Newborns and big sisters
November 16, 2010 § 3 Comments
Today I got a letter in the mail. A real letter, written by hand, in a colored envelope. WOW. I ripped it open, unlike the regular machine printed envelopes I usually get.
It came from a friend with whom I met up with a little while back, before it got cold and rainy. She had just had her second baby girl a few weeks prior to that day. I asked her kindly if I could take some pictures and test some poses with such a new (and flexible) little blessing. The only hitch was that the beautiful baby didn’t want to sleep, which would have made the posing easier. Even though she was wide awake and stretching her arms and legs as far as she could, we caught some precious photos of her and her older sister (who wanted all the attention of course!) .
I had gotten a few props that might just fit a baby in them, like baskets. But you can see in the wrinkles on her forehead, she was not real convinced about it.
Big sister, in a rare moment of stillness.
A short nap in a basket, but not long..
Big sister wanted to help and check out if baby sis might be needing a diaper… ‘Nope, no kaka!’
Catching a beautiful butterfly, while she was playing in her kitchen.
Most of the time, she was awake and stretching her little legs and arms. So no real newborn-folded-poses possible. But that was fine too!
Slowing down time, sweet.
Thank you so much Sonja for letting me spend a few mornings with you and your beautiful girls. Looking forward to seeing them again for the next session!
