Adventures In Photography

Ugh. Poor Maisie, with no good baby pictures. I should have changed my white balance setting before I handed the camera to Tim this evening, but...sigh. Maybe tomorrow. I've "fixed" these as much as I know how.


She's getting better at napping.  I think it's so important for lambs to take really good naps, especially lambs that are stressed by not feeling good or missing their mommas...  She slept for a few minutes and then started back with the dosing, look up, dosing, look around, head flop down, back up...


Sometimes you can rub her head and ears and help her go back to sleep, but tonight it wasn't working.


I tried and tried and then thought, hmmm, I'm kinda chilly.  I wonder if she is too and flipped the end of her fleece blankie across her back and bingo, sound asleep.

She's ready for her next baba and I'm ready for bed.  For a few hours ;-).

Sweet pictures, camera settings are ok. Let's see, no sweater, no jammies, she might be chilly, may need to knit some wooly jammies for her.

I really like the creamy photo colors. Maisie doesnt look to be in distress in her dozing, maybe just not as deep a sleep. Hard to imagine just how small she is relative to your arm. Does she sleep in your bedroom, or can you hear her cry from the kitchen? Try to do more than doze yourself ;-)

I like the color. She doesn't look distressed. You could knit her jammies with a hood! Oh, wait. That takes two hands. You hold the baby. Ask 20 to do the knitting!

We are all in agreement...nice work Tim. Maisie looks content.

Love this oh so tiny creature. Our pup was so skinny that I had to cover her with a blankie too last year. She finally put on enough weight to keep herself warm, but sometimes now, even at over a year old, she likes a blankie on her. Baby animals are simply sooo sweet.

Love the monochromaticity of the important parts of that first shot. The creamy non-whiteness just emphasizes the warm emotions the scene engenders.

In my humble. :-)

Love that she's smiling now. She looks like she feels so much better/safer/more-comfortable....

Do you have any idea what breed or mix she is? No matter what, she is precious!!! Let us know when she is allowed visitors. :-)

I like the warm cream coloring of these photos. A happy accident. Good job, Tim. She looks very comfy napping. I'm with Maisie on wanting a blanket. Even when you're technically warm enough, having the weight of a blanket over you makes the warmth even better and more relaxing.

Yes indeed, a happy accident. We love the warm, almost sepia tones. By the way, there is no such thing as a "bad" baby picture. ^^

Mary said...

She's so wonderful and sweet. I'd love to be able to stroke those little ears, and i'd probably sing her a lullaby. I love the white setting in the photos. It's lovely!

Good job, momma.
