3 month baby photos – DIY

I know I told you I was going to post the tutorial for the monogrammed shams today, but I ended up waiting until the last minute and it just didn’t happen.  Tutorials take me a lot of time to put together and I didn’t want to half ass it.  Hopefully, you’ll forgive me!
Instead, you’re getting sweet-as-pie baby pictures I took yesterday.
As with everything lately, time has completely gotten away from me and I realized I never scheduled 3 month photos for Sam.  I know, I know… It’s kinda silly to schedule photos to be done every 3 months, but I did it for Izzy and Mommy Guilt has taken over and I don’t want him to feel like he wasn’t special enough.  I mean come on, the poor guy has worn some of Izzy’s hand-me-down jammies that weren’t exactly gender neutral.
In true Shelley form I figured I would try to DIY it.  And you know what, they actually turned out great!  I’m certainly not calling myself a photographer, and I’m sure a real photographer would find lots of mistakes, but hey I’m pretty thrilled.
Here are my favorites.  Warning: it’s hard for a mom to pick favorites of her baby, so I’m bout ready to hit you with a load of photos. 

Just try and be upset with me now.  I bet you forgot all about those pillows 😉 
If you have any questions, hit me up in the comments.

    Oh my, those eyes! Both of your children have the most beautiful eyes. I would definitely call you a photographer. Can I hire you?

    So precious! I did most of my son's baby photos myself — it was so easy to get good shots when he was little! When they start moving more, notsomuch. 🙂

    I think your pictures are amazing! I want to know what mode your camera was in and how you got those beautful eyes to shine so much! I think you might want to add photog to your resume!

    Oh my gosh, so sweeeeeeeet!!! I suck at photographing people, so I'd be interested to know what modes you used as well.
    He looks like his sister through the nose and eyes. Too stinkin' cute.

    I have a 4 month old who I would love to photograph… any sneak peaks into what your "set" looked like? I love how you have a white background…but not sure how to get that look?

      Thanks Carissa! I use a Canon Rebel EOS with the plain ol lens that comes with it. I'm planning on doing a post for you guys about it. Nothing fancy here!
