Best Picture Ever

  • Posted on September 23, 2007 at 9:57 pm

I had an opportunity to photograph a newborn baby a week ago. It was definitely a learning experience, and I realized that I need better lighting solutions when I take portraits. (I’m buying a flash and diffuser very soon!) It was also very exciting to be around such a little baby! She was so cute, really. I couldn’t have asked for a better model.

I posted a few pictures from the photo shoot to Flickr, and in less than 24 hours, one of the pictures has sky-rocketed in popularity! To date, 30 people have called it a “favorite”, and it is in the 14th slot on Flickr Explore for Saturday (it ranks the 500 most interesting pictures of the day.) This makes it by far my most popular picture ever.

So if anyone wants me to take pictures of their baby (ahem, ahem, you all know who you are, soon to be parents), just let me know! I’d love more practice. And it seems that the people using Flickr just love baby pictures.

Thanks to the lucky mom and dad for this opportunity!

Grrrrr. I just wrote a nice little review of my trip to Farrah Olivia, and I somehow lost the entire post. I really don’t feel like writing it again.

To sum it up: Farrah Olivia is awesome. Delicious. Try the five course dinner. Totally worth it. Get the lemon cheesecake for dessert. SO GOOD.
