Most of you know already that Karma Baby was my first baby.  I created the sling just weeks after Elijah was born and now there are babies all over the world being snuggled in them.  Although photography is my favorite occupation, I am still working hard on Karma Baby.  Here is a little shoot we did with a wonderful Boulder mama and baby this morning.  It was very cloudy and dark but we managed to get some good photos!

Dylan

January 11, 2009

I have honestly never had a newborn shoot like this before.  Dylan is quite possibly the calmest baby I have met yet.  The entire shoot was peaceful and relaxed.  We moved him around so many times.  We got him naked, then dressed, then naked, then dressed, and on and on.  We propped him up in all sorts of cute positions.  And he was just happy and looking around the whole time.  He cried once.  I tried to capture his face because, as a mother, I know that while you may not like that screaming baby face now, in just a few years you will cherish every photo of him crying.  But when I went to snap the picture he immediately went serene again. It will be so nice to have those sweet baby days back again.  I just told my almost-four year old to get back in bed and he looked down, shook his head, and said “Chill out, Mama. Just chill out.”

What a great family!  I got to photograph Levi’s extended family just after Christmas.  They were so much fun-I will post more later.  And Levi was just too cute!

I found this photograph online and wish I knew who the photographer was.  It was just an image on a random website.  But I love it!  When I was pregnant with Elijah You could also see his little foot and heel sticking out my side, but I never saw such detail in his toes.  Get ready to see a bunch of maternity photos of me and then newborn ones soon after:)
