My little nephew Drey

My old camera wasn't working too well so Micah surprised me and got me an amazing new one for Christmas. I am still trying to figure it out, It is awesome! (If anyone has the Canon Rebel xsi let me know so I can take some lessons) Today we took pictures of Micah's little sister Dani's baby Drey. Dani was a trooper during her pregnancy! Little Drey did not want to come out of his mommy's belly. She was over her due date when she delivered him at a healthy 9 lb 9 oz. He was a sweetheart during his little photo shoot today. We felt pretty bad making him "pose" for us so we could get a good shot. Poor little guy was exhausted after we were done with him.
I think this one is sweet of him laying on his Dani's wedding dress but Micah doesn't agree. He doesn't think a boy should be laying on lace.

Nice job sis! What did you use for the black backdrop? (probably a black backdrop huh.) keep up the good work.. The next thing I would get for your camera is a good flash. Then you could do indoor events and stuff and from the looks of things you could set yourself up a little studio and make a little money while you're at it! See you in a few weeks when your little girl comes out!

hey! nice job with those pics! my sis in law has your same camera, and mine is a canon so they are mostly pretty similar. it is pretty easy to google any questions you have about the camera or also about any photoshop q's. i've done it a few times. The flash is a good suggestion too, i am working on saving up for one, its my next purchase. i was wondering if you got a new camera when i saw your pics on your side bar. they look really good! its so fun having a nice camera and taking pics.

Love the pictures! Also HATE the picture of you pregnant! You are still a hottie!!!! Sure wish I could say the same about myself!! I guess you saw that we are thinking of Carter as well but Dustin doesn't know if Kash and Carter would be good together because June Carter married Jonny Cash but I don't think anybody would even know that. We actually agreed on girl names so that is why we are having a boy! We liked Whitlee (like at Bowery remeber, Keslee,& Payslee. But 3 letters would be cute since your others are. There is the cutest little Ava in our ward. Good luck!

What a darling baby! Tell them congrats for us. By the way, your photography skills are great! They totally look professional.
By the way - I hate your pregnancy picture too. It is not fair to look that good pregnant, especially on your 3rd one! You make the rest of us look so bad!
