    My daughter's friend recently had her first baby and I jumped at the chance to shoot her. So when we visited her in the hospital I offered to do some photos and loved getting in some practice of actually shooting someone who didn't object...lol. Isn't she a doll!

    Edited to add...I put up 8 new photos at the end of this thread!

    Very nice work. I like the one (wrong, I like them all) where the babies head in in the hand and resting on the arm. A friend of mine has a very similar black and white of his granddaughter taken with a film snapshot camera. I've always like it.

    Lovely series!! I love that you went black and white with these. You need to do this more often.

    My desire in photography is to capture the essence of life, to make others catch their breath at the purity of the moment captured, I'm still working on that.

    Congrats! Well done.

    I just checked all the exif and all but one of these was shot with the 30mm...I did put on the 17-70 for a bit but wasn't liking the result with that one.
