Photo Friday #3

HAPPY FRIDAY everyone!!!  Today is a very exciting day!!  Not only do I get to show you a handful of SUPER cute baby pictures, I am also proud to say every one of these were shot in MANUAL mode!!!  That's right!!  I have taken the leap!!!  Thank you Darcy for getting me there so quickly!!!  This was my first attempt at infant photography and I must say I loved every minute of it!!!

Born 4 months early at 1.7 pounds, Zoe Jasmine Hopkins is now 7 months old and a healthy 12 pounds!!

If mom is helping you hold up the baby....Try to avoid giving her double D's...... 

Get ready time I see you, we are pulling out the tutu's.....


  1. These pics are absolutely gorgeous! I am so impressed you are already in manual!! :) And baby Zoe is an absolute miracle...what a gorgeous baby. Great job!!

  2. You seriously are off to an incredible start. I cant believe it was your first time in manual! Is that your baby? She is beyond gorgeous. OMG How can you not smother her in kisses

  3. Great shots! Her eyes are so beautiful. Your photos are making me want to spring for a different lens - especially with the great blur in the background you are getting, like in the feet shot! I'm just off of manual this week, so I'm right there with you.

  4. She is so sweet! Such beautiful eyes! Nice job!
