Baby Hutch

From the title, you might think that this post has something to do with a really small open-shelved cabinet on top of some drawers--but you'd be wrong. The hutch I'm talking about is little Mr. Hutcheson, the new baby of our friends Brett and Vikkie. Over the weekend we went to KC to visit our friends and meet Hutch for the first time. He is such a little cutie and I probably could have stayed at their house for hours taking pictures of him if Chad wouldn't have dragged me away. Here are just a couple of the many pictures from our visit!

Isn't he just a doll? My pictures certainly don't do him justice. They make me realize how much I need to take a photography class! I see all of the beautiful pictures on all the photography blogs I follow that are clear and sharp and well-lit and never look like they have the harsh glare of the flash and I'm dying to know how they're always so perfect! Is everyone in the world bouncing a flash except me? Help me, photographer friends!

Okay, enough of my photography obsession--back to the subject at hand: cute baby Hutch!! Hutch was born on February 15, so he was exactly 2 weeks old in these pictures. He was such a good baby while we were there and wasn't fussy at all. I know Vikk and Brett are going to be great parents because they've raised a wonderful little Beagle son already!

Welcome to the world, little Hutch! Congrats, you cute little family!

I prefer to use no flash and use my 50mm lens.

Kim, you're so funny--and you're already picking it up so quickly! I agree with Jen...no flash. Look for some good natural light, like by a window. Bounced flash is better than hard direct flash, however no flash is best of all. Shoot at a wide aperture and high ISO if you need to.
