I offered to photograph a friend's grandchild this past weekend... Bailey is just under 4 weeks old. We mostly shot in a smallish fairly cluttered sun room using blankets as backdrops, so I framed/cropped fairly tight. It was a fairly dark cloudy day, ambient light was pretty low, so I did bounce a speedlite.

Would appreciate honest & useful feedback... TYVM!

#1, #2 -- I'd like to see a different crop. She feels a bit close to the bottom of the frames.
#5 -- I'd like to see brightening of the shadows, bit dark under mom's chin.
Great series, Rob. Next time I can't sleep, I'm finding a helmet.

Hi,
Quick Comments:

I think you did a good job, especially given it is your first time with an infant.

Some of the photos show a good connection.

Some are or more appealing to me
than many photos I see posted of infants.
