Mother’s Day and Baby Photos

Mother’s Day and Baby Photos

This morning my friend Jean kindly helped look after my kids and I was able to pop out and see one of my bffs Carol and her baby-almost-toddler Livvie. It’s so nice to get out and have a bit of time to do photography when the summer holidays have been so full on! I’ve missed it a lot! I wanted to capture some lovely shots of mum and baby together for a Mother’s Day concept that I had in mind. I did bring a tray of breakfast as a Mother’s Day prop for Carol, but Livvie had other ideas and the coffee nearly went flying, haha. However I was really pleased with these cute photos of the two of them.

Carol has a beautiful bright bedroom so I was able to use a nice low ISO of 125/s to give me plenty of sharpness and I also got a new lens recently – the Canon 50mm 1.2 which is so beautiful and lets in loads of light with gorgeous blurry backgrounds. For most of these shots I used the lens wide open (at f1.2) to throw the backgrounds out of focus. My shutter speed stayed around the 320/s mark.

If you’re interested in how to get the right camera settings but all those numbers feel a bit like gobbledegook to you right now, then do join me on my DSLR photography camera settings course! You can find out more about it over on Udemy. 🙂
