Seriously Stella

I borrowed my neighbors baby girl the other day because I bought a tutu and I needed someone to wear it! That’s right. I bought a tutu. I was perusing the Etsy website and came across the cutest tutu that I’ve ever seen. I bought the 18 month size immediately with no regard to the fact that I not only don’t have an 18 month old daughter but I have no daughter at all. And all my nieces are too old or live too far away. And besides, I don’t want to give it to anyone else. I want to keep it. I’m stingy that way. So that’s what I did. I kept it. For months and months until my neighbors’ daughter was old/big enough to wear it. Then I borrowed her so I could get the cutest photos I’ve ever taken in my life. Here’s one of them. Seriously. Tutus rule!

Tutu cute!

I got together with my friend this weekend to take her son’s 6 month photos. Here’s what I have to say about this little guy….


I have a hankering for BABY!!

Caroline – 4 mths

I’m not sure what to write here. It’s all pretty self-explanatory. This is Caroline and the photo was taken one week before her 4 month birthday. I took it because she’s adorable, her mommy and daddy let me and because it brings me joy. I don’t think there needs to be any other reason.

One of the things that I have always thought would be fun to do is be a baby photographer. Sure there would be days when the child is just not happy to be participating in such an event and they let you know it. That might be a little trying on the patience. But for the most part, they are so beautiful and bring such joy to be around. Seems to me that the good days WAY outweigh the tough ones.

This weekend, I went to my friend’s house to try and take some Anne Geddes-type, sleeping baby photos of her 12-day-old little girl. But even after a 75 degree house and a 25-minute feeding, that child was wide awake and not looking to fade off any time in the near future. So we ditched all effort and props that were gathered for the sleeping baby poses and moved forward with shots of her simply wrapped in a blanket. It actually turned out not too bad. This one might be my favorite of the day. It makes me giggle every time I look at it. Man! I would love to do this for a living.

This little girl was hanging out with her mommy one day while listening to some good music being played at a grand opening to a bike shop. She was in one of those sling things that hold the baby comfortably and more naturally on someone’s back. She was the most content baby with such beautiful blue eyes. She watched me with calm expression while I took a couple photos of her. Kind of like she knew something that I didn’t but was being patient while I figured it out.
