements so we played around. At the time I didn’t even have editing software! So these images are straight out of my camera.
I think I have come a long way with some really great training and excellent equipment. But it sure is fun to look down memory lane and see my humble beginnings. It would be 5 years before I decided to try my hand at newborn photography.
