Noah's DIY Newborn Photos

 When Tyne was newborn I wasn't much into photography at all and so all of his first photos were snaps taken on my Blackberry which had a terrible quality camera!

Infact I didn't get a decent camera until he was almost a year old, and it makes me quite sad that all photos of him before then are mobile phone ones of varying bad quality.

So when Noah came along, I wanted to try to utilise my DSLR - I'm still very much a novice as I haven't had it for long and haven't taken the time to read through the instruction manual but I wanted to have a go at doing a newborn photoshoot with Noah anyway and I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out so I thought I'd share them!
