I had the honor to do a combined family and new born photoshoot for a lovely family recently. We were able to play around with the lighting and sets to get such a vast array of shots. For this shoot I was able to apply a matte finish for a lovely touch to the photos. Matting can be tricky, it doesn't lend to just any shot - but for these it worked perfectly! Such a hard task to edit down! So enjoy an even longer than usual photoblog!
