So before I post I wanted to talk about a few things. First, remember how I stated that I had noticed some of my photographs being used illegally in other places. Well, that is still going on. So not cool, in my book. I really didn't want to have to water mark my photographs but honestly I'm not going to let this continue. So let the water marking begin. I'm sorry that I had to do it.
Also, you have probably noticed that for a photographer I really don't post my work here that often. That is because for the most part all the pictures I take besides family candid's are being used for other things, magazines, articles, and mostly for teaching. When I teach a class I usually have between 60-80 images. It's a lot to keep under wraps but I do try to make sure that my classes are "fresh and new". However, today is going to be an exception. So if you are taking my CKU class you might not want to look. I don't get the chance to shoot many five day old baby's so these will be used in my new portraiture class but I HAD to share them because they are of my sweet baby nephew and he is so adorable. And I know that my whole family will want to see them.
Stephanie is so talented, she received her masters in Literacy with an emphasis in Children's Literature. She has a Blog all about it and she was a part of the committee of judges for a new children's book award this year so books are a big part of her life and she already has a children's library with thousands of children's books. I thought this first photo was very appropriate for her and baby Creeds future life. And P.S. I thought it was pretty brilliant of me to pick out the book titled "Actual Size" for the top of the stack.
I wanted to get a photo of Stephanie with Creed. The first few weeks of Motherhood are such a hard growing time. At least they were for me. But Steph, I know that you and Creed were meant for each other and you are going to be the best Mom. Just try to make it through the next few weeks of sleeplessness and everything will look much better!
I love how this photograph of Larry and Creed's feet turned out!
And I have to say this is my favorite photo of all. So sweet, calm and peaceful.
