Little Caterpillar

I'm on a roll with kids lately, which is awesome! Soon I should have enough photos to launch my photography portfolio website, which is a goal I've been working towards for a while now.

This little girl (who's parents call her their little caterpillar) is the youngest in my portfolio so far, so the session was full of new challenges and things to think about. It's amazing how different it is photographing infants outside the familiar studio environment. But I'm learning to use the new surroundings to my advantage. For example, this apartment had these amazing corner windows, so I decided to try a little back lighting. I think it worked well!

50 mm

I got myself a new lens recently, and went over to try it out on my friend's little girl. It has no zoom which I'm not at all used to so it was interesting to get used to moving myself around so much but it's totally worth it for the 1.8 F-stop! Check out that depth of field! What fun! I love it!

As usual, more from this session can be found on my Flickr
