sweet little Stephen

Yesterday I went over to my sister in law's house and took some pictures of my sweet new little nephew Stephen. I am not pretending to be a professional photographer in any way shape or form, I just did this for fun :) I figure it gives me some good practice before our new little arrival.

It was definitely a challenge taking pictures while having Ethan try to crawl all over me, but somehow we managed :) Newborn babies are just so stinkin' precious. I had fun taking the pictures :)

Stephen was very awake for the first while, probably because I made Heather strip him down to his diaper and so he was a bit chilly. After eating and warming up he finally went to sleep and we got some cute sleepy pictures as well.

I love his little wrinkled up forehead here :)

Ahhhh, nothing like a sweet sleeping baby
Stephen's brother and sister love him a lot and were very excited to get in on a picture

Wow Jess! Those pictures are beautiful. I really like the second one with his hand up by is face. But then after I scrolled down I liked the next one better :) Great job! What a wonderful memory for Heather to have.

I agree with the consensus. Those pictures are really nice. I especially love the 6th one down (right after the one with siblings kissing him.) The light in that one is sooo nice.
There are a couple of videos that I just got that I think you will love. They are called, "Refuse To Say Cheese" and "Beyond The Green Box" and you can get them here: http://www.refusetosaycheese.com/home.php. You will probably appreciate Me Ra's blog too. I just love reading it and learning.

Those are beautiful! You did such a great job!!! Did you use your 50mm? When I come over this week (that is what I am hoping for if you're feeling up to it) I am going to pick your brain...I can't wait to have Travis here to start taking pics like that of him!
