I absolutely LOVE the red hair! I have actually never had a birth with a red head baby yet so that was fun 🙂 So glad this little angel decided to come at just the right time!
Meggy – I am wondering if you use a flash when indsie? What if you go somewhere and they do not have enough natural light I recently tried to do a shoot indsie but there was not enough light and I went to use my external flash, however, daddy wouldnt let me, even when baby was asleep. Have you ever had this issue, what lense do you use in order to let in enough light??Thanks, this is a great post!May 8, 2011 8:54 pm
I use my external flash quite a bit. Mostly just to supplement and create dimension. But, this is something I discuss with my clients during the birth consultation. I let them know that I will use it, and if at any time they don’t want it on, I AM capable and able to turn it off, but that it helps to make a better quality picture. I have never yet had anyone that asked me to turn it off. In fact, I have asked many times after the fact if it bothered them, and every single one has told me they didn’t even notice. They are so into what they are doing, it’s never an issue. Of course I’m bouncing it off walls or ceiling, so it’s not hitting them directly. But yes, having an external flash as one of your tools to assist in making the perfect image for birth is a must in my book.
