Since you’re amateurs you might want to read articles like this one: http://www.thebusybudgetingmama.com/2012/12/diy-newborn-photo-tips-from-one-amateur.html for tips on doing an at home shoot. I really don’t think it matters that you’re not professionals. Honestly, who can deny cute pictures of a baby? No matter who takes them.

OMG how cute! Sadly I don’t and I’m almost 99% sure if I did try it would look more like a mess of yarn!

Oh how cute is that boy of yours? Just scrumptious! I’d never have thought they were iPhone pictures either. The quality is excellent.

LOL thank you 🙂
Yes, I sent them through a local place to get prints & when I went to pick them up they requested the copyright release from the photographer. I was like “Um… I AM the photographer.” They just looked at me like I was lying. It was very awkward!
