This little girl has only seen me with a big black box in front of my face. I'm either doing serious damage here and we're going to end up with a camera-phobic child, or she's going to be one very comfortable child model!
Anyway - here's her THIRD set of photos (she turned 5 weeks old today).
Again, the photos have a grey tint to them (courtesy of weebly), but check them out on my face book page if you'd like: http://www.facebook.com/DerrynSemplePhotography.
First resolution for 2012 - get a proper website/blog.
Nicola and Simon are both from New Zealand and have just had their first little boy in Singapore.
Nicola told me before hand that Simon was not to hot on having his photo shot. He is after all a typical big 'rugby thug' - but I must say that he held that boy in his arms with as much ease as I can imagine him holding a rugby ball before a pass. (OOOH, I just had a photo shoot idea!!)
Simon - I kinda lied when I said I'd just do one or two with you, sorry! ;) But I think they look great, and I hope that in years to come you both treasure these photos and remember this special time with your little boy.
Someone asked me the other day how important Photoshop is to me and how often I use it. Here is a perfect example of how Photoshop helped me in this shot. Had I used a flash or a reflector, I might not have needed to do this post editing, but this was taken 3 years ago (or there abouts) and I wasn't as prepared as I should have been.
As you can see below, the photo at the top is WAAAAYYYYYY better than the original. I use either Lightroom or Photoshop on most photos - most often just for small tweaking - but in some cases like the one below, it can play a very big role in taking a photo from average to great.
After I am happy with my image - I give it a border and my signature logo, I resize it for screen viewing and -BOOM - hit the upload button!
You might remember the cute maternity shoot that I did with Helen and Jason last month...well - it was a GIRL and she is beautiful!!
Little Cameron was born with a full head of healthy dark hair and the most active little arms I've seen. I'm sure she is going to be a salsa dancer when she grows up.
The first few photos were taken at hospital when she was not even a day old, and the rest were taken when she was almost 2 weeks old.
Too adorable for words.
