Each time I photograph a newborn I get excited because I just can’t wait to see his/her fresh little face. Getting to meet 9 day old Benjamin was great and I think he was very interested in his new surroundings, the lights and the new woman with the camera- me! Once he got settled it was time for a little siesta and then my camera went snapping. Love his little mop of hair too…enjoy!
As promised, here’s the full collection of my hot air balloon photos, in order of how this little adventure unfolded. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them. One of the great things about taking photographs in a hot air balloon is that you can take quite a few photos and still have time to enjoy the ride. You’re not traveling at 500 miles per hour, but instead at around 7 miles per hour.
The morning was a little foggy, but our pilot seemed confident after letting off a couple of test balloons.
Fans initially filled the balloon up.
Then, they turn on the propane burners, which ultimately make the balloon start to rise up.
This turns the basket over, and then it’s time to jump in!
