I am not sure if anyone remembers, but a few weeks ago I was desperately searching for a used 25mm 1.4 to use when my daughter was born. Well, I received the lens just about a week before my daughter was born (1July2014)!!
Now I have never done a "photoshoot" or anything like that, but my wife, my mom, and myself decided to make our own "budget" photoshoot with blankets and small props we found laying around the house. I used my EPM2 along with my 25mm 1.4, and OM 50mm 1.8 to do this.
I wanted to share some of these images, and I really am looking for some feedback on some things I can do different, especially so I can use these tips for her 1 month photoshoot!

Please, any feedback would be great as I am still really new to photography!

and thanks for any feedback, pointers, advice, criticism I receive!!

OM 50mm 1.8

Great shots.

I would be tempted to try processing a few of these in black and white.

I liked #4 and #5 the best. I've never done baby photography, aside from candid shots of my own 20+ years ago, so I don't have much critique to offer. Enjoy your daughter... and the camera.

Congratulations! You have succeeded well, if this really is your first photoshoot. No matter what I think some of your shots but the most remarkable achievement you've got is that as a father of four I could refresh my personal memories and 'smell' this little beauty. Got tears in my eyes, and then you know you've touched something. Thanks for sharing your top moments!

Congratulations on your beautiful baby! In addition to the shots other people have mentioned, I like the photos of the baby with the dogs. I'd like to see more with the fluffy dog.

Beautiful shots and beautiful baby! The shot with the dogs is fantastic, but I also love the ones representing La Selección Colombia!
