I have been waiting to get my hands on a baby to photograph and my sweet cousin let me play with her precious little girl for hours last week! I was making the drive toward the Bay Area and the skies got gloomier the further I drove – what would we do without light?? I used my new, handy 50mm 1.8 lens for all of the pictures. That, and the dining room table pushed up to a nice, little window provided enough natural light for some gorgeous shots.
We had a chance to put this cutie in the tiny newborn ruffle jumper that I made her as part of her baby shower layette. So cute!!
These parents were nice enough to oblige when I tried to recreate another photo I had seen. I like how this picture makes me feel like I’m peeking in on their newborn bliss!
If you follow me on instagram (girlinspired1), you know that I decided to take up knitting. Knit or Crochet have been on my “try that someday” list for a long time – so far I’ve knitted a couple straight stitch scarves and this baby pod. At 7 pm, the night before this photo shoot, I decided that we needed a pod – you know me, when I get an idea in my head….
The sweetest family picture ever. The sweetest family, too.
Mel asked me to bring the lace crowns. Why, of course!
Awwwww, cute squishy happy baby. i love her.
