Thank you so much for the gesture, @camera_mama / @merrakaiphotography! For this shot I would say light is key. Posing wasn’t that important, it’s pretty relaxed. The light is in the upper right corner, pointing towards the baby. You can achieve this look with a window as well, no need to have fancy studio equipment. Position the baby so the light is coming down baby‘s face and not shining up the nose if that makes sense. For newborn photos I find good light is the most important feature to make or break a picture.

I took this with my Sigma 35mm art lens! It was a little tricky to get them lined up, Lebron is part Clydesdale so he’s huge!! But I got my niece to get as close as she could on her tippy toes, he loves her so much he cuddled right into her. In editing I cropped it closer. In the original you can see more of both of their faces but I wanted it to be just their eyes.

For black and white conversions, you want to make sure you have a photo that is good to convert in the first place. I knew the water would look pretty in bw, and that there was enough contrast and shadow here to make it pop. Depending on the light, I often decrease highlights and increase contrast. Playing with the color sliders is key in bw conversions! Don’t forget that bw photos contain color! The grass is made darker by playing with the yellow and green sliders! I encourage trying to convert well lit photos often to nail down your style!
