Meet Baby Etta

You have already seen Emily highly pregnant and ready to give birth.

Now meet Baby Etta! Etta is four weeks young and learning her away around in this world, mostly sleeping and lying very close to Mommy. Emily glowed when I came to her house to take the pictures for my book project. Soon Emily will share her story, and I will post it when it is ready.

Baby Zen Moments

Meet Baby Ivey in Novato, Marin County. She is already in Zen mode, as all Babies actually are – so I believe. Her mom had the great idea to have a picture taken with Ivey getting to know herself in the mirror. Actually mirror photography can be a little challenging, because of all the things that can show up, if the angles are not placed quite right. So we had fun finding a good angle to make an appealing picture. And Ivey had no objection whatsoever. Also we only used natural light for this picture. While I usually prefer to add Quantum flash to my child photography, the starburst in the mirror is not always desired.

Isn’t she adorable finding out how those mirrors work? As she grows up she will probably find out how to use mirrors for self-love exercises, for approving the way she looks, and of course Zen questions like ‘Who am I really?’.

And how do I know all of those things – maybe because I have tried them all 🙂 ?

Likely Ivey will find very different ways to make use of mirrors in her life, and enjoy her image reflected in mirrors…
