I don't have the opportunity to do much studio portraiture these days and when I do, it's rare that children have are my subjects. But in December Brian and Katie came to stay at our house for a while and I volunteered to do some family portraits.
This photo isn't at all what we were trying for - Irene is supposed to be looking at the camera and smiling. So much for that! But what I got instead is a "real" photo of a real moment in the lives of Katie and her youngest daughter. And I like it, though you'll have to forgive my bias. :-)
Canon 5DIII 1/125s f/9.5 ISO100 73mm
Here's one taken when Ibby (aka Irene Bernice) was about a week old.
