Ok, so maybe 6 weeker by now but still squishy and adorable! And in a much better mood! I had wanted some lifestyle/environmental shots and just had to go back for them (parents willing, of course, and they were!)
I wanted some shots of baby E in the nursery and the living room – with the yummy brown fringey throw, the gorgeous trunk they use for a coffee table, some shots of dad with baby and his beloved Taylor guitar (which he plays magnificently, by the way) and the special crocheted blanket by mom’s grandmother…
I did manage to get them all and I’m so excited to share a few!!
We tried to place baby ON the curve of the guitar while daddy played, but alas he was a little too big. And, well, he peed, so we decided it was endangering the guitar to try again! I love how this shot turned out!
And this is the beloved crocheted blanket done by baby E’s late great grandmother. I teared up when I heard the story about this blanket! ‘M’ once had a collection of beloved blankets made by her grandmother. They were destroyed by circumstances beyond her control and she was just devistated. She begged her grandmother to make her just one more so she would have something of hers to cherish forever. One day out of the blue, a package arrives at her work – from her grandmother. It still had her grandmother’s scent on it, which brought back so many wonderful memories. Upon her return home that very day, she found a message on her answering machine that her beloved grandmother has passed away. Yet, she managed to give her granddaughter the one thing she wanted the most – a hand made blanket to cherish forever.
I was so pleased to be able to incorporate this special blanket in this session! This is my favorite image from those series of shots…
Thank you, ‘B’ family, for allowing me to be a part of this special time in your lives! I hope you enjoy your 2nd sneak peek!
