Portrait Photographer on the side?

As some of you may know (or can judge from the massive amounts of pics on this blog...) I love taking pictures. I would love to learn more about photography and perhaps start a productive side hobby doing portrait photography. Sooo... if you remember from a few posts back, there was a baby shower for a friend at work who had her baby girl. I asked if I could come take pics and went over this past weekend. It was actually much harder than I was prepared for, but I hope I got some good ones. The worst thing was putting my skills out there and not being able to deliver... Please keep in mind that none of these pics are touched up or edited. I would love to get photoshop, but that will have to wait. Maybe Christmas?
Here is Aftynne with baby Mackenzy. She is such a sweet baby, and Aftynne and Ray and great parents. It was so sweet to see them interact with her!
You can't see in this pic, but Ray is HUGE! I loved watching him with his little girl!
The family portrait...
I love how Aftynne is looking at Ray here, with Mackenzy making her feelings known. I think this was the only time she cried the entire time I was there.
Look at the difference in their head sizes!
The feet shot. It took forever to get a shot of her feet actually in focus- she was a wiggly thing!
And, a bit softer light up in her bedroom.

I love how happy she looks here laying on her mom's chest!
And for some reason, this might be my favorite shot.

WOW! She is a gorgeous baby with such cute parents! And you got some AMAZING shots...especially considering they are unedited! I would say it was a definite success!! And I have several mommy friends who have been able to quit their jobs to become full time photographers. You never know! =)
