Once in awhile, grown-up’s need a good play-date. The best kind of play date (for me) involves a couple of cameras as well. Terra Herring, of Terra Herring Photography graciously offered to take some newborn photos for me. Having had two c-sections herself she knows what it is like and photographing a brand new baby is a bit challenging after you have had surgery. I was so relieved that I would have a friend to take photos with, and that she would do a lot of the work. I was able to take my camera as well and we had a blast in her natural light studio located in her home. I took a lot of pull backs of her working, just for fun.
Terra and I have similar clients, (lots of babies and kids) and slightly different styles. I love her “look” and I had fun working with her, and seeing how she works. She has a really neat natural light studio, I use indoor studio lighting (when shooting indoors), we both shoot pretty open (wide apertures), and she really has her baby posing perfected where I am a little more loose. I know we respect each other and our differences a lot, and I loved having August photographed by her.
I have been trying to do this blog post for awhile… August was just 10 days old here, and he is a month now. I can’t wait to see all the images Terra captured as well. Thanks Terra, I hope I can return the favor soon (not saying you are having a baby… just that I can help you out sometime)!
Below are the photos I took of August and Terra working. I can’t wait to see what Terra got!
